Pizzeria Worker Charged in Westport Bat Threat

WESTPORT, Conn. – A Norwalk man was charged with breach of peace Friday night after police received a report that he had threatened his coworker with a baseball bat.

Officers were called to John's Best Pizza on Post Road West on a report that one of the male employees was threatening another male employee with a bat in the rear parking lot, police said. The suspect, later identified as Jesus Rodriguez, left before officers arrived.

Rodriguez, 32, was later located at a home in Norwalk. He told police that he did confront the other employee, and admitted to shoving him, police said. However, Rodriguez denied threatening his coworker with a baseball bat.

Rodriguez was issued a misdemeanor summons for breach of peace and released on a promise to appear in court Feb. 7.

Also from the police blotter:

Bridgeport resident Beverley Stewart was arrested by Westport police Saturday on a warrant charging her with issuing a bad check, police said.

The warrant stems from an incident last June where Stewart, 22, opened a bank account with a check from another account that was closed, police said. Stewart was charged with fourth-degree larceny and released after posting a $5,000 bond. She is due in court on Feb. 8.
