HOUSTON – A Houston man got “heated” over a cold sandwich and threatened to kill a Subway manager and blow up the shop, police said. Delvin Nelson, who works for the city’s public work’s department, was arrested for making a terroristic threat Wednesday night. Nelson was apparently angry because his steak and cheese sandwich wasn’t hot enough.
“It got pretty heated, where he threw a sandwich down at her and told her that he would kill her and blow up the building,” Houston police officer Jim Atkins said.
Nelson got even more agitated after the manager offered to make him a new sandwich and went into the kitchen and threw the food at her, police said. The city has suspended Nelson from his job pending the outcome of the case.
