For reasons known only to 45-year-old Joe Testa and perhaps a few others who aren’t talking, he walked into a Brooklyn Stop & Shop supermarket with a bunch of avocados. If he was trying to sell them to the store, he must be a poor salesman, as an argument quickly broke out between himself and a clerk. If he was looking to return them, that was a little more successful…in a way.
Testa allegedly threw one of the fruits at the woman, striking her in the face. She was treated for bruising and released from Lutheran Medical Center.
Testa was charged with misdemeanor assault.
