NORTH SALEM, N.Y. – A frequent customer at North Salem’s Blazer Pub caused a disturbance around dinnertime on Friday, when she insisted she had been overcharged by 50 cents for an order of blue cheese, according to police. The bartender told police that the woman was loud and abusive to the other diners and was frequently a problem in the restaurant. The owner told police they will no longer allow her to come to the restaurant.
Officer Paul Smith located the woman, who had paid her bill and left on foot. She was told that if she returned to The Blazer she would be arrested for trespassing.
The North Salem Police also reported the following incidents:
- An early morning commuter walking through the MetroNorth parking lot at the Purdys Station Friday was struck and knocked down by a 2006 Jeep Commander. She complained of back pain and was taken to Northern Westchester Hospital by the North Salem Volunteer Ambulance Corps.
