WESTPORT — After being denied a free coffee, a Bridgeport man cursed out employees and customers at a local Starbucks, police said.

Westport police were dispatched to the Starbucks at 1 Parker Harding Plaza on Oct. 17 on reports of an unwanted party.

Witnesses told police that Gary Hubina, 65, of Bridgeport, entered the store and asked for a free coffee. When employees denied his request, police said Hubina grew hostile.

After being asked to leave the establishment, Hubina refused and instead went and used the bathroom. When he returned from the restroom, police said Hubina resumed his verbal attacks, swearing at the staff and customers alike.

When police arrived, they were able to detain Hubina without incident.

Hubina was charged with first-degree criminal trespass and breach of peace. He failed to post the $500 bond, and he was arraigned in court on Oct. 18.
