Justin Bitar, 24, of Weston, was charged with third-degree criminal mischief shortly before 4 p.m. Friday.
He allegedly became upset when a clerk at Cumberland Farms would not allow him to purchase cigarettes without identification. As he left the store, Bitar kicked the door, shattering the glass and drove off, police said. The clerk wrote down Bitar's license plate before he left the property. He was later arrested at home.
He is scheduled to appear July 26 in Norwalk Superior Court.
