Ketchup on cheesesteak request causes ruckus inside Subway store



    Cheesesteak "Wit" Ketchup Request Leads to Fla. Ruckus
    A request for ketchup on a cheesesteak led to an argument inside a Florida Subway.

    A customer's request to put ketchup on a Philly cheesesteak caused a ruckus in an Orlando Subway shop.

    Sandwich maker Lawrence Ordone told customer Luis Martinez that Subway doesn't have ketchup when the order was placed on New Year's night.

    There are differing accounts on what happened next, but Orlando television station WFTV reports Ordone lost his job.

    "He wants ketchup on the Philly cheesesteak and I have never put -- we don't even have ketchup at Subway -- I've never put ketchup on anybody's sandwich," Ordone told WFTV.

    He says Martinez got "mouthy." Martinez denies that, but Ordone admits he flew off the handle at that point.

    WFTV reports Ordone told Martinez to “fight me like a man.”

    "He shoved a chair to the side, like knocked it down to come at me, and I said, 'This is going to be serious,'" Martinez told WFTV.

    Martinez called 911. Ordone left the building. No one was arrested. But now Ordone is looking for a new job.
