HACKETTSTOWN — Police have arrested and charged a town resident who they say caused a commotion, and a bit of damage, at the McDonald's on Mountain Avenue Friday afternoon.

Hackettstown Police reported that officers were called to the fast-food establishment shortly after 3 p.m. Friday to investigate a "disorderly male" inside the restaurant. But when police got there, they found Michael Garcia, 19, outside, running around the building.

Further investigation revealed that Garcia allegedly damaged a stainless steel door below a soda machine, sat on the counter, and punched an electronic ordering kiosk.
