SAUKVILLE, Wis. — A man who berated a woman who had more than 10 items in the express lane of a Saukville grocery store has been given a disorderly conduct citation.

The Port Washington woman said she asked the express lane clerk if she could check out because there was no one in line. While she was checking out, a male customer approached and began harassing her, even calling her fat and ugly.

The woman said that's when she called 911. Officer Barry Effinger said the man was creating a disturbance so he gave him the $429 citation. Effinger said he has investigated similar conduct by the man in the past.

The woman told WISN-TV her harasser deserves the ticket.
