Madrid - Police in Spain have detained a man who wrecked a bar after the olives he was served failed to come up to standard, Spanish media reported Wednesday.

The 54-year-old sat at the outdoor terrace of the bar in the northern port of Gijon and ordered the drink which came with the olives as tapas, the small snacks usually offered for free along with an alcoholic beverage in Spain.

Shortly afterwards he stormed into the bar to blast the quality of the olives and insult the owner of the bar, the Europa Press news agency reported.

When other patrons and bar staff told him to calm down and threatened to call police, the dissatisfied customer began smashing glasses and bottles and threw chairs and tables at cars travelling along the street outside, it added.

The man, who has a criminal record for theft, fled before police arrived but was quickly arrested. The damage to the bar was estimated to be worth some EUR 500 (USD 700).
