James Iannazzo, 48, was charged with intimidation based on bias, breach of peace, and criminal trespass after the Saturday disturbance.

The child was taken to and treated at a local hospital after Iannazzo called 911, police said. Convinced that a store worker had put peanuts in his smoothie, Iannazzo launched into a tirade, swearing and calling one employee an “immigrant loser” in a video of the event.
