GAINESVILLE, Florida (AP) - A Taco Bell customer is facing felony charges after police say he threw his soda on a cash register after becoming upset that his order wasn't prepared correctly.

Thirty-year-old Suresh Chapman was being held Tuesday at the Alachua County jail.

The Gainesville Sun reported that Chapman visited the restaurant Sunday and became angry after his order wasn't correct. He allegedly threw his soda on the register and credit card machine, causing $2,500 damage and shutting down the restaurant's computer system. Police said the restaurant lost $3,000 in business before the system was repaired.

He was charged with damaging a computer system with a loss greater than $5,000, a second-degree felony. He was also accused of violating his probation on a previous child abuse case and was held without bond.
