A York man was arrested after arguing over a turkey on Christmas Eve, according to a York Police report.

The report states a clerk at the Bi-Lo grocery store located off East Liberty Street in York called police around 5:30 p.m. Dec. 24 because of an irate customer. Police determined the man, 38, called to ask the store to hold a turkey for him.

When he arrived at the store employees told him there were plenty of turkeys available in the cooler, the report states. The man became angry that the store had not set a turkey aside and reserved it for him.

The police report states a clerk offered to go get a turkey for the man, but he screamed profanities, causing a disturbance in the store.

Police asked the man to calm down but he became more angry. He was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct.
