LOSING THEIR MINDS: Man arrested twice in 3 hours for entering Wawa without mask, making threats, cops say

A 70-year-old Toms River man was arrested twice in less than three hours Saturday after violating the state’s emergency orders during the coronavirus pandemic by entering separate Wawa stores without a mask and threatening to hit people with a pipe, authorities said.

Stephen Breza became belligerent when he walked into a Wawa on the 100 block of Route 37 east in Toms River at around 11 a.m. and was told he needed to have his face covered, the New Jersey Office of the Attorney General said Monday.

Breza then started screaming and cursing at employees before threatening to hit another customer with a pipe, according to Toms River police. He screamed at the responding officers and resisted arrest prior to being taken into custody, officials said.
