The Associated Press

LA GRANDE, Ore. A man who got steamed when a Denny's restaurant charged extra to substitute hash browns for eggs on his Grand Slam Breakfast was ordered to perform 20 hours of community service for creating a scene.

Michael Lawrence Fesser, 24, was accused of screaming obscenities at the manager, throwing a quarter at her and refusing to leave.
