This will look really good on his resume.
Parsippany, N.J., Radio Shack employee Andre Santiago, 20, is accused of punching a customer on Friday, according to NJ.com. He allegedly told authorities that he struck the man because he was being "sarcastic."
According to a police report obtained by Parsippany Patch, cops found the victim “holding a bloody paper towel to his left eye." The victim refused medical treatment.
Santiago was charged with assault.

She sure didn't have a peaceful easy feeling.
Vernett Bader, 54, is accused of stabbing her live-in ex-boyfriend Monday night because he wouldn't stop listening to The Eagles at their North Charleston, S.C. residence, according to ABC News 4.
Police say Bader was watching TV with the man's brother and told her 64-year-old ex to turn his music off. The ex responded by telling her to "shut up" and took her tolerance to the limit by continuing to play the classic rock tunes.
Apparently not one to take it easy, Bader then allegedly grabbed a bread knife and started swinging it at the man. He told police by the time he managed to get the knife away from her, the desperado was already gone, headed to the kitchen to get another, the Post and Courier reported. The victim locked himself in the bathroom to get away from her.
Police say Bader admitted to stabbing the man, but said it was out of self-defense because he was choking her.
Investigators, who noted there were no marks on her neck, did not believe her allegedly lyin' eyes.
She's at the Charleston County Jail now, and will likely make a court appearance one of these nights.
Eagles songs aren't the only music to push someone over the edge. In April, a Colorado woman allegedly started choking her boyfriend after he sang Macklemore's "Thrift Shop" 25 times.

Does the stand your ground law apply to shooting yourself?
If so, it might help Florida convict Mark Cruz, who accidentally shot himself this week despite being barred from owning a firearm. The 28-year-old Wimauma man was injured when his .22-caliber pistol fell out of his pocket and discharged, sending a round into his leg, the Sun Sentinel reports.
Cruz was banned from owning a gun after a 2012 conviction on cocaine trafficking charges. That could be why he threw the gun in a lake after he shot himself, NBC Miami reports. He reportedly wouldn't tell deputies where he obtained the weapon.
He was admitted into South Bay Hospital for treatment, but was uncooperative with deputies there, Bay News 9 reports.
He was arrested and charged with being a felon in possession of a firearm, carrying a concealed firearm and tampering with evidence. He was released Tuesday on $11,500 bail.

Nursing student Brett Bishop came over to his neighbor's in search of his dog. What he found was a whole mess of trouble.
The 21-year-old's unexpected visit to his neighbor's yard last month turned truly bizarre after he allegedly cut down his neighbor's U.S. flag, slashed the tires on a car, and then stole a bunch of frozen pork out of a freezer. He then returned to his yard and burned the flag.
Bishop, who told Peru, Ind., police that he'd been drinking at the time, said he remembers taking his neighbor's flag, but not burning it.
According to the Pharos Tribune, "[Bishop] said he remembered burning his hand when he was trying to light something with a cigarette lighter, but couldn’t remember what he burned." He also told police that he was concerned about his drinking, since he "was doing well in nursing school and was up for a promotion at his job."
Bishop faces charges of burglary, theft, criminal mischief and flag desecration.
He told police he'd been "huffin.'" -Let me add... that when you say HUFFIN, I think of two things -ONE- It makes me think you are riding a bike, kinda like a slang term for your Huffy bike or something. -TWO- It rhymes with muffin, and I am hungry right now. Meet my Moron of the Moment:
Robert Pry faces commercial burglary, theft, and other charges stemming from an alleged inhalants binge.
Pry was discovered passed out in the storage room of a Jonesboro, Ark., Kmart on the morning of Sept. 1. The 21-year-old was found "covered in vomit and urine" with 16 empty cans of air duster nearby. When police arrived at the scene, Pry reportedly told officers that he'd hid out in the store until it closed, then found the air duster and “huffed all night long."
As Gawker pointed out, the 16-can binge was preceded by a self-financed inhalants romp at Walmart.
Police found several more empty cans of duster in a truck that Pry said he'd borrowed from a friend. The man told police he'd spent $100 on duster at Walmart, and staged the alleged burglary at Kmart after he'd ran out.
According to the police, Pry said he was “addicted to huffing.” No kidding.
Considering that inhalant abuse has proved lethal before, the sheer amount that Pry consumed means that he's lucky to be alive.
In March, a 14-year-old honors student in Los Angeles died after inhaling air duster. According to KTLA, the girl's older sister "found her in bed with a can of compressed air still attached to her mouth, her nostrils taped shut."
In 2011, an Atlanta-area teen died after huffing compressed air from dust cleaner and ingesting other substances.
