Heavy.com has researched Merrill Lynch wealth manager James Iannazzo after he went after shop employees - throwing a smoothie at them and made statements about one staffer's immigration status.
"He was arrested and charged with second-degree intimidation based on bigotry or bias, second-degree breach of peace and first-degree criminal trespass after the Saturday, January 22, 2022, incident," the report explained.
It all happened because the man didn't tell the staff that there was a peanut allergy, he only said "no peanut butter." But for those with severe allergies, using a spoon or pitcher that touched peanut butter can be deadly. Typically when food service workers are told that there is a severe allergy, additional measures are taken.
The videos show Iannazzo demanding to speak to the person who made the drink, but they couldn't tell him which did.
"Stupid f*cking ignorant high school kids," he ranted. He was then asked to leave after demanding to speak to a manager. They told him that he could call the corporation to file a formal complaint. Iannazzo called the employee a “f*cking b*tch."
Heavy revealed that staff had to block the door because Iannazzo tried to get behind the counter to the workers.
“There was one girl, she was 16. Literally, it was like her second day,” the TikTok video explains. “She was in the back, already called the police.” She and another co-worker were forced to use their bodies to block the door because “before I started recording he tried to get in multiple times.”
No assault charges have been filed yet because to do, so the employees would have to file a report, police explained.

WISN host Adrienne Pederson grilled Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) about his toxic brand and his low approval ratings.
In an interview on Sunday, Pederson asked Johnson how he planned to win re-election with an approval rating of 35%.
"You will have to get some moderates to vote for you," the host noted, "people who really aren't part of your base. How will you do that as someone who has become a very polarizing figure in politics?"
"First of all, I'm not a polarizing figure," Johnson shot back. "It's just that people in the legacy media call me one and all of the sudden, you become one. I'm not a polarizing figure at all. I'm just trying to convey the truth. I've done a really good job as Wisconsin's United States senator."
"How do you get that 35% approval rating up?" Pederson pressed.
"It's not surprising having survived years' worth of attacks from the legacy media, which again is pretty much the communications apparatus for the Democrat [sic] Party," Johnson replied. "Maybe my poll numbers have slipped."
"So you blame your poll numbers on the media," the host observed.
Johnson then suggested that the poll numbers were "wildly off."

Ex-prosecutor details questions investigators will have for Bill Barr about Trump's election overthrow attempt
It was revealed this week that former Attorney General Bill Barr is cooperating with the House Select Committee investigating the Jan. 6 attack.
Speaking to MSNBC on Sunday, former federal prosecutor Barbara McQuade explained that Barr was in a position to observe a lot of what was going on between former President Donald Trump and the Justice Department.
"You know, it's always been a little bit of a mystery as to why he left his position in mid-December of 2020," she recalled, talking about Barr's abrupt resignation with the claim that he wanted to spend Christmas with his family. "Most often, you'll see an attorney general stay around until after the inauguration, and at that point, you'll see the deputy continue to serve in an acting capacity. For him to leave one month short of the expected term was very unusual. We know that they had some differences of opinion after William Barr publicly stated there was no widespread fraud in the 2020 presidential election. It seems to me he's likely in the center of many conversations about the executive order, about [Trump's] efforts at the Justice Department — 'say there was fraud and let me do the rest.' I can see why Committee Chairman [Rep. Bennie] Thompson (D-MS) is interested in seeing what Barr has to say."
The conversation then turned to a draft of an executive order that Trump's office penned that would have directed the Pentagon to seize all electronic voting machines.
"What I would be looking for is ways to figure out, was there a conspiracy?" said McQuade. "Were these guys sort of spitballing and exploring what they thought were legal theories or working before, during, and after Jan. 6 to try to maintain power even though they knew it was fraudulent? We now know that none of these claims of fraud had any evidence whatsoever. So, what was going on there? Was this, the charge I would be looking at, was this conspiracy to defraud the United States, and that is an agreement by two or more people to obstruct the lawful execution of the laws of the United States? And if that's what's going on here, I think William Barr can provide a piece of information that could be helpful to the committee in determining whether laws need to fill those gaps, but as a prosecutor, whether laws were broken."
