ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - A customer's request to put ketchup on a Philly cheesesteak caused a ruckus in an Orlando Subway shop.

Sandwich maker Lawrence Ordone told customer Luis Martinez that Subway doesn't have ketchup when the order was placed on New Year's night. There are differing accounts on what happened next, but Orlando television station WFTV  reports Ordone lost his job.

Ordone says he told the customer he's "never put ketchup on anybody's sandwich." He says Martinez got "mouthy." Martinez denies that, but Ordone admits he flew off the handle at that point.

WFTV reports Ordone shoved a chair to the side and told Martinez "fight me like a man."

Martinez called 911. Ordone left the building. No one was arrested. But now Ordone is looking for a new job.
