by Samantha Whidden

Peter Dante, the star of Adam Sander’s hit comedy Waterboy, was reportedly filmed as he went off on a waitress in a profanity-laced tirade on Monday (January 3rd).

According to the DailyMail, the Waterboy castmate went off on the Quarters Korean BBQ in L.A.’s Koreatown waitress after he was instructed to put on a mask due to COVID-19 concerns. The hostess of the restaurant was seen standing next to a sign that said “No Mask No Entry” inside the restaurant. 

The witnesses of the incident stated that the Waterboy star nearly reduced the waitress to tears. The event happened after she refused to seat him. During his incredibly intense meltdown, he was heard calling the waitress garbage and a c—t. He was also wearing a pair of cannabis leaf pajamas. “You know you’re garbage, right?” He sneered at the restaurant worker. “Go back to the f— you go back to school. Where’s your boss? Bring your boss over here right now.

As he was waiting for the restaurant’s manager to appear, the actor went off on another member of the staff. 

The ‘Waterboy’ Star Was Reportedly Arrested in September 2021

The Waterboy star’s latest outburst at the Quarters Korean BBQ in L.A.’s Koreatown comes just a few months after he was arrested for allegedly threatening to kill his neighbor and his children over construction noise.

As previously reported, the LAPD arrested the Waterboy actor after he made the threats. He was taken into custody the morning of September 15th. The actor was charged with a felony offense and held on a $50,000 bail. He will be appearing in court about the incident on January 12th.

Both the restaurant and neighbor confrontation are not the only incidents that the Waterboy actor has been involved in. TMZ reports that in 2013, Dante was thrown out of the J.W. Marriott in Santa Monica, California after he screamed at the overnight staff. During that event, he was allegedly heard calling the staff members racist and homophobic slurs while making threats as well. 

The media outlet also revealed that the Waterboy castmate actually told the Santa Monica police officers that he was part of the Hells Angels. He also apparently had a major Santa Monica PD connection who “knew him very well and they weren’t going to help me at all.”

It was also noted that the police officers knew the actor and had already taken his side. One of the offices even instructed a hotel staffer to actually give Dante a full refund on his stay. It’s not clear if the staffer ever complied with the request. 

When asked about the alleged situation at the hel involving the officers, the Santa Monica PD stated “We deny the allegations. Nobody gets special treatment because of their status.”
