He’s back. On Sunday, the vertically challenged Chris Morgan, aka “The Bagel Boss” and “Angry Bagel Guy,” went crazy on some people at a marina on Long Island.

The five-foot tall Morgan, whose threatening, vulgar rant in a Bagel Boss store in July went viral, was arrested after “causing a disturbance” at the Bay Shore Marina, shouting and swinging a small bat according to police.

Watch the arrest below:

Cellphone footage shows Morgan screaming and cursing after being taken down and handcuffed by police who were patrolling the area. “F**k you, you a**hole!” Morgan said. Then he yelled, “He sprayed my eyes.”

Police indicate that he was hauled away and taken to a local hospital for a psyche evaluation.

As he was being taken into custody, someone is heard telling Morgan, “We’re sick of your nonsense.”

A professional assessment of the guy is probably overdue and few who have seen the video of Morgan’s bizarre meltdown in a Long Island bagel shop would argue with that. He somehow got triggered and unleashed a tirade at other customers about being rejected by women because of his diminutive stature.

“Why is it okay for women to say, ‘Oh you’re 5 feet’ on dating sites — you should be dead. That’s OK?” he yelled. Apparently the beginning of his rant was directed at a woman.

“Everywhere I go I get the same f**king smirk with the biting lip,” he screamed.

The New York Post reported that Bagel Boss employees said Morgan walked into the store early in the morning on July 10 “screaming about the dating sites and how women hate him.”

“This is crazy but the man was very upset he was short; he went off on the women about dating sites,” a manager identified as Patty told The Post.

“He just went totally nuts. He said ‘why are you smiling at me?’” she said. “He started saying, ‘it’s because I’m short and nobody wants me.’”

Diana Reyes and three friends were waiting in line to order, and she began to film the bagel shop incident after they had heard him being rude to a female worker and he flew off the handle after they came to the defense of the worker. “My friend was like, ‘She’s just trying to do her job, leave her alone.’”

At that point, Morgan’s rage was fully engaged.

“It was insane. I personally never have heard anyone say that but to be there in person, it’s insane to see that someone has that mind process,” said Reyes.

Another man could be heard telling Morgan to “calm down,” but that was not to be.

“Shut your mouth,” Morgan fired back. “You are not God or my father or my boss. Dude, do you want to step outside?”

At that point, fearing things were going to be going ballistic, the man took Morgan down. “He is our hero. If he didn’t tackle him, it would’ve gone on and on,” the manager told The Post.

Subsequent reporting on Morgan found that he is divorced, owns a cleaning business, and lives in his van. He told the Post that “he lost his cool Wednesday while waiting for his breakfast sandwich because the female workers were ‘giggling’ and ‘acting like they were in high school.'”

“It’s about belittlement, what she was doing! Giggling, all this crap!” an agitated Morgan said. “Being used by women, going on dates, they lie, say they like me and then use me for my money!”

Police were called to the Bagel Boss in that incident but no charges were filed.

Taking advantage of his newfound notoriety, Morgan is scheduled to fight retired baseball player Lenny Dykstra next month in a Celebrity Boxing match in Atlantic City.
