Kirill Kirnos, 48, of Forest Hills in the borough of Queens, was charged with disorderly conduct for the ruckus that unfolded in the Route 37 eatery around lunchtime.

Police were summoned at 11:40 AM to the restaurant, where Kirnos was seated and had begun behaving strangely, mumbling and acting aggressively toward workers, authorities said.

Upon being asked to leave, Kirnos refused, placed a backpack in the rear of the dining area, began taping a box to his head, wrapped his arms in black tape, and shouted, “You can’t make me leave, you don’t know what’s in the bag and I’m going to blow this place up,” police said.

Workers called police, the diner was evacuated, and Kirnos was apprehended while K-9 team from the Ocean County Sheriff’s Office swept the room. No explosives were found, police said.
