Suspect pulls gun and threatens McDonald’s clerk over missing item

CHICKASHA, Okla. – Chickasha Police say a customer pointed a gun at a McDonald’s drive thru employee after something was left off their order.

It happened late Tuesday night at the Chickasha McDonald’s on Fourth Street.

“A vehicle came through the drive thru at McDonalds,” Chickasha Police Major Elip Moore said. “They got their order from the cashier.”

But there was something missing, and the customer was not happy about it.

“At that point a rear passenger in the vehicle had brandished a weapon,” Moore said.

And pointed it at the McDonald’s worker at the window, because the order was missing either fries or sauce. Police are still investigating that part of the crime.

“He raises the pistol and makes the comment ‘Don’t make me use it,’ and then the vehicle drives off,” Moore said.

Police are not sure it the incident was a prank or a downright mad customer. Either way, the juvenile employee was scared.

“Regardless if it was a toy gun or a real gun when they pointed it at the person like it was a real weapon, the person believed it was a real weapon,” Moore said. “So it’s no difference. It’s felonious pointing of a firearm.”

The case is still under investigation.

No arrests have been made.
