A U.S. Marshal was arrested early Saturday morning near a Brooklyn McDonald’s after allegedly pulling a gun on an employee over some overdue fast food.
According to Gothamist, 30-year-old Charles Brown got into a heated argument with a 25-year-old employee about the wait for his meal. Allegedly, Brown angrily left the restaurant, pulled out a gun, and pointed the weapon at an employee from the outside of the McDonald’s.
Police found Brown about a block away with a loaded .40-caliber pistol. He is being charged with menacing, a licensed firearm transgression, and harassment.
The U.S. Marshal appeared in court and was released without bail and the U.S. Marshal Service is currently looking into Brown’s employment status. As a result of the incident, Brown is required to stay away from the McDonald’s location.
Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield, better known as Ben & Jerry’s have been arrested. The two co-founders of the popular ice cream brand were a part of a protest at the U.S. Capitol regarding money in politics, CNN reports.
The ice cream kingpins, along with about 300 other people, were arrested as part of the group Democracy Awakening’s protest on Monday. They were charged with crowding, obstructing or incommoding. Pretty much unlawful demonstration.
Before his arrest, Cohen said:
“The history of our country is that nothing happens – until people start putting their bodies on the line and risk getting arrested.”
Ben & Jerry’s website says that they were arrested for taking part in the protests where they were fighting to make sure “everyone’s voice is heard and the power of the country is returned to its people.”
Back in October 2014, a man in Wisconsin was pulled over for a DUI. He then gave the officer a pretty fishy excuse: it was the beer-battered fish that did him in.
Obviously no jury bought that.
John Przybyla had a blood alcohol level of .062. While this was below the state’s limit, it was over the limit for those with three or more drunk driving convictions. This was Przybyla’s 10th drunk driving charge.
When pulled over, he told the officer that he was drunk off a beer-battered fish he had eaten before he was stopped.
According to WILX, the 76-year-old Przybyla was now found guilty of operating a vehicle while intoxicated, operating with a prohibited alcohol concentration and operating with a revoked license.
As awful as working in fast food can get sometimes, the biggest rule is never spit in anyone’s food. A Dairy Queen employee in Baton Rouge, unfortunately, broke that rule and got himself arrested. Oh yeah, he spat in a cop’s burger.
Last week, Elijah Johnson was caught on surveillance footage spitting into the burger of a police officer. According to the police report, the officer had noticed something that looked like saliva on his bun and asked the restaurant if he could review the footage. There, Johnson was shown hocking one into a half-completed burger before going back to add the remainder of the ingredients.
Needless to say, he was arrested.
In the police report, Johnson admitted that he had several diseases. One of which was herpes.
The fast food employee was charged with mingling with harmful substances. Hopefully he doesn’t go back to handling food anytime soon.
Late last week, a man was arrested for trespassing in the St. Louis-based Budweiser Brewery. That man’s name was Bud Weisser.
The 19-year-old arrestee had entered the brewery after 6pm on Thursday, Fox 2 Now reports. Security officers found him and told him to leave the property. After an altercation, however, the officers were forced to call the police.
Weisser was taken into custody where he was issued summonses for resisting arrest and trespassing. Other than his fierce desire to be inside the property, Bud Weisser doesn’t appear to have any connection to Budweiser beer.
In 2014, the teenager had also broken into a gas station. Where some blood had been left behind after he climbed through a broken window in his attempt to escape. Weisser had turned himself in and was charged for the crime after DNA matched his blood at the scene.
Long story short, a drunk 19-year-old at the University of Connecticut busts into the student union and brashly demands that the manager serve him bacon jalapeño macaroni and cheese. Luke Gatti was denied service due to his current state and took it pretty badly. He blew up on the manager which eventually led to his arrest.
You can check out the original video above.
Looking back, the 9-minute video has quite a few great moments from different people trying to break up the incident. With tons of videos featuring bystanders egging on fights, the folks below give us hope that humans aren’t so bad.
Cept Gatti. He sucks. Here are our highlights.
At three different times in the video, fellow students try to calm Gatti down. While the last two quickly gave up trying to calm the guy, you have to give them props for trying to end the situtation.
The first one, pictured in the far left, made the most progress. He was even provoked by Gatti after he tried to step in. The altercation between the two students was broken up, however, by…
The No-Nonsense Employee
She wasn’t going to have any fights in her student union. Near the middle of the video, this employees quickly tells Gatti to take it outside.
The kid ignores her, however, and sets his sights on the manager once again.
Dude’s all business. Not only does he end to the situation, he handles it without any excessive means of force. Just sit on him and cuff him.
Bake him away, toys. Take him away, boys.
Mad respect to the manager in this video. Not only does he put up with the full force of Gatti’s entitled crap, he maintains his cool and composure even after the kid shoves him a few times.
Sure, he could have given in to Gatti’s mac & cheese demands, but the dude sticks to his guns. All the while, the 19-year-old constantly berates him with obscene names and phrases.
Even at the very end of the video, when Gatti spits on his face, he stays calm.
The real hero of this video is the worker who’s watching over his boss like a hawk. Guess he was in the back working, because you don’t really see him until the second half of the video. When he does appear, however, you can see he never once takes his eyes off Gatti.
In the second it takes Gatti to lay hands on the manager, the worker swoops in to defend his boss.
One’s barbecue dinner can be a very intimate experience. There’s nothing quite like the feel of soft warm BBQ sauce on your fingers as you nibble on a juicy piece of spare rib. For one woman in Texas, losing out on that experience was enough to go after her own brother.
Austin Police arrested 61-year-old Ethel Jean Banks with an aggravated assault charge for allegedly attacking her brother. The reason behind this attack? He ate her barbecue ribs.
Fox Baltimore reports that Banks took a butcher knife to her brother on the evening of Sunday, Sept. 27. When he spotted his sister coming at him, the victim booked it out of the house and called the cops.
Police arrived and arrested Banks who was also part of a similar incident a few months back.
In his defense, Banks’ brother says he didn’t know the ribs were hers.
When it comes to getting free food samples, sometimes things can get crazy. The Burbank Leader reports that an old man was punched in the face at a Costco while in line for a free taste.
The warehouse retailer was giving away pieces of Nutella and Eggo Waffles when a 27-year-old Derrick Gharabighi began to grab more than he needed. A 78-year-old gentleman in line asked the younger man to only take one and leave the rest for his fellow customers.
His remark, however, was met with a punch to the face by Gharabighi. The senior was taken to the hospital where he was treated for a one-inch cut and swelling to his eye.
Gharabighi was arrested for elder abuse and facing two felony charges.
