Two people have been arrested in Texas on suspicion of pulling a gun on a manager of a McDonald’s restaurant during a dispute about salt on their fries.
Davion Guillory, 23, and Treykia Cohen, 25, have been charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, following an incident which occurred at the McDonald’s restaurant located in the 128 block of E. Richey Road in Harris County on July 4.
The Harris County Precinct 4 Constable’s Office said in a statement that deputies were flagged down at the McDonald’s in order to respond to reports of an aggravated assault.
Surveillance footage showed that the pair also displayed firearms at the drive-thru towards the manager during the verbal altercation.
The pair then drove off, but deputies were able to locate the car and detain them. A firearm was also found inside the vehicle.
Constable Mark Herman said that further investigations revealed that Cohen was already out on probation for aggravated robbery with a deadly weapon at the time of the incident.NEWSWEEK SUBSCRIPTION OFFERS >
“Davion Guillory and Treykia Cohen were arrested and booked into the Harris County Jail, charged with Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon. They each received a $10,000.00 bond out of the 178th and 180th District Court,” Herman added.
McDonald’s has been contacted for comment.
There have been a number of incidents recently in which suspects allegedly threatened or attacked staff at McDonald’s restaurants over minor disputes.
In June, Robert Golwitzer Jr., 42, was arrested after allegedly threatening to blow up a branch in Ankeny, Iowa, because they did not give him dipping sauce to go with his chicken nuggets.
Golwitzer was arrested on suspicion of false report of explosive or incendiary device, after ringing up the restaurant to make the bomb threat on June 26.
The same month, a woman was arrested on suspicion of assaulting two McDonald’s staff members because they refused to give her a slushie consisting of three different flavors.
A clip of Cherysse Helena Cleveland getting into a physical altercation with two female staff members went viral after it was posted online by Brian Allen on June 14.
Cleveland is seen behind the counter attempting to make her own slushie before punching the manager in the head and telling her to “get the f*** out, b***.”
When another staff member said that she is going to call the police, Cleveland says: “Go ahead, I don’t give a f***,” adding “I will go to f****** prison.”
Cleveland was arrested and charged with two counts of misdemeanor assault.
