A woman was arrested in Florida after allegedly brandishing a pistol at two McDonald's employees at the drive-thru after she was told an item she asked for was not on the menu.
According to Fox News, Quavi Young, 26, made a second pass through a Cocoa, Florida, McDonald's drive-thru to ask for an item that didn't exist, the worker asked why Young was mad, and that's when things took a turn.
According to the arrest affidavit, Young "requested a meal which was not on the menu" and eventually brandished a handgun while threatening the employee by saying she would "push her ‘s--- back.'"
After arguing with the drive-thru speaker, Young reportedly went to the second drive-thru window, grabbing her gun and putting it in her lap. The gun, an M&P Shield handgun with a drum-style magazine, sat on the woman's passenger seat before she picked it up.
Employees soon called the police, who made contact with and arrested the woman.
The 26-year-old was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon without the intent to kill, open carry of a weapon, and driving with a suspended license. She was booked on a $7,500 bond and eventually released.
Early 2023 was particularly rough for fast food workers; in February 2023, an Altamonte Springs, Florida, woman waved a loaded handgun at McDonald's drive-thru employees. The woman was reportedly upset by the fact that no one asked if she was using the McDonald's rewards program, as she believed she was entitled to a free cookie.
The woman was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, improper exhibit of a firearm, battery causing bodily harm, and resisting an officer.
Earlier that month, a 16-year-old was shot at a Wendy's in Lynn, Massachusetts, while working the drive-thru. The glass at the drive-thru window was pictured with multiple bullet holes.
