Customer Allegedly Pulls Shotgun On Taco Bell Employee For Forgetting Hot Sauce

Some people take their missing hot sauce far too seriously. An irate Taco Bell customer was so enraged after he found out his order was missing the condiment that he allegedly returned to the restaurant with a shotgun and pulled it on the offending employee. Now the suspect has been arrested and faces up to 10 years in prison.

According to KCTV 5 Kansas City, police say the intoxicated customer handed the food back to the employee, then reached for the shotgun. The employee scampered away through the drive-thru window.

When confronted by police at his home, the man eventually admitted returning to Taco Bell with a weapon, but said he was armed with a tire iron rather than a firearm. Police found a loaded shotgun in his bedroom. Since the suspect has prior felony convictions, the man faces federal charges of being a felon in possession of a firearm, in addition to state charges.
