A woman and her boyfriend are facing assault charges after she allegedly shot a worker with a NERF gun in the drive-thru of a local fast food joint, reports KMOV.com.
Cameras caught the whole thing: A car pulls up to the drive-thru but its occupants don’t buy anything. Then ffffffpt! Out shoots a NERF dart, heading directly for the worker at the window.
“The Nerf dart strikes her. Nobody was injured in this case but if it hits an eye or something an injury could result from this,” said a St. Louis County police officer.
Just because someone isn’t hurt doesn’t mean you’re off the hook — the presence of fear alone can prompt a third-degree assault charge. So keep all guns, toy and otherwise, at home.
