Either something’s afoot in the world of chicken fast food restaurants, or it’s just a coincidence that a man accused of robbing a KFC at gunpoint happened to be an ex-employee of another chicken joint, Chick-fil-A.

According to police, the suspect pulled up to the drive-thru window and pointed a gun at workers at a KFC this week in South Carolina, demanding money. He made off with $516, reports The Rock Hill Herald Online.

Cops caught sight of his car the next day and tried to apprehend him using sirens and lights, but he allegedly led them on a high-speed chase, crashing into another car in the process.

When police eventually caught up with him by using stop sticks and arrested him, he said happened to work 40 hours a week at Chick-fil-A. But his now former employers apparently want nothing to do with this chicken crime, saying he was fired back on June 18 when he didn’t show up for work for two days.

Cops say they found the cash drawer still in his car, as well as less than a gram of methamphetamine. He’s been charged with armed robbery, possession of a firearm during a violent crime, possession of methamphetamine and failure to stop for a blue light.

He’s also been forbidden from stepping foot into any KFC or speaking with anyone who works there. So if he wants to eat fast food chicken in the future, he’s likely going to have to go back to Chick-fil-A.
