Woman Pulls Gun On Fast-Food Worker Over Missing Chicken Nugget

Woman Pulls Gun On Fast-Food Worker Over Missing Chicken Nugget

Bit extreme.

A woman has been arrested after pulling a gun on a fast-food worker for not giving her enough chicken nuggets.

Now, don't get me wrong, we all love chicken nuggets, but is this not a bit of an OTT reaction?

According to the Pierce County sheriff's office in Washington, the 19-year-old woman pulled up to the drive-through at Jack in the Box and already had an 'attitude' because she had waited so long for her food.


She then went on to complain to the employee working through the window that they had forgotten her drink and hadn't given her enough nuggets.

When she was handed her drink, she complained something was in it and threw it through the window at the restaurant worker.

The employee then closed the window, which led to the driver and her female passenger hopping out of the car and screaming and banging on the window. The driver then reappeared with a gun, which pointed at the crowd of four staff members who were huddled at the window.


Cops were able to track down the vehicle after Jack in the Box staff gave them the number plate. When they turned up at the property they found the teenager hiding in the attic. She was swiftly arrested for three counts of assault in the first degree.

An 18-year-old man who was seen running towards the property was searched by officers who found a stolen 9mm loaded handgun in his pocket. He was booked for unlawful possession of a firearm and resisting arrest.

A 14-year-old girl was also arrested in connection with the incident. She was slapped with multiple charges for assault, possession of Xanax, and resisting/obstructing law enforcement.

During her arrest, she told officers: "None of this would have happened if the Jack in the Box people had just given the correct order and not run their mouths."

I think the lesson here is that if you've got a problem with your fast food just politely ask the staff to correct it, rather than pulling out a gun. Pretty easy rule to live by, really.
