Woman Pulls A Handgun On Drive-Thru Workers Over A Free Cookie
Police arrested and booked a Florida Woman on Thursday night after she pulled a gun in the drive-thru of a McDonald's.
Officers with the Altamonte Springs Police Department arrested 24-year-old Amari Bente Hendricks on several charges, including aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, improper exhibit of a firearm, battery causing bodily harm and resisting an officer, according to Fox 35.
A McDonald's employee told officers that Hendricks was very upset after nobody in the store asked her if she was using the fast-food restaurant's rewards program, and felt she was entitled to a free cookie because of it.
When the employee got to the window, Hendricks was already yelling before they even opened the window. She was given a free cookie but still carried on arguing with the employee.
The worker told officers Hendricks suddenly reached down and grabbed a black handgun, inserted a magazine, and pulled back the slide. The employee said she "heard two click sounds associated with someone chambering a round."
Hendricks then allegedly pulled around and parked the car in front of the McDonald's and attempted to open the front door, but employees had already locked the door after seeing the gun.
Hendricks then reportedly forced herself into the store and struck one of the employees multiple times before making him leave the building.
Police found the employee with multiple scratches on his face and neck, but no serious injuries were found.
Hendricks wouldn't follow the officers' verbal commands, resulting in a charge for resisting arrest as well..
