When your local McDonald's runs out of ice cream, we all agree that it can be a real bummer. One Delray Beach man got so upset, however, that police say he pulled out a replica rifle in the drive-thru line over it!
Jerry Henry, 19, was arrested Monday after the incident at the McDonald's at 1220 Linton Boulevard in Delray Beach.
Delray Beach police say Henry was a passenger in a car at the drive-thru. The driver, Michael Delhomme, allegedly became upset with the employee taking his order at the intercom because the ice cream machine wasn't working.
The employee told police that he watched from the store's surveillance video as Henry got out of the passenger seat, went into the trunk and removed what appeared to be an AR-15 rifle.
The employee told his co-workers, and they went into the bathroom to hide and call 911.
Police say surveillance video confirmed employees' accounts of what happened.
According to the report, Henry admitted that Delhomme asked him to get the "stick" from the trunk after the dispute about the ice cream. Henry said he put the gun between his legs in the front seat.
Henry was arrested on a charge of improper exhibition of a firearm. He was released later Monday on his own recognizance, according to an arrest report.
