People are going crazy over these Popeyes chicken sandwiches.
One customer crossed the line!
According to a report, a Popeyes employee in Houston was held at gunpoint when a consumer asked for the new chicken sandwich and was told that it was sold out.
The Washington Post reports, “five adults with a baby headed to a Popeyes in Houston’s southeast at about 9 p.m. Monday to order chicken sandwiches at the drive-through, employees told ABC 13. Informed that item was unavailable, the group tried to enter the store, leaving the child in a car.”
Staff members were able to “lock the group out,” but one of the members pulled out a pistol and started demanding the sandwich.
Luckily no one was hurt and the man ends up leaving in a blue SUV. According to Houston police, the man who pulled out the gun could face aggravated assault charges. Authorities say the suspect has dreadlocks, face tattoos and was wearing a black shirt with red sleeves.
The article also reports that last week, one consumer is suing for $5,000 Popeyes for running out of chicken, claiming they provided “false advertisement.”
The food chain announced that the sandwich will be back, so everyone calm down!
