Mistake On McDonald’s Order Leads To Police Standoff
The Consumerist ^ | January 9, 2013 | Chris Morran

Posted on 01/09/2013 2:32:13 PM PST by Slings and Arrows

A simple fast food order turned into a prolonged police standoff in Wichita, KS, this morning.

According to reports, a couple went through the McDonald’s drive-thru around 7:30 a.m. today. After pulling away from the window, they realized their order was wrong.

But instead of pulling into the parking lot and going into the restaurant, they pulled back into the drive-thru and attempted to cut off another vehicle in line.

This led to a verbal altercation between people in both vehicles. The driver of the car with the mixed-up order allegedly threw a crowbar at the other car. Her passenger then got out of their vehicle with a shotgun and fired once. The Wichita Eagle reports that the shot was fired into the driver’s side door of the car they had cut off, while KAKE-TV says that the shot was fired into the air.

Regardless, it appears that no one in the other car was injured.

Police tracked the male suspect — the one with the shotgun — a house and began blocking off local streets while they await a search warrant.

UPDATE: According to this Tweet from KAKE reporter Jared Cerullo, around 3:00 p.m. ET, police finally arrested the suspect who had been holed up inside a house since this morning’s incident.

Well, DUH!

WHO pulls away from the window at McDonalds before checking their order?

Did they not have a cell phone? Usually they call 911 first when a fast food place runs of out of McNuggets or screws up a order.

My brother had a friend who, as a teenager, smashed his fist through the McDonalds’ drive through window because they got his order wrong. He had some “anger management” issues. It made the paper and he got probation and fine. Some people just don’t know how to calmly deal with mistakes in a manner that doesn’t get them arrested or killed.

I actually feel sorry for the male suspect. First McDonalds screws up his breakfast order.

Then his day gets a whole lot worse. MUCH worse.

Since there was no actual gunplay for the police to be involved in, they went around the neighborhoos and shot all of the dogs they could find.

“WHO pulls away from the window at McDonalds before checking their order?”

My Brother :-)

They recently opened a brand new McDonalds right near our neighborhood, only a couple minutes drive away. My brother is a regular at McDonalds and before this new one opened, he had a much longer drive to the other ones, about 15 minutes away.

Not too long ago he came home from this new McDonalds, telling me that he bought me a big mac, but I told him that there was no big mac in the bag. He then complained that hes been to the drive through of this new McDonalds 10 times before and ALL ten times they got his order wrong. I said to him, “maybe you ought to check your order before you drive away”. And he replied, “yeah, I’ll do that from now on”.

“Nice” set of tats on the perps (She has a bunch, too. Look closely if you can. That isn’t a necklace). What is it with ink these days? I’m starting to think tats make you Honorary Amish. But I know and love friends that have them so I don’t know.

The last time I went to a McDonalds I ordered the same thing I always do. Two McDoubles (dollar menu) and a small coke. Well they repeated back to me two double cheese burgers (non-dollar menu) and a small coke. Well, I didn’t realize the mistake until I was rolling away from the screen. I tried to fix it at the window with the cashier. She said, “No, you said, two double cheeseburgers, and that is what your getting.” At this point I didn’t pay yet, so I simply just drove away. I felt bad, but what was I supposed to do, argue? This was about a year ago, never went back.

What the hell is wrong with that guy.

Pulling a shotgun and shooting at another car?

Everybody knows you drive back to the window and pull the moron who got your order wrong out of the window by the shirt collar, then stomp him in the ribs a few times with some good Carolina engineer boots.

The Mickey D’s around here used to ask you to pull away from the window and when your order was complete - they’d bring it out to you.

I would politely decline. “No Thanks.” The pimple face would stare at me blankly and go get the manager. The manager would ask me to move up and they would bring out the order. Again I would say; “No thanks.” He’d ask why and I’d explain.

One time a crew cheif wasn’t buying it. “We DO NOT get get the orders wrong! Move up!” I asked him what I’d ordered. He read it back to me. He got it wrong. “SEE!!!” I gave him what for. For sure.

That was then. Nowadays? They don’t ask you to pull up any more. And they are much better at getting the right order out on time.

What would happen if an innocent person(male or female) dressed in similar clothes, no weapons, and just strolled through a shopping mall or car dealership?
I’ll bet the Feds/Blues would find some excuse to detain(abuse) that person, search(ransack) his home and kill his dog(s)!
