IMMOKALEE, Fla., - Authorities in Florida said a Burger King employee fired during an argument with his boss allegedly threatened the manager with a knife.

Collier County sheriff's deputies said the manager of the Immokalee eatery told them Nicholas Trejo, 21, asked for time off in mid-May for a family emergency, and the manager responded it would not be possible to pre-plan if it was a true emergency, the Naples (Fla.) Daily News reported Friday.

Trejo allegedly became enraged and yelled at the manager, who responded by firing him.

Trejo then allegedly threw his uniform shirt, chicken tenders, hamburgers and chicken patties at the manager. He also allegedly spit in the other man's face.

The manager said Trejo then allegedly threatened him with an 8-inch knife before an assistant manager intervened and Trejo left the restaurant.

Trejo was arrested on a felony charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and a misdemeanor charge of battery.

In an Obama/Bloomberg world, which is the deadly weapon— the knife, chicken tender or hamburger? Or is the manager really lucky that he didn't go for the 32 oz cup?

Obviously we need to ban meat. And spit.

Seems like a failure of enculturation. This is why we need to seal our southern border.

He would have been wearing his nose on the inside of his face if he threw anything at me.

Little Frikkin’ punk.

The Coalition of Imokalee Workers, is here: http://www.ciw-online.org/

Don't forget the Taco Bell Boycott and that the CIW has successfully made money off threatenting and shaking down fast food (including mcDonalds) for the use of florida tomatoes. Empowerment gone crazy. The workers think they own the place.

He misunderstood his training lessons:

“Throw nuggets throw the Whopper
Use the knife on head and lop or
anything that is improper
Act up your way”

I am curious what the “emergency” was going to be. Perhaps he just used the wrong word.

I guess he’s gonna need a new job. I wonder if his old boss will write him a letter of reference.

Well, there's the family emergency, and his time off mid May. The guy's a prophet!

Well the prophet’s time line was wrong, the family emergency is going to be his unemployment and the pending jail time.

Wouldn’t it be lovely to plan one’s emergencies in advance?

I’ll have to try that sometime.
