Jeremy Combs, a 30-year-old convicted felon, didn’t get his hot sauce at a local Taco Bell. The Missouri man discovered that the hot sauce was missing after he returned home after placing the order in the drive-through lane, and became very angered.
Combs was mad enough that he returned to the store with a shotgun. Seriously dude, who does this kind of stuff? Now, he faces both state and federal charges. Unfortunately, none of the charges are for being stupid.
It seems that Combs ordered at the drive through, went home and discovered … no hot sauce. He told the police he “became upset and drove back to Taco Bell to confront the employee.” He denied the shotgun version of the story but said he was brandishing a tire iron. Police, however, searched his home and found a Mossbery shotgun, with live rounds of ammo affixed to the side of the gun, under the mattress in his bedroom.
Combs finally came clean and said he did, in fact, use the shotgun at the Taco Bell.
Security cameras don’t make things up. Threatening a fast food employee because there wasn’t any hot sauce is stupid. Thank goodness it didn’t go any further.
