An argument over payment at an Arkansas McDonald’s early Tuesday left one man recovering from a gunshot wound, police say.

The customer placed an order in the drive-thru, according to police, and walked into the Little Rock restaurant around 3:30 a.m. after he said he didn’t get change back after paying, KARK reported.

A worker and the customer got into an argument before another worker escorted the customer outside, according to THV.

The customer told police he and the worker started fighting before the worker pulled out a gun and shot him in his right index finger, The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reported.

When police arrived, they found a bullet hole in the front window of the restaurant as well as a shell casing, THV reported.

The customer was taken to a hospital where he was treated for his injuries, according to KARK.

The restaurant’s manager told police the worker had been sent home “because he shot someone,” the Democrat Gazette reported.

No arrests have been made, according to KARK.

The incident is under investigation.


I wonder if shooting a customer is a verbal warning or if he's going to have to sign a write-up. :lol:

Also, does this mean Florida Man has moved to Arkansas?

Arkansas is GOP territory.

So I take it, shooting belligerent customers is not McDonald's policy?

It certainly wasn't when I worked there. Jeez, they don't even want employees confronting robbers.

This take "have it your way" to a new level....

But wait...."Have it your way" was once the slogan for Burger King :)

Amusingly, in a sad, perverse, sort of way, the shooting location is something like 700 feet from an Arkansas State Police office,

I'm not surprised the staff are carrying weapons when they are terrorised by Ronald McDonald's business associates
