DELRAY BEACH, Fla. – A Delray Beach man wasn’t happy that a nearby McDonald’s didn’t have any ice cream, so he pulled out a replica AR-15 rifle while he waited in the drive-thru line, police said.

Jerry Henry was arrested Monday after the incident at the McDonald’s on Linton Boulevard.

Delray Beach police said Henry was a passenger in a car at the drive-thru when the driver, who was ordering food at the intercom, became upset with the employee who was taking his order.

    More questions after reading the article than before. That’s some tip-top reporting. Replica? As in non-firing movie prop type replica, or as in AR style firearm? Did it have a red muzzle? Inquiring minds want to know.

      Other reports state it was an airsoft AR.
      I have no idea why he thought that would be a good idea. CCW could have perforated his person…

    At least in TX, it doesn’t matter if the weapon operates or not or is even lethal. If a reasonable and prudent person would have perceived it to be a weapon then that is what’s charged. Think of the “armed robber” with his finger gun in a jacket in a bank – makes no difference that there was no actual weapon. A reasonable and prudent person would have interpreted the actions as a lethal weapon and responded as if it were a lethal weapon.

    As a Floridian, I must state that this knucklehead is lucky. McDonald’s doesn’t allow its staff to carry weapons or resist (even tossing food or drink will get you fired.)

    Now, if this dipshit had tried that at Sonny’s, well, just about half the customers would have lit this asshole up like a Christmas tree.
