A man was arrested Tuesday after he threatened to shoot a Checkers drive-thru clerk if he didn’t give him a hamburger, according to a report.
West Palm Beach police said Dechazo Harris, 27, pulled up just after 1:30 a.m. on March 29 to a Checkers drive-thru, 1209 N. Dixie Highway. He ordered a meal at the speaker, pulled around to the window and wanted to submit another order, according to an arrest report.
But the clerk told him he would have to drive around to get a second order. Harris then pulled out his gun, according to police, and told the clerk to get him his second meal.
“Give me a hamburger or I’ll shoot you,” he said as he got out of the car, according to the report.
The two passengers in his car persuaded him not to shoot the clerk, so he got back in his car, got his meal and left, according to the report.
Officers were able to get Harris’ license tag number off of his car from security footage. They arrested him on Tuesday, and he is being held at the Palm Beach County Jail on $5,000 bail.
He faces aggravated assault charges.
