Man Pulls out Gun After Popeyes Ran out of Chicken Sandwich

Man Pulls out Gun After Popeyes Ran out of Chicken Sandwich

The chicken sandwich saga reached a new level of madness Monday evening when an armed group of people rushed a Popeyes restaurant in southeast Houston.

The Popeyes sandwich generated national buzz soon after it was released, with a clever social media campaign, in the middle of August.

A group of men pulled out a gun at Popeyes because it was out of chicken sandwiches, employees claim. "No chicken sandwich. Was told to come back this day- still no sandwich".

Crag Barr of East Ridge, Tennessee is challenging the company, accusing Popeyes of false advertising, deceptive business practices and causing him to waste "countless time driving" to and from local chains to find the sandwich. They had just been told at the drive-through window that the store was sold out of the popular sandwiches.

In Houston, things got more serious.

Employees said that a group of six-three men, two women, and a baby-were informed at the drive-thru that the restaurant's chicken sandwiches were sold out, according to ABC7.

"It was more of an aggravated assault because he was displaying a weapon and threatened employees", Lt Larry Crowson of the Houston PD told ABC13.
