An employee at a Texas fast-food restaurant drew a gun on a customer when he complained about his missing curly fries order.
CCTV footage shows Anthony Ramos visiting a Jack-in-the-Box drive-through in Houston, having picked up his pregnant wife and young daughter from the airport, according to local news outlets.
The employee, Alonniea Ford-Theriot, is then seen handing over his order, but when Mr Ramos mentions the missing curly fries she walks off and pulls a handgun out of her back pocket.
Another worker then goes over to the service hatch while Ms Ford-Theriot stands back, gesturing angrily before throwing what appear to be ketchup packets at the customer.
Mr Ramos then throws back his incomplete order, catching Ms Ford-Theriot on the face as the window slams shut.
She pulls it open again with her gun drawn, pointing it and appearing to shoot at Mr Ramos as he speeds off.
Mr Ramos is now seeking $250,000 (£206.000) in damages over the incident, which took place in March 2021, having brought legal action against Jack-in-the-Box and its employee.
CBS News reported that the fast-food chain denied all allegations. Ms Ford-Theriot previously pleaded guilty to a charge of deadly conduct.
