A group of people in Houston took wanting to taste Popeyes’ new chicken sandwich way too far. They allegedly held employees at gunpoint for selling out of the sough after sandwich. We can’t make this ish up. Details inside…
A group of people in Houston clearly missed Popeyes’ tweet that they were ALL OUT of their new chicken sandwich nationwide because they did the absolute MOST in an effort to get one.
According to reports, a group of men and women held Popeyes staffers at GUNPOINT demanding chicken sandwiches. Bruh.
So here’s what happened…
Three women, two men and a baby reportedly pulled up to the drive-thru and ordered chicken sandwiches. They were told that they were sold out of the sandwiches and that’s when ish went left. The group of people reportedly left the baby in the vehicle and tried to get inside the restaurant. One man is reported to have had a gun. Luckily, one of the employees was able to lock the doors of the store keeping them from getting inside. The group ended up driving away in a blue SUV.
Folks acting out like this with a baby?! Sheesh.
“It was more of an aggravated assault because he was displaying a weapon and threatened employees,” said Lt. Larry Crowson with Houston Police.
According to police, the man with the gun is described as having small dreadlocks, tattoos on his face and was wearing a black shirt with red sleeves.
Thankfully, no one was hurt and police are hoping security cameras captured the incident. Anyone with information is asked to contact Houston police. Houston police are searching for a group of men and women who held Popeyes staffers at gunpoint demanding chicken sandwiches.
Popeyes posted they were all out of sandwiches over a week ago, so we’re not sure why this group thought they would be able to get a sandwich that has clearly been off the market for over a week (aside from a few stragglers still out there).
