A Florida man was taken into custody after he allegedly suggestively revealed a gun to other drivers so he could get in front of them in line at the drive-through.

Police in West Palm Beach, arrested 58-year-old James Lee Cruz at a local McDonald’s after three women called to report a man in a silver Buick pointed a gun and yelled something they could not hear, all because he apparently did not want to wait his turn.

The women backed up their car and allowed Cruz to pull ahead of them, thereby revealing his license plate, the number of which they wrote down. They then called the police and gave them the number as they followed him to his home.

This occurred at around 1:35 a.m. so one has to wonder how long the line could have been.

James Lee Cruz was later arrested and charged with three counts of aggravated assault.

He is being held in lieu of $7,500 bond at Palm Beach County Jail.
