A Burger King worker in Florida posted $1,000 bail and was released after being arrested for allegedly shooting at the vehicle of a customer who threw mayonnaise in her face, according to local police.
Shateasha Hicks, 30, was arrested on March 17 and charged with discharging a firearm in public at a Burger King in Miami Gardens in northwest Miami-Dade.
Hicks opened fire on a male customer after the two argued at the drive-thru window, the customer allegedly ended the argument by squirting or throwing mayonnaise in Hicks’ face, then driving away from the drive-thru window and parked in the Burger King parking lot.
Hicks then exited the building, went to her car, grabbed a gun, and shot five times at the person’s vehicle as he drove away, according to an arrest report.
Hicks wasn’t finished, then she got into her car and tried to flee the scene but was arrested after cops spotted her vehicle about a mile from her home, the report said.
Police were able to retrieve the gun from the floorboard of Hicks’ car, and investigators recovered five bullet casings in the Burger King parking lot.
After being arrested, Hicks posted her $1,000 bail and was released from the Miami-Dade County jail on March 18. It’s unclear if the customer, who authorities haven’t tracked down, was injured in the shooting.
