A court date has been set for a former Burger King employee who was accused of pointing a gun at customers through a drive-thru window, said police officials in Livonia, Michigan.

Dustin Rocheleau, 24, is scheduled to appear in court on August 5, following the incident that occurred on April 28, 2021, at a Burger King located in Livonia.

In a statement posted on Facebook, Livonia Police Department said Rocheleau was working the drive-thru window at the Burger King when he pulled a gun at three customers after a disagreement over the method of payment.

The customers quickly drove off and alerted Livonia Police, the statement said. After the altercation, Rocheleau left the Burger King but police were able to track him down and arrest him without incident. Officers said they found a gun in his backpack, according to the statement.

Burger King did not immediately respond to Insider’s request for comment.

Rocheleau waived his preliminary exam but will be back in court on August 5 for an arraignment. He faces an eight-count felony warrant related to firearms charges, the police statement said.

Fox News reported that Livonia police posted security-camera video footage of the incident on Facebook, although the post now appears to have been removed. According to the outlet, it showed Rocheleau pointing a gun out the window, followed by a manager telling Rocheleau to leave.

In a separate incident in June, Memphis police arrested two customers who were accused of shooting inside a Burger King restaurant. The customers had complained about being served a chicken sandwich with too much hot sauce, Insider reported.

Texas police arrested two individuals for allegedly pointing a gun at a McDonald’s manager in a dispute over the amount of salt on their fries.

The alleged incident occurred on July 4 at a McDonald’s restaurant north of Houston, The Harris County Precinct 4 Constable’s Office said in a statement.

Authorities said that video surveillance and multiple witnesses caught the suspects pointing a firearm at the manager during a verbal dispute at the drive-thru section of the restaurant.

Davion Guillory, 23, and Trykia Cohen, 25, were later charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, police said.

After the altercation, the pair drove off, but authorities were able to track down the car and detain them, per the police statement. Constable Mark Herman said that each individual was bailed on a $10,000 bond.

Herman added that Cohen was already out on probation for aggravated robbery with a deadly weapon when the incident occurred.

McDonald’s did not immediately reply to Insider’s request for comment. Guillory and Cohen could not be reached for comment.

A Missouri man faces 30 years in prison after he was found guilty of attacking a McDonald’s manager with a rake. The victim subsequently lost an eye and now wears a prosthetic one, KPLR reported.

The incident, which took place in Chesterfield, Missouri, on January 9, 2019, occurred after a dispute involving the defendant, Kendell Cooks, who said his daughter was fired by the manager in question.

There has been a recent uptick in violent attacks taking place at fast-food and drink chains. This month, police said they arrested two customers for a shooting at a Memphis Burger King restaurant after they were reportedly served a chicken sandwich with too much hot sauce, per Insider’s Grace Dean.

In another similar incident, a Florida man was accused of pulling a gun on a Starbucks employee, who turned out to be the local police chief’s daughter, over not having cream cheese for his bagel.

The McDonald’s attack in Chesterfield, Missouri, led to Cooks, 38, being charged on three counts of first-degree assault, armed criminal action, and a felony count of property damage.

It all began after a McDonald’s employee – Cooks’s daughter – was dismissed by her manager, Jeffery Jackson, for reportedly not wearing the standard work attire and using improper language in front of customers, per KPLR.

Cooks claimed the manager shoved his daughter out the restaurant door but this was contradicted by video footage, according to St. Louis County Circuit judge Nellie Ribaudo.

Following the firing, Cooks and several others then drove to McDonald’s and beat Jackson, who was sitting in his car during a lunch break. They used a 5-foot-long rake obtained from nearby trash as weapons.

KPLR reported that the attack was filmed in part on Jackson’s dashboard camera, and that glass and blood was found inside the victim’s car after the offense.

Jackson had to undergo five surgeries to repair his vision but still ended up losing an eye, per KPLR. “It was a very dangerous crime, a life-threatening crime,” Sam Alton, chief of staff for Wesley Bell, the prosecuting attorney of St. Louis County, told the outlet.
