Lemonade lack led to customer attack

IMMOKALEE, Fla., June 16 (UPI) -- Florida authorities arrested a man who allegedly attacked a Burger King employee at a drive-through window because the eatery was out of lemonade.

Brenda Jackson, 51, manager of the Burger King in Immokalee, said the customer, identified by police as Pedro Vargas, 36, became irate when she told him the restaurant was out of lemonade Sunday night, the Naples (Fla.) Daily News reported Wednesday.


Jackson and employee Karen Guzman, 32, said Vargas then exited his pickup truck and grabbed the manager by her shirt while screaming at her.

The Burger King workers said Vargas let go at the prompting of a female passenger and left.

Police said the women took down Vargas' license plate number and he was arrested at his home. He was charged with battery.
