WEST PALM BEACH, Fla., May 25 (UPI) -- Police in Florida said a man allegedly pointed a gun at three women so they would let him cut in at a McDonald's drive-through lane.

West Palm Beach Police said James Lee Cruz, 58, allegedly pulled his car up to another vehicle at the McDonald's on Palm Beach Lakes Boulevard around 1:35 a.m. May 13 and pointed a gun at the women inside their car, the Palm Beach (Fla.) Post reported Friday.

Police said the women allowed Cruz, who they said was shouting at them, to pass them in line and then followed him to his home while on the phone with 911 dispatchers.

Cruz was arrested and charged with three counts of aggravated assault. He was taken to the Palm Beach County Jail, with bond set at $7,500.
