A lawsuit filed in a Houston court alleges a Jack-in-the-Box employee shot at a Florida family over something senseless… curly fries.
The alleged incident happened in 2021, but the video of the incident is just now being released by the attorney who represents the family, KTRK News reported.
Alonniea Fantasia Ford, the employee, has already served out her sentence, but the family also wants the company held accountable.
Ford appears agitated in the video clip as she deals with customer Anthony Ramos, who was in the car with his pregnant wife and their 6-year-old daughter, who was in the back seat, WESH News reported.
The couple reportedly paid for a combo but didn’t get their curly fries. From there, an argument transpired, but not even halfway into it, Ford can be seen with a gun.
Minutes later, she is captured throwing ice and condiments out the drive-thru window and then firing at least twice at the family.
Ford was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon but was able to plead guilty to a lesser charge of deadly conduct. She served one year of probation.
The family has filed a lawsuit against Jack-in-the-Box, claiming it was negligent for not keeping customers safe from potentially dangerous employees.
Jack-in-the-Box argued back against the allegations and denied them by saying it has no control over or legal responsibility for a third party like Ford.
Ford is also named in the lawsuit, which seeks at least $250,000 in damages.
