I’m guilty of this. Mostly as a young, dumb and broke adult. But for one teenager, asking for a water cup and taking it to the soda fountain only to get Coca-Cola, it meant jail!
In Springfield, Arkansas, 18-year old Cory Morris ordered a couple cups of water from the drive-thru at his local Mickey D’s. In which he immediately parked his car, walked into the restaurant, and filled those water cups with soda instead.
The manager of the McDonald’s caught him in the act and insisted he return the stolen cup of soda, in which Morris did not. When the suspect then fled to his car, the manager stood behind his vehicle to prevent him from leaving until the authorities arrived. However Morris decided to try and hit the manager with his car!
Following the incident, the soda thief was charged with felony robbery! Maybe you should think twice before pulling the same stunt at Chipotle!
