Gun pulled on fast food workers at Myrtle Beach drive-thru

A man pulled out a gun and pointed it at Kings Highway drive-thru fast food workers early Sunday morning after he walked up and the employee refused to serve him, according to a Myrtle Beach police report.

Officers were called about 3 a.m. to Cookout at 1800 N. Kings Hwy. Employees there told authorities a man walked up to the drive-thru window and tried to order food. He became upset when workers told him they couldn’t serve him at the window if wasn’t in a vehicle, and he made a gun gesture with his hand, the report states.

Employees went back to work, but were interrupted when the man came back and was allegedly pointing a gun through the window, police said.

One worker used his cellphone to call police. The man pointing the gun got into a silver car parked near the drive-thru menu and left the area.

The car was driven by another man who looked like he had been trying to defuse the situation, a worker reported to police. The employee told police the man driving tried to convince the suspect to get back into the car.

No injuries were reported during the incident, according to the police report.
