The lack of hot sauce in his to-go order got one man so angry that he returned to confront a Taco Bell employee with a shotgun, according to police.
And now the man faces up to 10 years in prison.
Jeremy W. Combs, 30, of Lee's Summit, was intoxicated just before midnight Saturday when he drove to a Lee's Summit Taco Bell to place an order in the drive-through, according to court documents. He returned when he got home and discovered his order was missing the hot sauce he asked for, according to court documents.
The Taco Bell employee said Combs handed the incorrect order to him, "and then reached for a shotgun, which had shells on the side," according to court documents. The employee said he fled from the drive-through window. He said Combs appeared intoxicated, according to court records.
Police went to Combs' home and discovered him "highly intoxicated," according to court records. Combs initially denied leaving the home, but later said he had taken a tire iron to the Taco Bell, according to court records.
But surveillance video shows him pointing a shotgun at the employee, according to police.
A loaded shotgun was taken from Combs' bedroom. He admitted that he bought the shotgun from a drug house in Independence, according to court records.
Police said Combs had three felony convictions. As a result, Combs was charged in federal court with being a felon in possession of a firearm, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office. He also faces state charges.
