A Wendy's customer gets irate at drive-thru and pulls a gun on an employee.

Bastrop Police Chief Allen Campbell said police received a call at approximately 1:20 p.m. on Thursday from Wendy's.

"We had a report of an irate customer in the drive-thru," he said. "He was upset about the price of his order, and there was a verbal altercation with him and an employee there."

Campbell said Ricky Malone, of 11145 D R C Ln., Mer Rouge, reportedly flashed a handgun at employees during the altercation at the drive-thru window.

"We interviewed employees and witnesses about the incident," he said. "We drove to Malone's house, and he was there and had the handgun that was described."

Malone was arrested and transported to the Morehouse Parish Jail and charged with aggravated assault with a firearm.
