Newly Released Video Shows Jack in the Box Employee Shooting at ‌Customer Over Missing Curly Fries

In a shocking incident that took ⁤place in March 2021, a​ Jack in the Box restaurant⁢ employee ​in Texas allegedly shot at a drive-thru customer over a missing order ⁣of curly fries. The newly‌ released video of the confrontation‍ has left viewers ‍stunned.

The customer, Anthony Ramos, was in his vehicle with his pregnant⁤ wife and six-year-old daughter when‌ an argument erupted over the missing curly​ fries. The situation ⁢quickly escalated,⁣ and employee Alonniea Ford-Theriot, now 30, resorted to throwing handfuls of ketchup ⁣packets at Ramos from⁢ the drive-thru window. But that ⁣wasn’t the end of ⁣it.

As captured in ‍the video, Ford-Theriot then took​ a few steps away, pulled out a gun from her pocket, and fired shots at Ramos. Miraculously, the bullets missed him, and ⁣the vehicle sped away while Ford-Theriot closed the drive-thru window.

Ramos has taken legal action⁤ against Ford-Theriot and ⁣Jack⁣ in the Box, seeking $250,000 in ⁣damages. His attorney, Randall‌ Kallinen, obtained the video through discovery and recently released it‍ to the public.

“It was⁣ pointed right at ⁤me,” Ramos said. “I’m surprised she didn’t get me.”

“She’s aiming. She’s leaning. She’s ⁤not ​just ‌going up ‌in the air. She’s trying to kill them,”⁣ Kallinen said during a recent press conference.

Ford-Theriot told ABC13 that she’s “not an angry person” or a ⁤“mad monster.”

“I’m just ⁢a woman​ trying ​to work for my‌ family,” Ford-Theriot said, adding, “I’m not going to pull out no⁣ gun and shoot at somebody over no curly fries. ⁣Come on.”

The video has sparked controversy, with Ford-Theriot denying the shooting ⁤when questioned by the‌ news outlet. However, the⁢ absence of audio doesn’t negate the evidence of a muzzle flash and ‌the discovery of a spent shell ⁣casing‌ by ​the Houston police.

Initially⁢ charged with aggravated assault⁣ with⁤ a deadly weapon, Ford-Theriot pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge ​of deadly conduct. She has ⁤completed one⁤ year of deferred adjudication community supervision.

Kallinen revealed that Ford-Theriot had⁤ a prior conviction for ⁤terroristic threat before being hired by Jack in the Box, raising⁤ concerns about the company’s⁢ hiring process and the manager’s ‍failure to de-escalate the situation.

Jack in the Box has distanced itself from the incident, denying any responsibility and emphasizing‍ its commitment to ⁤providing a safe environment ‌for ⁤customers and employees.
