A Georgia murder suspect with a pending warrant called 911 to complain about being served cold fries at McDonald’s — and then ended up in handcuffs after trying to run from police.
Antoine Sims, 24, was wanted for missing a court date in a 2018 case in which he and two others are accused of setting fire to a car containing a woman’s body after a botched drug deal led to a shooting had, according to the Atlanta Journal. Constitution.
Sims was apparently out on bail and wearing an ankle bracelet when he visited a McDonald’s in Kennesaw on Friday and got into a verbal argument with the franchise owner, who also called 911.
The angry and hungry suspect said he and his fiancee ordered food but weren’t given a receipt because of a machine problem, so they didn’t know her order number when it was called. When Sims went to the counter to get his food, he found that the temperature of the food wasn’t to his liking.
“I’ll try the fries, the fries are lukewarm but they’re not hot,” he was heard telling a police officer in bodycam footage outside the store. He asked for a new order of fries, but was refused and instead offered a refund, which would not reach his account for days, he added.
The McDonald’s clerk gave a different description, saying Sims got rowdy and threatened him, “You better give me some friggin’ fresh fries, motherf—ker,” he tells the officer in the footage. Sims then “shoved” the man his food and drink, he claimed.
He eventually kicked Sims out of the store and asked him never to come back, he added.
“I mean, the guy is obviously on probation, has an ankle bracelet on,” the unnamed worker said in the video.
Outside the restaurant, the cops tell Sims he can’t return to the restaurant and ask him to sign an acknowledgment, making him visibly nervous as he asks if he’s under arrest. He refuses to go near the officers to sign the document.
“No, I’m scared of you all, I just did three years,” he said, as the video shows. An officer approaches him and Sims sprints away, setting off a chase.
He is later seen fleeing an apartment building, where he is reprimanded, falling to the ground and screaming in pain as officers arrest him.
Sims had attempted to break into an apartment on the third floor of that building before escaping, the Journal-Constitution reported. Police also found 31 grams of marijuana in his fiancee’s car and Sims was charged with possession of a controlled substance with intent to distribute, the newspaper reported.
Sims has been charged in the death of Adelisa Murtatovic, who allegedly went into an apartment with two men in 2018 to buy drugs from Sims, according to the Journal-Constitution. Gunfire erupted, according to the newspaper, and the woman was hit while she was in a car owned by one of the two men.
Sims took that car and allegedly set it on fire. He was later captured by US Marshals in Wisconsin, Fox 5 reported. The other two men were also reportedly charged.
“It’s very unusual for someone who knows they’re wanted by the police to call the police, but Mr. Sims did,” Officer David Buchanan told Fox.
The bizarre incident came a week after an argument over cold french fries led to the fatal shooting of a McDonald’s employee in Brooklyn. Michael Morgan, 20, allegedly shot and killed Bedford-Stuyvesant McDonald’s employee Jeremiah Webb outside the fast food outlet after he was called into the restaurant by his mother – who claimed she was given cold fries and laughed off .
