A murder suspect on the run from police in Georgia was arrested on Friday after calling 911 to complain that his McDonald’s fries were too cold.

Antoine Sims, 24, had a dispute with staff at McDonald’s in Kennesaw, Georgia, which led him and management to call the police. When officers arrived at the scene, they discovered Sims had an outstanding warrant for non-appearance in a homicide case, FOX 5 of Atlanta reported.

Sims was previously arrested in March 2019 as he was accused of setting fire to a car with a woman’s body inside in October 2018. He was charged with murder and ordered to appear in court.

Friday’s incident began when Sims and his fiancée were waiting for their food at McDonald’s when ordering seemed to be taking too long, Sims told Kennesaw police, FOX 5 reported.

Sims then approached the cashier to ask about the order, which was already waiting on the counter, he said. He didn’t receive a receipt, so he couldn’t tell if his order number had been called, he told police.

“So now our food is there, cold,” he explained to the officer, according to the report. “So when I go upstairs, I try the fries. The fries are lukewarm, but they’re not hot.”

The Sims then demanded a new order of fries, rather than a refund, and then got into an argument with management. Management then demanded that he leave the restaurant and both parties called the police, FOX 5 reported. The manager later told police that Sims cursed them and threw his order at them.

“I never want him to come back here again,” the official told the officer, according to the report. “I mean, the dude is obviously on probation (out on bail) – he’s got an ankle bracelet.”

Officers told Sims he was not permitted to enter the restaurant and asked him to sign a criminal trespassing notice. They also requested that Sims’ information be released to criminal databases, which made him visibly “agitated”, according to a police report.

“I’m scared of you all. I just turned three, sir. I’m scared of you all, sir,” Sims told police, FOX 5 reported. An officer then approached Sims , who ran away, triggering a pursuit.
