An Arkansas man was arrested for felony robbery at a McDonald’s this week. No, he didn’t clear out the cash register at gunpoint or even swipe a burger.

No, our suspect stole a cup of soda. According to local media reports, this is how it went down:

The manager for the McDonald’s at 520 S. Thompson St. called police Monday to report a robbery, according to the report. The manager told police 3 people went through the drive thru and asked for 3 large waters. Those 3 parked, went into the restaurant, dumped out the water and then filled the cups with soda, the manager told police.

The manager asked the 3 people to return the soda. Two of them did, but one did not, the manager told police.

Then, the manager stood behind the suspect’s car and tried to stop them from leaving, according to the report, but the car reversed and hit the manager. The manager tried to get the keys out of the ignition and was hit on the hand and then by the vehicle again, the manager told police.

Police responded and found the vehicle at a nearby bowling alley where they arrested eighteen year old Cody Morris for felony robbery. He will make his first court appearance on Friday.
