Police: Patron angered by ketchup pulls gun at McDonald’s

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -- Authorities in Tennessee say an irate woman pointed a gun at fast food workers because they gave her ketchup instead of jelly.

News outlets report 20-year-old Asia Vester was arrested Tuesday and charged with aggravated assault and unlawful possession of a weapon.

Memphis police say Vester was in the drive-thru line of a McDonald's last week when she received her food and realized her request for jelly was either forgotten or unheeded. She instead received ketchup.

Words were exchanged with employees and Vester was accused of pulling out a gun and pointing it at employees, the affidavit says.

Surveillance video led police to Vester.
