A Florida man pulled out a gun on a Starbucks employee, who turned out to be the local police chief’s daughter, over not having cream cheese for his bagel.
The 38-year-old man, later identified as Omar Wright, threatened Miami Gardens Police Chief Noel-Pratt’s daughter when his order was wrong at the Starbucks drive-thru in Miami Gardens, Florida on Wednesday, according to Local 10 News.
“She felt in fear of her life,” Chief Noel-Pratt said, adding that her 23-year-old daughter is “traumatized” as a result of the incident, the Associated Press reported. “It was upsetting to me to know that someone would go to that extreme not having cream cheese on his bagel.”
Her daughter told authorities she gave him the cream cheese before he drove off and left the scene, the AP reported.
Wright was arrested and charged on Thursday with armed robbery and assault, as Local 10 News reported. An arrest report obtained by the outlet said that Wright’s actions “caused a well-founded fear in the victim leading her to believe that if she didn’t give him the cream cheese, whether he pays for it or not, her life was being put at risk.”
In a statement, Starbucks said they were “concerned” after being informed about the incident, according to the news station.
The statement said: “The safety of our partners (employees) and customers is always our top priority, and we are grateful to learn that no one was injured,” according to Local 10 News.
