MARRERO, La. (AP) — A man is accused of pointing a gun at the manager of a Popeyes in Louisiana during a dispute over condiments.

NOLA.com/The Times-Picayune reports 59-year-old Earl Jethroe of Marrero walked into the eatery Friday, ordered a meal and apparently took issue with the condiments provided by employees.

At some point, the arrest reports says, Jethroe threw his chicken across the counter, pulled a pistol from his waistband and pointed it at the manager. Jethroe didn’t fire the weapon, and no one was hurt.

Authorities say deputies later found Jethroe at another restaurant, yelling. They say he smelled of alcohol and was unsteady on his feet.

Jethroe was arrested and charged with offenses including aggravated assault with a firearm. It’s unclear if he has a lawyer who could comment.

    Earl Jethroe. I don’t know, but I’m guessing he’s white? Why? The police knew he was armed, but didn’t run in with guns blazing. They are already making excuses for him: smell of alcohol, unsteady on his feet. Now my favorite white privilege quote in this story; Jethroe didn’t fire the weapon, and no one was hurt. I see probation and treatment in his future. I’m deeply cynical, but hey……that’s life.
