Weekdays 10:30am - 2pm

I’m sure you know the struggle of getting excited for McD’s breakfast and getting there too late..but with this guy, it was the opposite.

Fox32 reports that 36-year-old Virginia man James Springer went to McDonald’s last weekend wanting a Happy Meal. Unfortunately for him, he got there just before 10am and lunch doesn’t start until 10:30. When employees told him that, he was less than thrilled and started waving around a BB gun and threatening to “execute” everyone.

Of course the police were called, but Springer had already left, however after the police left the restaurant, Springer came back. Did he return to hurt people? Or just because it was after 10:30, to get his Happy Meal?

We may never know, but Springer was eventually arrested and faces charges of disorderly conduct and brandishing a weapon.

I should add my favorite part of the story…Springer told police that he “incorrectly believed recent decriminalization efforts made it legal to point BB guns at people.”
