Ga. man jailed over restaurant's lack of barbecue sauce

MACON, Ga. (AP) — Lack of a condiment at a Georgia restaurant has led to the arrest of a customer.

The Telegraph reports early Tuesday, 43-year-old Willie Drake, of Columbus, sat down at the counter of a Waffle House in Macon and placed an order. Three employees told police Drake asked for barbecue sauce, but was told they didn't have any.

A Bibb County sheriff's report notes the man then "began screaming obscenities and insulting" the workers, trying "to create conflict, saying things such as, 'I wouldn't [expletive] ask you if I didn't know you had it!"

He then reportedly added: "I'll go to [expletive] jail over some barbecue sauce!"

And he did.

Drake faces a charge of disorderly conduct. He's currently free after posting $390 bond.

It's unknown if he has an attorney.
