In a story that surprisingly doesn’t take place in Florida, Pennsylvania’s Theodore Gunderson, has been arrested on multiple charges stemming from an incident that began when he found that the Wendy’s salad he ordered did not have enough cucumbers on it. Look. I like cucumbers as much as the next person, but perhaps this type of reaction is indicative of a deeper problem.
So, what happened? Well, as we mentioned already, Gunderson ordered a salad at Wendy’s (that was probably his first mistake). Upon realizing that it didn’t have enough cucumbers in it, he threw it in the face of the salesperson before telling her:
“If I had a gun or a knife you would be the first to go.”
As you might expect, law enforcement was called and soon arrived at the fast food establishment, where they found Theodore sitting in his car. After finally getting him to roll down his windows, they informed him that he was under arrest and that he was not to leave the premises. The officer reached into Gunderson’s car to remove the keys from the ignition, and Gunderson, in-turn, put his foot on the gas and tried to drive off, with the officer’s arm still in his car.
In the end, the 58 year old fast food patron was arrested and charged with assaulting a law enforcement officer, a felony, and three misdemeanors, including making terroristic threats and disorderly conduct. He is currently being held on $50,000 bail.
