Police: Patron angered by ketchup pulls gun at McDonald’s

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) — Authorities in Tennessee say an irate woman pointed a gun at fast food workers because they gave her ketchup instead of jelly.

Asia Vester, 20, was arrested Tuesday and charged with aggravated assault and unlawful possession of a weapon, news outlets are reporting.
