Chris Heuring: Despite the mugshot grimace, he's really the Hamburglar.
Police in the southeastern Missouri town of Benton have charged 27-year-old Chris Heuring with driving while intoxicated and unlawful use of a weapon after he allegedly pulled a shotgun on the drive-thru workers at an area McDonald's.
Heuring reportedly arrived at the McDonald's around 11:40 p.m. Saturday after the restaurant had already closed for the evening. As Scott County Sheriff Rick Walter tells the Southeast Missourian
"He told the employee he wanted food and pointed the shotgun at that
time," Walter said. "He said, 'If I don't bring some food home for my
wife, she's going to kill me.' At that point, the employees didn't want
to stick around to listen to any more demands."
The Associated Press
adds in its reporting that Heuring's wife is six months pregnant
. And, well, you know how ornery expectant mothers can be when it comes to food.
