On Nov. 4, the Largo Police Department responded to a call from the Checkers on Ulmerton Road in Clearview around 11:30 p.m. Employees got scared when Arce-Cabellero beat on the drive-thru window and screamed at them, furious that the restaurant didn’t have any leafy greens for his order.

The disgruntled customer’s meltdown caused the workers to fear for their safety and for the other diners inside, per a criminal complaint.
