Armed group storms Popeyes demanding chicken sandwiches
Hey, when you need a chicken sandwich … you need a chicken sandwich.
But launching an all-out assault on Popeyes is probably not the best way to go about it.
Especially when you’re lugging an infant around.
According to a report from ABC13 News in Houston, a group of people — two women and three men and a baby — going through a Popeyes’ drive-thru Monday night were informed the restaurant had unfortunately sold out of chicken sandwiches. (It was Labor Day, after all. The chicken sandwich holiday.)
Well, they didn’t take the news so well.
Employees at Popeyes told ABC13 that the five people parked and hopped out of their black SUV and rushed the door, one of the men brandishing a gun.
“One of the males became enraged, pulled a pistol and threatened the employees of the store because they didn’t have a chicken sandwich,” Houston police spokesman Larry Crowson said.
According to ABC13, police said they tried to get inside.

Police said a worker managed to lock the door and keep them outside. Police said the group had left the child in the SUV.
Luckily, no one was injured. Police are continuing to look for the suspects.
No word on whether the restaurant has managed to get more chicken sandwiches.
