He became angrier and is seen on surveillance video banging the pliers on the front counter. Credit then knocked one of the stores cash registers off the counter while continuing to threaten employees.

But wait, there’s more. In a scene that’s more and more core common in America, Credit then jumped up on the service counter and became even more enraged.

As the situation grew more violent, the manager used the drive thru headset to notify a customer in the drive thru lane of the situation and to please call the police.

In order to calm the situation down, the manager gave credit some free food in the hopes he would go away.

Instead of leaving the store with his meal, Credit went into the men’s room stall to eat his free whopper and fries. When police arrived, they were pointed in the direction of the men’s room. Police entered the men’s room and ordered Credit to out of the stall. Fortunately, Credit complied and exited the stall without further incident, and no law enforcement officers, customers, or Burger King employees were injured

Credit was arrested for robbery with a deadly weapon of less than $750 and transported to the Hillsborough County jail were Hillsborough County Judge Scott set Hubert Lee Credit Jr’s bond at $15,500.

It looks like that free food was pretty expensive.
