Georgia police recently got more than they bargained for after responding to a 9-1-1 call regarding a dispute over cold McDonald’s fries.
In a strange twist of fate, 24-year-old Antoine Sims was arrested in connection with the murder of a woman after calling 9-1-1 following a verbal argument between himself and the franchise owner over the cold french fries.
According to an incident report, Sims was served cold fries at a McDonald’s on Cobb Parkway in Kennesaw when the fight broke out.
When officers arrived at the restaurant to settle the “business dispute” on August 5, they were told by Sims that the fries’ temperature was not to his liking.
“I try the fries … the fries, they’re lukewarm but they’re not hot,” he told responding officers.
When he asked for a new order of fries, the franchise owner rejected him, which led to a heated argument.
According to the owner, Sims told him: “you better give me f—king fresh fries, motherf—ker.” He then claimed that Sims “shoved” his food and drink at him.
Officers then searched Sims’ name in their database and discovered he was out on bond with an active warrant for his arrest after missing his court date.
The warrant was in connection to the 2018 murder of a woman — Adelisa Murtatovic — in Fulton County, who was found dead inside a burning car. Sims was accused of setting fire to the car along with two others after a drug deal led to a gunfight.
It was also clear to those present that Sims was out on bond or probation as he was wearing an ankle bracelet.
“I mean, dude’s obviously on probation, got an ankle bracelet on,” an unnamed worker stated.
When officers attempted to get Sims to sign an acknowledgement, he became nervous and asked if he was under arrest.
“No, I’m afraid of y’all, I just did three years,” Sims said after he refused to sign the document.
Police body camera footage then showed Sims flee from officers, who chased him to a nearby apartment complex, where they Tasered him and put him in custody.
As for why a person would call police with an active warrant out for their arrest is anybody’s guess.
“It’s very unusual that someone, knowing he is wanted by police, would call the police, but Mr. Sims did that,” Officer David Buchanan told Fox News.
At the time of Sims’ arrest, police also found 31 grams of marijuana in his fiancee’s car. He was later charged with possession of a controlled substance with intent to distribute.
As of August 11, Sims was being held without bond at Cobb County Adult Detention Center.
