( – In March 2021, a Jack-in-the-Box employee opened fire on a customer who was using the drive-thru. The video from the incident has now been released by the customer’s family lawyer, according to Fox News.

According to a report from FOX 26 Houston, Anthony Ramos went to the airport to pick up his pregnant wife and daughter. They then proceeded to go to the Jack-in-the-Box drive-thru where they met Alloniea Ford, who was working at the window.

After Ford gave them the food, Ramos pointed out that there was a missing portion of curly fries. However, the employee refused to give the family the fries. This led to a verbal argument between the two.

A close to 23-minute surveillance footage clip from the incident was released this past week. At some point during the video, Ford left the video frame but continued to argue with the man after coming back.

Around nine minutes into the altercation, Ford took a firearm from her pocket and then put it back. One of the other employees attempted to de-escalate the situation. However, Ford came back and continued to argue with Ramos more intensely.

She proceeded to throw some ketchup packs at Ramos’s truck, who in retaliation started throwing them back. A different employee then closed the drive-thru window, however, Ford unlocked it and opened it again while grabbing her firearm and opening fire at Ramos. The bullets did not hit Ramos or his vehicle.

Following the incident Ford was convicted of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
