Cold onion rings led to an attack involving a switchblade and Taser at a New Mexico Burger King, alleges a customer.

Robert DeYapp filed a lawsuit against the fast-food franchise last week after he said the manager Francisco Berrera tried to attack him after he asked for his onion rings to be heated up, reports Courthouse News Service.

The incident occurred at the restaurant in Bloomfield, N.M., on June 7, 2013, the lawsuit states.  

Berrera took the onion rings back and told a co-worker in Spanish: “This white boy is mad about his food, and he doesn’t even know that I’m going to return it and do whatever I want to it, and he’ll still eat it and never have any idea of what I did to his food,” the lawsuit states.

But DeYapp understood what the manager said and asked for a refund, which Berrera refused, the lawsuit states.

The customer then claims Berrera took pictures of him and his vehicle as he finished his meal. When DeYapp asked Berrera what he was doing, the manager “came around the counter and began lunging at Mr. DeYapp with a Taser in one hand and a switchblade knife in the other hand,” the lawsuit states.

Police arrested Berrera, who pleaded guilty to felony assault with a deadly weapon, the lawsuit states, but it does not specify when.

DeYapp, was not injured, but seeks punitive damages for assault, and negligent hiring and training.

A call placed to DeYapp’s attorney was not returned. A Burger King spokesman said the company does not comment on active litigation. Follow on Twitter @joelzlandau

  1. Anyone who uses the expression “white boy” is a racist piece of trash who needs his head opened up with a Louisville slugger. It’s no different than calling someone a “nigger”, and it deserves the same response.

    I’m tired of the double standard, and I’m especially tired of the assumption that only white people can be racist, especially when it’s obvious that white people are the most racially tolerant people in our society, and the actual racism is almost exclusively practiced by “minorities”.

    Defend you white heritage. White people have the entire civilized world to be proud of, and shouldn’t allow their glorious history to be tarnished or diminished by Zionist propaganda.
