Three Dunkin’ employees in El Paso, Texas, were arrested for allegedly threatening a customer with handguns during a dispute at the 9114 Dyer Street location.
The incident occurred when a 41-year-old customer and his girlfriend sought to place a food order but encountered rude behavior from an employee.
Requesting to speak with the manager escalated the situation, leading to the employee, along with two colleagues, displaying handguns.
The 41-year-old customer was reportedly threatened with a loaded weapon, with one of the employees stating, “ya’ll gonna die tonight.”
Jesus Dominguez (17), Luis Arturo Dominguez (20), and Elijah Richard Garcia (19) were arrested, charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, and each issued a $100,000 bond.
Dunkin’ responded by confirming the termination of the involved employees and expressing awareness of the incident.
