Drive-through road rage case skips hearing | Crime
A man who is accused of getting hot-headed while in the drive-through lane at a Stillwater McDonald's has waived his right to a hearing.
Police were called to the fast food restaurant in September of 2010 after a man cut in front of people in the drive-through lane and pointed a gun at them.
Witnesses say a man ordered at one of the teller stations and pulled in front of another customer where the lanes merge. The other customer honked his horn as the man pulled in front of him. The man then made an obscene gesture and both parties got out of their vehicles.
The man then left and drove parallel to the drive-through lane. At that time, he rolled down the window and pointed a gun at the people in the other vehicle.
Police arrested Charles Clinton Jacques, 24, for the incident and charged him with feloniously pointing a firearm.
Jacques recently waived his right to a preliminary hearing, and is now scheduled to enter a plea on May 24, 2011.
