A Dunkin’ Donuts worker was pistol-whipped by a Florida man after a botched coffee order sent the brute and his wife into a fit inside the store, cops said.
The violence unfolded after the worker, Rajay Hall, gave the couple – Jeffrey Wright, 27, and Alexis Longo, 22 – the wrong flavor coffee when they pulled up in the drive-thru of the Lauderhill restaurant about 1 p.m. Tuesday, NBC Miami reported.
The enraged couple walked into the store and demanded Hall make them a fresh cup of coffee – but he said they wouldn’t tell him how they wanted it.
“I asked them what do they want in the coffee,” Hall told the news station. “She was like, ‘I don’t know – just make back the coffee.’ She was cursing at me.”
Suddenly, the couple pounced and Wright began punching Hall as a manager tried to intervene.
During the wild brawl, Wright started smashing Hall in the head with a loaded Taurus Slim .9-mm handgun, which he pulled out of his waistband.
As Wright – a security guard licensed to carry the pistol – pummeled the worker, Longo urged her husband to pull the trigger.
“Several (witnesses) do indicate that the wife did mention that he should shoot the actual manager,” Lauderhill Police spokesman Lt. Mike Butkus told NBC.
Cops soon arrived and broke up the fight.
Wright was booked on charges that include aggravated battery with a deadly weapon. He was ordered held in lieu of $20,000 bond after his arraignment Wednesday.
His wife was charged with battery and was ordered held in lieu of $1,000 bond, records show.
