A Georgia man who called police to complain about his cold fries quickly found himself back in jail when police discovered he was wanted on an outstanding warrant in connection with a murder count.
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that Antoine Sims, 24, called 911 to complain that employees at a Kennesaw, Ga. McDonald’s were refusing to fix his fast food order and asked him to call the restaurant for one leave confrontation.
When officers responded to the call, they overheard both Sims and an employee telling their side of the story.

However, bodycam footage taken by police and shared with the Journal-Constitution shows that Sims get visibly nervous when asked to come back to the restaurant and sign an acknowledgment of what happened. He is heard asking if he is under arrest.
“No, I’m scared of you all, I’ve just worked for three years,” he says.
One of the officers tells Sims that he will help him go through the paperwork.
“I know how to fill it in,” Sims replies. “Am I under arrest?”
“Yes, you are,” replies the officer.
“I called the police!” Sims yells back.
“Well, you shouldn’t do that if you have a search warrant,” the officer says.
From there, Sims can be seen sprinting away from the scene.

As police followed suit, Fox5 Atlanta reported, one of the officers looked up Sims’ last name in the police database and saw that there was a warrant out for his arrest.
According to WSB-TV in Atlanta, Sims is charged with murder in the death of a woman found in a burning car in 2018 but failed to show up for the court hearing.
According to the Charlotte Observer, Sims was one of three people charged in connection with the murder after he allegedly drove the dead women to a nearby sub-department and set the car on fire with her body after she was hit by gunfire, who broke out while buying marijuana from Sims.
WSB-TV reports that after the fast-food incident, police chased Sims by car for about 20 minutes before locating him in the parking lot of a nearby apartment complex. One of the officers uses a stun gun that incapacitates Sims and sends him to the ground.
According to Fox5, Sims was traveling on a $275,000 bond issued in February and was due to file a final pleading on July 26, but never showed up. When he was last arrested, he was wearing a surveillance cuff on his ankle.
Police told the media that they also found marijuana in Sims’ car, which was ready to be distributed.
He was sent to the Cobb County Jail before being extradited to the Fulton County Jail.
It’s the second time this month that cold fries have sparked an altercation at McDonald’s.
