Dunkin' Donuts Employee Pistol-Whipped For Wrong Order

A Plantation man didn't get the coffee he ordered at a Dunkin' Donuts. So he responded by pistol whipping the drive-through worker while his wife egged him on and even urged him to shoot the clerk.

A reasonable enough response to having your order screwed up.

The beating was caught on surveillance video, which Lauderhill police released Wednesday.

Lauderdale police arrested Jeffrey Wright, 27, and his wife Alexis Longo, 19.

Wright was charged with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon, Longo was charged with simple battery.

The incident happened during lunchtime on Tuesday when, around 1:00 p.m., the couple made their order at the Dunkin' Donuts drive-through at 7125 W. Oakland Park Blvd. in Lauderhill, according to a police report.

When Longo was given the wrong order -- she wanted vanilla in her coffee, but got caramel instead -- the couple parked the car and went inside to complain.

And by "complain," we mean pistol whip a dude.

Wright and Longo entered the store and asked to speak to a manager. But before he could get to them, an argument broke out between the couple and the Dunkin' Donuts clerk who took their order.

According to the arrest report, Longo tried to hit the clerk. Wright then jumped in and a full-on fight busted out.

Meanwhile, other customers tried to intervene and break up the fight. That's when Wright pulled out his 9mm pistol and began to beat the clerk over the head with it. Longo allegedly began screaming, "Shoot him! Shoot him!" to her husband.

Police arrived on the scene and arrested the couple. Wright's bond was set at $20,000, whole Longo's was set at $1,000.

Also, according to police, Wright is a security guard and has a concealed weapons permit.
