Police are looking for a man who allegedly struck a motorcyclist near a Whataburger in Waco, Texas on March 28.

Authorities said in a statement that the driver of an SUV and the motorcyclist began arguing over someone taking too long to place an order at the drive-thru of the fast food restaurant on N. Valley Mills Drive.

The suspect, whose photo has been released by police, then followed the motorcyclist and allegedly hit the bike, injuring and knocking the motorcyclist to the ground. The driver then fled the scene.

The man appeared to be driving a green Ford Explorer with a roof rack and tinted windows, police said.

More Anger at the Drive-Thru

Long waits at drive-thrus have caused other customers to become violent in the past.

In a similar case in December, McDonald’s customer Joshua Emery Noel from South Carolina became impatient while waiting for his french fries. Noel then allegedly took it out on a young employee by throwing hot coffee at her face, reported Fox News. He then fled the scene before police arrived.

Noel eventually turned himself in at the Camden Police Department on Jan. 16, and he admitted to throwing the beverage on the fast food chain staff.

He was then booked at the Kershaw County Detention Center and given a $7,500 cash surety bond.

In another case in 2017, an Ohio customer received an earful from a Burger King manager for taking too long to order. The incident was filmed on camera.

Lizzie Ramsey told WSYZ that she was trying to order food for her husband, her husband’s co-worker, and two young boys when problems started at the drive-thru. The employee offered Ramsey the total three times before she could finish her order and even told her to “hurry up,” despite the fact there were no other cars waiting in line.

Ramsey and the other occupants in the car then went inside the restaurant and were surprised to learn that the person they spoke to was a manager.

They started recording the manager when she started cursing and threatening to call the police, the news station reported. Ramsey then posted the video to social media.

“When we uploaded the video, people saw it and said ‘we had the same experience with the same person at the same store,'” Ramsey’s husband told the news station.

Ramsey and her husband then made a complaint to the corporate office, which apologized and gave them a gift card.
