Dispute Over Curly Fries Leads to Employee Firing Gun at Customers’ Car

A video recently released as part of a court case reveals a dispute over curly fries at a Houston Jack-In-The-Box that escalated into an employee firing a gun at a customer’s car. In March 2021, Anthony Ramos, his then-pregnant wife Jeraldin Ospina, and their 6-year-old daughter visited the fast-food restaurant with the intention of ordering lunch with a side of curly fries. However, when the fries were missing from their order, Ramos approached employee Alonniea Ford, who allegedly refused to fulfill the purchase.

According to court records from a lawsuit related to the incident, Ford began cursing at the family and told them to leave when they requested to speak with a manager. In response, the family argued back, prompting Ford to throw packets of ketchup, ice, and other items at their car. The video evidence shows Ford retrieving a gun and firing it at the family’s car as they drove away.

Ford was subsequently arrested and initially charged with deadly conduct with a firearm. The charge was later reduced to aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, to which she pleaded guilty in June 2022. Randall Kallinen, the family’s lawyer, expressed concern over the incident and called for background checks on employees to prevent similar situations in the future.

The incident took place at a Jack-In-The-Box restaurant in Houston, Texas.
