Man charged with felony robbery after pouring $1.49 worth of McDonald’s soda into water cup



A McDonald’s manager begged the police for help when teenagers said they only wanted glasses for water but were getting soda with the water cups instead.

According to a police report sent to 40/29 News, Cody Morris, 18, was arrested on a felony robbery charge for stealing a large cup of soda from an Arkansas McDonald’s.

The report says that the McDonald’s manager watched as three people drove through the drive thru ordering three large cups of water. The people then parked, came inside, dumped out their water and filled the cups with soda. The manager told the individuals to return the sodas. Two did, but Morris would not.


The manager then followed Morris to the parking lot and stood behind his car to try to prevent Morris from driving off. Morris allegedly ignored him and reversed hitting the manager. The manager then reached into Morris’s car attempting to wrestle the keys from Morris’s ignition when Morris hit him on the hand and the vehicle hit him again.

Springdale, Arkansas has a lower violent crime rate and property crime rate than Arkansas in general. The cost of a large soda at McDonald’s, which carries with it unlimited refills, is $1.49. McDonald’s also announced Monday that it would have all-you-can-eat french fries to all customers at select locations.

There are questions as to whether Kanye West is running a "spoiler" bid for president to help re-elect his friend, Donald Trump, according to a new report by The New York Times.

"At least four people who have been active in Republican politics are linked to Kanye West’s attempt to get on the presidential ballot this year. The connection raises questions about the aims of the entertainer’s effort and whether it is regarded within the G.O.P. as a spoiler campaign that could aid President Trump, even as those close to Mr. West have expressed concerns about his mental health as he enters the political arena," the newspaper reported.
