Man Accused of Causing Conflict over Unavailable Condiment

A Georgia man who was dining at a Waffle House on Tuesday has been accused of disorderly conduct after an alleged argument with the employees over the establishment’s lack of barbecue sauce.

When Willie Edward Drake went to a Waffle House in Macon for a meal in the early morning hours on January 23, he requested his server bring him an accompaniment of barbecue sauce with his order.

After being informed that the restaurant did not carry that condiment Drake allegedly became angered by the unavailability of the sauce. Three employees reportedly attempted to politely reason with him, but his frustration appeared to heighten.

Drake purportedly began yelling and swearing at the three women working, which they said resulted in making them and the customers so uncomfortable that they became afraid they might be in danger. Drake shouted “I’ll go to (expletive) jail over some barbecue sauce!” and the staff notified the local authorities.

When the police arrived they assessed that 43-year-old Drake was behaving in a disorderly manner, and they made his declaration that he would go to jail into a reality.

Drake was taken to the Bibb County Jail, and he was charged with disorderly conduct. Three days after his arrest he was released after posting $390 bond.
