Flagler County Sheriff's Office deputies responded to a call from the McDonald's off Belle Terre Parkway early the morning of Monday, Sept. 9, in reference to a disturbance with weapons.

The man working at the drive-thru window called dispatch and stated that two customers displayed a firearm in a threatening manner from inside of their vehicle, a gray Ford sedan, after complaining that their food was cold. The customers demanded that the order be remade and told the employee that they “do not play” when it comes to their food while waving a handgun toward him. The employee
remained calm and told the men that he would remake the order. He then went to the back of the restaurant and called 911.

Deputies quickly arrived on-scene and conducted a felony traffic stop on the vehicle, which was still parked in front of the drive-thru window. The driver, 20-year-old Jawan Davis, and passenger, 20-year-old Jordon
Dunn, were arrested and taken into custody.

Within plain view in the vehicle, deputies located a Springfield handgun, a small bag of marijuana, and a silver and black BB gun. Further investigation revealed that the handgun was reported stolen out of St. Johns County.

When questioned, Davis told deputies that he and Dunn were only joking with the employee when they showed him the firearm, but that they were not happy with the food being cold.

“This is a story that could have had a very different outcome,” Sheriff Rick Staly said. “This employee kept his cool and did the right thing by calling us. Thanks to his actions and the quick response from our deputies, no one was injured. These guys were driving around looking for trouble and they got it. ”

Both suspects were taken to the Flagler County Jail. They were charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, among other charges. They are being held without bond.
