Fast-food employee shoots at customers over argument about missing fries

HOUSTON, TX – A surveillance video has been made public by law enforcement, revealing a shocking incident that took place at a Houston Jack-in-the-Box drive-thru in March 2021. The video shows an employee of the fast-food chain firing shots at customers following a dispute over an incomplete order.

The incident involved Anthony Ramos, a Florida resident who was in Houston for work following the 2021 freeze. Ramos had just picked up his pregnant wife and young daughter from Bush Intercontinental Airport and decided to stop at a Jack-in-the-Box for a quick meal. The family’s order was taken by an employee named Alloniea Ford.

The situation escalated when Ramos noticed that an order of curly fries was missing from their meal. The video shows a heated exchange between Ramos, who was in his red pickup truck, and Ford. The argument continued for about nine minutes, with Ford leaving and returning to the drive-thru window multiple times.

At one point, Ford is seen pulling out a firearm from her pocket and then putting it back. Another employee tried to intervene and de-escalate the situation, but Ford continued to argue with Ramos. The confrontation intensified, with Ford throwing ketchup packets into Ramos’s truck and Ramos retaliating by throwing items back at her.

The video then shows Ford unlocking the drive-thru window, pulling out her firearm, and firing several shots at Ramos as he drove away. Luckily, none of the bullets hit Ramos’s vehicle, and no one was injured.

Ford was later convicted of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. Court documents indicate that her probation ended in June 2023. Meanwhile, Ramos’s family has filed a lawsuit against Jack in the Box.
