DoorDash Driver Vowed to ‘Execute Everyone’ After McDonald’s Happy Meal Dispute: Police

A dispute over Happy Meals led a DoorDash driver to threaten to “execute everyone” in a McDonald’s restaurant in Stafford County, Virginia on Sunday, according to police.

James Springer, a 36-year-old DoorDash driver, was arrested after reportedly making threats to multiple people throughout the day. At 9:57 am on Sunday, Deputy T.M. Givler of the Stafford County Sheriff’s office responded to a call from a McDonald’s located at 2862 Jefferson Davis Highway in Aquia, police said.

McDonald’s staffers reported that the DoorDash driver became “agitated” after attempting to order one or more Happy Meals and being told he couldn’t order from the breakfast menu. He allegedly told workers he would come back and “execute everyone” then left in a white Toyota sedan.

Soon after the incident, police were still attempting to identify the suspect when they received a call from a female driver who said that someone driving a white Toyota Yaris brandished a gun at her as they were passing Garrisonville Road on I-95.

Another victim approached police to report that a man driving a white Toyota sedan had threatened him “with a black gun.”

“This victim relayed he was parked at Panera Bread when the suspect drove into the lot in a white Toyota sedan,” read a statement shared by the Stafford County Sheriff Office to Facebook.

It added: “Without any known provocation, the suspect raised a black handgun, racked the slide and pointed it at the victim. The suspect then lowered the gun and drove away. The victim reported he recognized the suspect as a DoorDash driver, but did not know his name.”

Then, the McDonald’s in Aquia called police to report that the suspect had returned with a gun.

According to police, he had used “abusive and threatening language toward a customer” this time.

Deputy S.M. Eastman took the suspect into custody “without incident.”

Deputies say they found a black BB gun inside the white Toyota Yaris that was identified as Springer’s vehicle.

Springer “incorrectly believed recent decriminalization efforts made it legal to point BB guns at people,” police said.

It was not clear if Springer was attempting to order the Happy Meal for himself or a customer. DoorDash told Fox5 they deactivated his driver account.

Springer is now facing charges of disorderly conduct, abusive language and four counts of brandishing. He is being held at the Rappahannock Regional Jail on a $1,500 bond.

Newsweek reached out to the Stafford County Sheriff’s Office for comment.

Delivery Driver Breaks Down in Tears After Driving an Hour for $1 Tip

Delivery Driver Breaks Down in Tears After Driving an Hour for $1 Tip

A now-viral TikTok sparked fierce debate after an app-based delivery driver used the platform to share his struggle to earn a livable wage.

The video, posted to the platform last week, begins with TikTok user Smithson Michael, known as @deliveryguy100, sitting in his car, his face visibly stained with tears.

“Y’all, I wish people knew what it was like to deliver for UberEats, Postmates, Doordash, all these companies,” he says. “I just spent an hour driving around for a $1.19 tip. I mean, would it hurt y’all to…throw us $5?” He wipes tears from his eyes as he speaks.

He goes on to reveal that from the app, he only earned $2 from the delivery—making his total pay for an hour of work just above the $3 mark. “What’s that?” he asks. “That’s not even enough to cover gas. How am I supposed to survive like that?”

According to his previous videos, Michael is an unhoused veteran and aspiring musician. He has reportedly been recording music using his phone while hoping to raise enough money to buy an acoustic guitar.

He elaborates on his situation in his vulnerable TikTok clip: “Homeless—I’m there. This, that I’m sitting in [his car]—it’s gone. Four months behind. There’s no way I can pay for that. Everything fell apart on me. I haven’t been able to sustain myself, to provide for myself. And these are essential services.”

The video has blown up since it was posted four days ago, with over 822,000 views and over 160,000 likes. And, in the comments section, viewers are engaging in a heated discussion over the necessity of tipping, especially in the wake of corporations that pay their workers unlivable wages.

Many agreed simply that the $1.19 tip was unacceptable. “$5 should be the minimum!” wrote one TikToker. “I tip more if the food isn’t local as well.”

“How do people not tip??? I always make sure I give at least 20%,” added another.

However, several others pointed out that while tipping is important, the anger and frustration that many feel over low wages should be directed towards the companies, rather than consumers.

“Why does the burden always fall on consumers instead of these corporations? I really don’t get America’s culture,” wrote one commenter.

Another commented that “these companies are exploiting [delivery workers] and they need to be regulated.”

On Sunday, Michael posted an update to his secondary TikTok account, thanking “everyone around the world” for their support.

In the update video, he adds that he agrees with many of his commenters that the issue, ultimately, stems from the practices of the large corporations that run these delivery apps. “This is a very tough topic…I just wanted to stress the importance of the fact that it is on the delivery services, and not the individuals that are being delivered to,” he says.

While the conversation is far from over, he ends the video on an uplifting note: “I’ll be able to get on my feet soon, the way this is going. So, this is all amazing. Thank you so much.”

“We’re not done yet.”
