Jeremy Combs - Jailed After Threatening Taco Bell Employee With Shotgun For Forgetting His Hot Sauce

Lee's Summit, Mo (The Weekly Vice) - Jeremy Combs, a 30-year-old Missouri man was jailed after he allegedly returned to a Taco Bell with a shotgun after an employee failed to include hot sauce with his order.

According to Lee's Summit Police, officers were called to a local Taco Bell at about 11:30 p.m. after store employees reported that an irate man had pulled up to the drive-thru window with a shotgun.

The employee stated that the suspect, later identified as Combs, had placed an order earlier in the evening. He then returned to the store a short time later, angry because he hadn't received hot sauce as expected.

When Combs got to the window, he handed his food back to the employee, reached for a loaded shotgun and threatened the employee with it.

Combs then fled the scene in a blue and silver Ford F-150. The employee told police that the suspect appeared to be intoxicated, and gave them a description his vehicle.

Investigators found Combs intoxicated at his aunt's residence nearly two hours after the incident. Combs initially denied threatening store employees with a shotgun, and instead insisted that he had used a tire iron.

When police informed Combs that the incident had been captured by the store's surveillance camera, he reportedly changed his story and admitted to bringing the shotgun.

A search of the residence netted police a Mossberg shotgun that had been hidden under a mattress. The shotgun contained live rounds of ammunition and did not have a serial number. Combs told police that he had purchased the gun from an acquaintance he met at a drug house in Independence, Missouri.

Combs was booked into jail and charged with armed assault. He is scheduled for a detention hearing tomorrow in federal court in Kansas City.

Court records show that Combs has a lengthy criminal history, including 14 felony arrests and three felony convictions including first-degree assault and armed criminal action.
