Illinois Man Strips Naked Because of Closed Burger King
As reactions go, this one seems to be a little over-the-top. But, we've all been there, amirite?
Okay, it's possible that I'm wrong. Maybe everyone hasn't been so angered over the fact that their restaurant of choice was closed that they needed to...uh...air things out.
From Fox News:
An intoxicated Illinois man became enraged by Burger King’s hours and stripped off his clothes in the street before striking a cop a few times, police said.
Manuel Silverio of Plainfeild, Ill., had tried to patron the hamburger chain around 2 in the morning on Sunday. According to the fast food restaurant’s website, it closes at 12 am.
"He was visibly upset the business was closed and was banging on the drive-thru, screaming at the employees inside," Deputy Police Chief Eric Allen said to The Herald News. "He was heavily intoxicated."
Burger King employees at the restaurant in Shorewood called the cops at around 2:15am because they said the drunken man was getting violent. When police arrived at the scene, Silverio banged on the window again before taking off his pants, then put them back on again.
This is when Silverio's behavior got him in deeper trouble:
After determining no property had been damaged and no one was injured, the police contacted one of Silverio’s relatives to pick him up, the news site reported. However, after a police sergeant tried to help the man put his shirt back on, Silverio hit him.
The officers handcuffed Silverio and sat him on the curb to calm down, Allen confirmed to the media outlet.
Once Silverio calmed down, the officer took off the handcuffs. Silverio then reportedly hit the officer in the face and again in the chest.
Silverio was arrested and charged with public indecency, resisting a police officer and aggravated battery.
This is far from the first time that Burger King has had a "clothing optional" problem:
