    TOWN OF NIAGARA - A man with an assault rifle threatened a convenience store clerk who wouldn't sell him a bag of Doritos Wednesday, town police said.
    Police Chief James Suitor said a man entered the A Plus Mini Mart Sunoco at the intersection of Porter/Packard and Military roads at 5:15 a.m. and tried to buy the snack food with a $100 bill.

    The clerk told him she couldn't make change, and said that the man went to his truck and returned with an assault rifle. She pushed the silent alarm and police arrested the man without incident.

    Suitor said the man made no demands, but that the clerk felt threatened.

    Jeremy Logan, 29, of Third Street, Niagara Falls was charged with menacing, disorderly conduct and driving while intoxicated. Other charges may be added after a meeting with the district attorney, Suitor said.

    Logan was ordered held in Niagara County Jail on $1,000 bail.

    Yes.
    An assault rifle.
    I'm sure it would have sprayed bullets everywhere if the police hadn't saved the day in time.

    When I read the title, I thought it meant "100 billion dollars". Like... the clerk wouldn't sell chips to Bill Gates or something. heh.

    That about sums it up. The guy has anger issues big time. I think grabbing an assualt rifle in those circumstances is the definition of "unstable".

    Yep, I looked it up and that is the definition all right.

    Maybe it actually happened in the town of VIAGRA and the guy was just really happy to see him????

    What's society coming to these days? It's getting to where you can't even get quality crooks?

    I would've just started adding bags of Doritos to the counter until the clerk could make change. 100 bags of Doritos is better than none.

    Maybe this is one of the guys talked about over in the copper Chore Boy thread cause that is some serious munchies lol. Though I agree with the clerk a bit, when you can't make change you can't make change and guys wanting to buy two dollars worth of stuff with a hundred dollar bill friggin annoyed me when I worked at a gas station.

    That said I bet it was a friggin hopped up bb gun on steriods. Assult Rifle my as....

    I wonder if anyone has checked to see if the $100 is legit?:scrutiny: I get people frequently wanting to buy a cup of coffee with a $50 Or $100 and it is always first thing in the morning when there isn't much change and the bank doesn't open until 9.

    I grew up a hop, skip and a jump from that intersection. I'll see if I can scare up more details.

    Look like somebody missed a few hugs and nap time as a child...

    All stores need a panic button to lock the doors, and a full auto 10/22 behind the register(banana clips)....Best part is the punk would probably live to see trial, and after being razzed by a few .22 at around 11oorpm, he will wish he was dead..:)

    Two words frrrrr, frrrr. 20 or so .22 caliber rounds to center mass should make the munchies go away:evil:!

    This just in. The guy was a law-abiding gun owner and it was an AR project gun he had 1200 bucks invested in? George Strait and I also have some ocean front property in Arizona, and if you'll buy that, we'll throw the Golden Gate in free.

    Anyone got a dollar on criminal record and an SKS? :D

    Just my opinion,

    But it was probably a counterfeit bill and the perp figured he needed the cash now, so outright robbery will do when you can't get cash from passing funny money.

    Doritos, Truck, Drunk, Gun? Sounds like a very bad CW song, but it's just another idiot that needs to be taken out of the gene pool. :banghead:

    I noticed the man hasn't *yet* been charged with any crime regarding the gun. The article says he also made no demands, but the clerk "felt threatened". Now, if I told osmeone no and they went out to their car and came back in with a gun, i'd feel threatened and call the cops too - but I don't know that any law was broken if the firearm was not displayed in a threatening manner. I mean, some states have harsh brandishing laws, but I'm not sure that would apply here. I think we can all agree, however, that he acted as a moron.
