Cleveland Burger King employee held at gunpoint by an irate customer-for giving them a discount

A Cleveland Burger King employee was held at gunpoint by an irate customer — who didn’t like being given a $3 discount on his meal.

Howard Vernon, 38, was working the drive-thru Easter morning when an customer came through his lane, ordering two sausage egg and cheese croissants, a sausage biscuit and hash browns around 9 a.m., the employee told Cleveland 19.

The total came out to around $8, three dollars less than the normal cost due to the special running at the time.
