Chick-fil-A Employee Accused of Robbing KFC After He Was Fired

Customers dine at a KFC restaurant in Beijing on July 24, 2013. China's state-run CCTV television network has reported in its consumer safety program that ice cubes from a KFC restaurant in the citys southern Chongwenmen district allegedly were found to have levels of bacteria 12 times higher than the toilet water. The company reportedly apologized to customers in a statement on its Sina Weibo account.

Fowl play

A former Chick-fil-A employee was arrested Wednesday after allegedly robbing a South Carolina KFC drive-thru at gunpoint.

A Chick-fil-A spokesperson told the Rock Hill Herald that 50-year-old Jeffrey Coley was fired June 18 after failing to show up for work two days in a row. According to an arrest warrant, Coley ran off with $516.02 from his former employer’s competitor. Talk about fowl play.

Coley has been charged with armed robbery, possession of a firearm during a violent crime, possession of methamphetamine, and failing to stop for a police car. A judge denied his bond, and Coley has officially been banned from entering a KFC.
