(Newser) – A Missouri man thought a shotgun would help cure his and his wife's McDonald's craving—and ended up in jail. Chris Brooks Heuring became angry when he pulled up to a McDonald's at 11:40 pm Saturday only to be told they were closed. He ordered an employee to open the window, then produced a loaded shotgun and said, "If I don't bring some food home for my wife, she's going to kill me," the Southeast Missourian reports. Employees locked themselves in a room and called the cops, who charged Heuring with DWI and unlawful use of a weapon.
