(Newser) – The McDonald's employees who bravely held up the order of an armed and dangerous customer could be in line for a big payday. Police were able to catch up with alleged "Facebook killer" Steve Stephens after drive-thru workers at the Erie, Pa., McDonald's recognized him Tuesday morning and tried to stall him, meaning the workers could be in line for the $50,000 reward offered by the FBI, ATF, and US Marshals Service for the arrest of the fugitive, TMZ reports. Stephens, on the run after allegedly killing an elderly man in Cleveland, wasn't arrested: He shot and killed himself after a police chase, but law enforcement officials say there's still a very good chance that the workers could get the reward.
