NY Post Willie Edward Drake, 43, of Columbus, was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct for the Tuesday incident, according to the Macon Telegraph. Employees at the local Waffle House had tried explaining as nicely as they could to him that they didn’t carry the brown stuff, but he wasn’t having it.“I’ll go to (expletive) jail over some barbecue sauce!” Drake told them. And that’s exactly what happened. After “screaming obscenities and insulting” the staff, which included three women, the cops were called and Drake was taken into custody for acting “uncooperative and disorderly,” the Telegraph reports. Workers said his threats ultimately caused them and the customers to “fear for their safety.” Drake was jailed later that night and held on $390 bond. He was still locked up on Friday.
Nobody could ever say that Edward Drake is not a man of his word. When Edward Drake walks into a Waffle House and you don’t deliver on BBQ sauce and he says “I’ll go to jail over some BBQ sauce” you better believe that he will follow through with that threat. That’s just the kind of stand up guy Edward Drake is and to be honest with y’all, I don’t blame Edward one bit. What kind of restaurant that alleges that they want respect from the public thinks the right way to go about business is not to have BBQ sauce on the grounds? The answer is the worst kind of restaurant. Don’t tell me that their menu doesn’t call for BBQ sauce because even the quickest glance at it can determine that their are plenty of items where BBQ sauce would be an excellent addition.
We got burgers, fries and chicken sandwiches so not having any BBQ sauce on-site is completely inappropriate. So it’s ridiculous that old Ed here was denied the sauce. If anything, Waffle House should be giving this guy free BBQ sauce for life, not call the cops because he was screaming obscenities and insulting the staff. It be like going to a bank and being told that they didn’t carry money. Exactly the same situation. Maybe Don the president can pardon him or something or at the very least get him a bottle of Sweet Baby Rays.
