Man Stabbed At McDonalds Drive-Thru

Fast food apparently wasn't fast enough for one man in Rocky Mount -- as he tried to stab his way to the head of the line at a drive-thru.

It happened Tuesday night at the McDonalds on Wesleyan Boulevard.

Jarvis McNeil told police that the man behind him in the drive-thru got out of his car and started to yell at him to get out of the way. The two began to argue and the man started to punch McNeil. The victim says then the man then pulled out a knife and cut him under his left eye. The man also showed McNeil that he was armed with a gun.

Police say the attacker then drove off towards the Big Lots parking lot, apparently without getting his burger and fries. McNeil refused medical treatment.

The attacker is described as a black man in his 30's, 5'11" tall, weighing 170 pounds, medium build, has long braids. Police say he was wearing a green jacket and blue jeans, driving a 1990's burgundy Honda Civic.

    Maybe we should put this moron in line behind those fast food order rapping idiots in Utah, with all those dolts who thought that incident was no big deal between them.

    "This whole thing could have been prevented if people would stay focused on getting their food and getting out of the way." Err, I agree that standing in line behind someone who is unprepared can be annoying, but it in NO way is to be blamed for this. Kinda like blaming a woman for being raped for what she was wearing, or lack thereof. Maybe something else was going on, maybe someone up further in line was rude to the guy, but mere words NEVER justify the use of deadly force. And yes, this is why I carry a gun as well, and practice with it REGULARLY. I pray to God I never have to use it; but I'd rather have it and not need it then need it and not have it. I've got fire extinguishers in my kitchen and garage - same deal. Best bet is to always be observant of what is going on around you, and not look totally clueless (an easy mark). If something doesn't seem right, leave and call the cops if it seems bad enough, whether you are armed or not.

    MLK Jr. said "Judge a man by his character" - - - No character, but probably full of drugs. One day, the crackers will crumble and all hell is going to break loose. The crack on the street will be the crack of the guns of the citizens taking their streets back.

    Some people can control their tempers better than others. The stabber was obviously insecure with himself if he had to use a weapon to try to make a point. He wasn't in his right mind. He couldn't have thought about what the outcome would be. But the guy in the front may have been being a jerk. Still no excuse. But if I ticked someone off, I would roll up my window and lock the doors. Most of the time I go inside the restaurant. Service is usually a lot quicker inside than at a drive thru.

    To Cactus - Your exactly right. Americans have gotten more stupid by the day. You will never fix stupid people no matter how hard you try. Its politically correct to cater to the idiots today. NOT ME! You are SO RIGHT!

    Ive felt like giving the cars in front of me a big push but never even THINK of doing something as STUPID as that idiot.

    If you go through the drive through, stay off the cell phone, know what you want at the speaker, and have your money ready at the window. This whole thing could have been prevented if people would stay focused on getting their food and getting out of the way. Some people get really short tempered when they are hungry. The victim probably was holding up the line, which should is sinful when you're in front of a hungry man.

    I'll bet you 50 cent to a dollar that the great NAACP, Al, and Jessie will not help bring this man to justice. NAACP HELP YOUR PEOPLE rather than sue Wayne County for your peoples lack of education. But yet you still do nothing, WHY? The only thing you want to do is blame the WHITE man.

    I don't know if these two had a history or not. I do know that every week that goes by more and more law abiding citizens are taking concealed carry courses and because NC is a "shall issue" state, everyone without a criminal history can receive a permit to carry. Some county sheriff depts. are being overwhelmed with applications. What this means is that in the very near future the criminals on our streets will be much more likely to confront someone that will defend themselves rather than cower and grovel at their feet. I think there will be a rude awakening for many of these individuals, however, when they're lying on the asphalt with two or three large caliber rounds inside them, bleeding out, it will be a little too late.
