An Oklahoma man was arrested Friday for assault and battery, larceny and destruction of property after walking into an Arby's and taking food from behind the counter and harassing employees.
The man, identified as 36-year-old Dante Rashad Anderson, first walked into an Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, Carl's Jr. and demanded food. The employees were able to get Anderson to leave.
Anderson then went across the street to Arby's and did the same thing.
KOKH reported that the manager of the Arby's said Anderson jumped on the counter and screamed at the employees to give him food.
He then jumped off and allegedly grabbed the manager, pushing her toward a wall.
"I got bacon and chicken and I scared the lady," Anderson said to police, according to a report. "(The manager) thought I was going to hurt her, but I was not. I was just hungry and wanted some food. That is what I have to do to get food.
"I knew I was going to jail for doing this, but no one wants to help me out."
On the way out of the fast-food restaurant, police said Anderson reportedly broke a glass door and kicked several vehicles, damaging them.
KOCO reported that the police report said Anderson told police, "I am from planet Earth 2016 and am four years advanced on you, and you guys are always trying (to) kill me. On my planet Earth, everyone is dead and I walked here from there."
Anderson was taken to a local hospital to get his ankle examined before being booked in the Oklahoma County Jail.
