SOUTH UNION TOWNSHIP (KDKA) -A Fayette County man is facing numerous charges after going into a drunken rage at a fast food drive-through.

According to police, 29-year-old Timothy Braddee Jr. ordered food at the Arby’s on Morgantown Road in South Union Township around 10 p.m. Saturday.

When he pulled around to the pick-up window, he began bumping his SUV into the car in front of him and flashing his high beams.

The driver in front of him moved out of the way and contacted a store manager, allowing Braddee to pull up to the window.

The manager on duty told Braddee that he could not harass other customers. At that time, Braddee picked up a loaded rifle that he had in his car and pointed it at the manager and other employees before taking off.

A quick-thinking employee was able to run outside and get Braddee’s license plate number.

Police later found Braddee passed out at his home in Hopwood, where he was found to have a blood alcohol level of .191.

He was taken to the Fayette County Prison where he is being held on $20,000 bond.

The store manager said he was proud of his employees for staying calm and handling the situation appropriately.
