People Pulled Guns and Rushed Popeyes After Being Denied Its Sold-Out Chicken Sandwiches

Popeyes' new chicken sandwich is hard to find, and some people are getting impatient. 

By The Feast Staff

In case you missed it, Popeyes chicken sandwich is having a moment. Laden with pickles and sandwiched in a brioche bun, the new menu item has caused quite a stir — and it's sold out in most locations. This last bit of news isn't going over well with some people, to say the least. 

On Monday evening, a group of armed people allegedly tried to rush into a Houston location of Popeyes in an attempt to get the sandwiches. Employees of the eatery told ABC13 that the incensed group included two women, three men, and even a baby.

Apparently, the group had been told at the drive-through that the chicken sandwiches were sold out. That's when they attempted to rush into the restaurant with a gun, and try their luck again, police say.

Luckily, quick-acting employees were able to lock the store before the group could enter, and there were no injuries. 

Police are still looking for the would-be assailants, anyone with information is asked to contact Houston police.
