‪"Fuck you nigger. Go back to Africa," Man Pulls Gun On Restaurant Employee For Wrong Taco Order

A man is accused of using racial slurs and threatening to shoot a Filiberto's manager over a mistake on his food order.

Court records show that on Nov. 13, Beau Jeff Norton, 35, ordered food to-go but later returned to the location near 83rd Avenue and Thunderbird Road after discovering his meal was wrong.

Norton allegedly approached the drive-thru window and confronted an employee about his order. The manager came to the window and told Norton he would fix the order and bring it outside to him.

The manager told police that he went outside with the new food order and was confronted by Norton who was yelling racial slurs at him.

The manager, who is half black and half Hispanic, told police that he went to give the 35-year-old new food when Norton began saying "F--k you n----r ... Go back to Mexico. Go back to Africa."

According to police, Norton became increasingly hostile and he pointed a handgun about four inches from his face.

A woman in Norton's truck pleaded with him to stop, but instead, Norton reportedly said to the victim, "I'll shoot you where you stand," court paperwork said.

After throwing the food on the ground, Norton left in his truck, but that wasn't the last time the victim would hear from Norton.

He called the Filiberto's saying he held, "a very high position at his job and he would be calling the Filiberto's manager in the morning."

The manager gave police the phone number from the call and the license plate number from the truck which police used to identify Norton. 

Police also say Norton was arrested in 2011 for a similar incident where he pointed a gun at a group of people at a bar patio at the same intersection. At that time he reportedly asked, "Who was laughing at me?"

Norton was arrested last Thursday and has been charged with aggravated assault.
