Anthony Moore, 21, of Maricopa, wanted to fight the employees of a fast-food restaurant Monday morning but he went to jail instead.

According to a Maricopa Police probable cause report, the manager of the McDonald’s restaurant on North John Wayne Parkway called police just before 10 a.m. The manager said there was a disruptive man in the restaurant who was trying to fight with employees.

“Once the male exited the store, the male grabbed a rock and threw it at the entrance door, shattering the door,” an officer wrote in the report.

One of the employees said the man who threw the rock was her ex-boyfriend. Employees said the man was yelling, “F— you, I am a gangster; you are afraid to call the police.”

The employees also told police the man was the driver of a black Lexus that was registered to Moore, who lived on West Alamendras in Maricopa. Officers located Moore at his home and promptly secured him in the back seat of a patrol car.

“During the ride back to the station, Anthony (Moore) stated, ‘I didn’t know the rock would break the glass.’ Once back at the police station, I asked Anthony if he was cursing at employees. Anthony stated he does not curse or get mad, he gets ‘paper.’ I asked what that meant, Anthony says he gets paid,” the report reads.

Moore was charged with criminal damage, disorderly conduct and driving while suspended. He was booked into the Pinal County Jail.
