ARKANSAS — An Arkansas teenager faces a felony robbery charge, after he allegedly put soda in a water cup at McDonald’s — and refused to give the soda back.

The accused is 18-year-old Cody Morris.

Officials say Morris and two of his friends ordered three waters in the drive thru at a McDonald’s restaurant.

Then, they went into the restaurant, dumped out the water, and refilled their cups with soda.

The McDonald’s manager told them to return the soda. Officials say two of the teens did so, but Morris did not.

The McDonald’s manager tried to stop the teens from leaving the restaurant, but says they struck him with their car and drove away.

Police officers eventually caught up to the teens and arrested Morris, who they said was driving the getaway vehicle.

Morris was taken to jail, and charged with felony robbery.

A hearing has been scheduled for Friday morning, April 22nd.
