Iowa: the land of corn-fed common sense and Thomas C. Dailey, who should make the Smoking Gun for his boneheaded idiocy.
Police say a man got frustrated in a restaurant drive-through and rammed the vehicle in front of him Thursday night.
Thomas C. Daily, 25, of 4120 37th Ave. SW, was arrested on suspicion of operating while intoxicated, assault with a dangerous weapon and third-degree criminal mischief after the incident at Taco Bell, 555 33rd Ave. SW.
According to a police report, officers responded to the restaurant around 7 p.m. when employees called about a disturbance. Police learned that Krystle Fowler-Adney, 25, was waiting for her food at the drive-up window when her van was struck from behind by a pickup.
Then, according to police, Daily got out and yelled at Fowler-Adney and the restaurant employee at the window.
“He basically said, 'What are you waiting for? Christmas?'” Sergeant Cristy Hamblin said. “He had a few extra words in there.”
Daily returned to his pickup and proceeded to ram Fowler-Adney's van three more times, pushing it out of the way, police said. When police arrived, Daily was still waiting at the drive-up window.
“His food hadn't gotten there,” Hamblin said. “I think they were delaying it a little bit.”
