Subway employee sparks controversy with response to customer's 'disrespectful' alleged sandwich orde

Subway employee sparks controversy with response to customer’s ‘disrespectful’ alleged sandwich order: ‘Do your job’

A Subway employee is sparking a massive online debate after sharing a customer’s alleged $460 sandwich order.

The claim comes courtesy of a now-viral video posted on TikTok. The clip, shared by user @gojij24, has thousands of commenters arguing over who is in the wrong when a fast-food chain turns down an elaborate order request.

It’s a debate that comes after a series of similar viral Subway orders. In the past, TikTokers have shared alleged customer requests ranging from adding sauce until a sandwich is “oozing” to toasting a sub until it’s burnt to a crisp. 

According to @gojij24, this particular order was so difficult that their store had to cancel it. The TikToker claimed in their clip that a customer placed the order at 2:30 a.m. in the morning. The price totaled $462, and the receipt was allegedly longer than the register counter. 


I used to manage the McDonald's a mile from the MN Vikings training center. It wasn't unusual for the team bus to come by at 2 or 3 in the morning full of players. They would send the driver in with upto 10 pages of orders. We would give them an estimate on how long it would take us to make their food, often over an hour. They would just park the bus and wait.

George Floyd Square- take 2

Minneapolis city crew works to reopen 38th and Chicago for traffic

For the second time in less than a week, Minneapolis city crews are trying to reopen the area around 38th Street and Chicago Avenue to traffic early Tuesday morning. 

Minneapolis city crews, at around 4:50 a.m., were removing items from George Floyd Square in an attempt to reopen the intersection to traffic. Once crews were done removing items, they left the area. 

Last Thursday, 5 EYEWITNESS NEWS was at 38th and Chicago as crews and a community group removed concrete barriers blocking off the square, but activists quickly moved in after and blocked off the roads again with makeshift barriers. 

I believe if the city thought everyone was on board and there would be no push back they wouldn't do this before sunrise.

Stepfather of 14-year-old killed in Woodbury arrested, charged in drive-by shooting

Stepfather of 14-year-old killed in Woodbury arrested, charged in drive-by shooting

Police say a man believed to be the stepfather of the 14-year-old who was shot and killed after a shooting near a Woodbury graduation party has been arrested and charged.

According to court records, 35-year-old Keith Dawson is charged with drive-by shooting, illegal possession of a firearm, and two counts of second-degree assault with a dangerous weapon.

A criminal complaint states Dawson told investigators that his 14-year-old stepson, identified by the family as Demaris Hobbs-Ekdahl, had called him and said he and his 16-year-old brother were getting robbed and needed help on Saturday night.

Dawson told authorities he took his gun and drove to the 6100 block of Edgewood Avenue in a white Chevrolet Tahoe and then fired shots toward the people he thought were "messing with his kids." Woodbury Public Safety said Dawson claimed he was just trying to scare the group and added that he wasn't aware Hobbs-Ekdahl was among a group that was following him.


So everyone was safe until the step-dad decided to "scare" the other kids...

(Fox was trying to link this to Minneapolis efforts to defund the police even though Woodbury is 20 miles away on the opposite side of St Paul from Minneapolis)

BCA: No body camera footage of deadly law enforcement shooting at Minneapolis parking garage

BCA: No body camera footage of deadly law enforcement shooting at Minneapolis parking garage

 There is no body camera or squad car footage of the deadly law enforcement shooting of a man at a Minneapolis parking garage according to the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension.

According to the BCA, the U.S. Marshal Service does not allow the use of body cameras for officers serving on its North Star Fugitive Task Force. There is no squad car footage of the incident.

Thursday afternoon the task force was attempting to arrest a man, identified by family as Winston Smith, who had a warrant for felony firearms violation. The encounter occurred on the top level of the parking ramp in the 1400 block of Lake Street.

At one point, a deputy from the Hennepin County Sheriff's Office and a deputy from the Ramsey County Sheriff's Office both fired their guns, hitting Smith. Authorities say evidence shows that he also fired his gun from inside the vehicle. Investigators say they found a handgun and spent cartridge cases inside the driver's compartment.


Prediction- this isn't going to go well

Minneapolis- again

Officers shoot, kill suspect during attempted arrest at Uptown parking ramp

Law enforcement officers shot and killed a person while trying to arrest a fugitive Thursday afternoon at a parking ramp in the Uptown area of Minneapolis.

According to the U.S. Marshals Service, around 2:10 p.m. near West Lake Street and Fremont Avenue South, members of a task force tried to arrest a person wanted on a state warrant for unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon. 

During the encounter, the suspect, who was in a parked car, was uncooperative and produced a handgun, the USMS said. The officers then shot at the suspect. Officers attempted life-saving measures, but medics pronounced the suspect dead at the scene.

A woman in the car was treated for minor injuries from glass debris.

Overnight vandalism, looting reported after officers shot, killed suspect in Uptown

There were reports of vandalism and looting overnight Thursday into Friday in the Uptown neighborhood of Minneapolis.

Police worked to disperse groups of people while also responding to businesses' reports of damage.

Overnight incidents happened after the U.S. Marshals Services reported an armed suspect was shot and killed around 2 p.m. Thursday in an Uptown Parking ramp.

U.S. Marshals Services stated a task force was attemptng to make an arrest when the shooting happened.


This happening on the same day George Floyd Square was opened by the city and a community group. Before the morning was over it was re-barricaded by other groups who disagreed with the reopening.

Hours after crews work to reopen streets, makeshift barriers placed around George Floyd Square

Hours after crews work to reopen streets, makeshift barriers placed around George Floyd Square

People put up makeshift barriers around the area known as George Floyd Square just a few hours after city crews came in to start reopening the streets.

The intersection of 38th Street and Chicago Avenue in south Minneapolis has been closed to traffic since George Floyd was killed last May, with a group of citizens manning the barricades.

How to proceed has become a sensitive and contentious issue.

The removal of the barricades around 4:30 a.m. Thursday came as a surprise to many, including some members of the Minneapolis City Council, who said they did not get any advance notice of the plan.


Visited the square this evening, a lot of people there were not happy about the city's surprise move in the early morning

Thursday, city crews and members of a community-led group worked to remove barriers at 38th Street and Chicago Avenue in south Minneapolis

In an unannounced move, crews reopened the area to traffic.

A member of the group Agape Movement, described as a community security force in the area, said barricades were removed for security reasons as well as to promote healing in the community. The group member also said the memorial items in the area, such as the fist sculpture and flowers, will remain.

Members of Agape Movement said during a news conference Thursday that the group was part of negotiations with the city and law enforcement members.


Not all groups are in agreement with this morning's sudden reopening of the intersection.

Chauvin defense asks for lesser sentencing, proposes probation

Chauvin defense asks for lesser sentencing, proposes probation

On Wednesday, the defense attorney for ex-Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin asked for a downward sentencing departure for his client. 

Documents filed in Hennepin County court propose probation and prison time equal to the time Chauvin has already served instead of the sentencing he is facing.

Chauvin was charged and convicted of second- and third-degree murder charges, as well as a second-degree manslaughter charge. He is scheduled to be sentenced on June 25. 

"...the court must look to the facts. They all point to the single most important fact: Mr. Chauvin did not intend to cause George Floyd's death," the defense claimed in the filings submitted Wednesday

Has anyone ever received time served plus probation for a murder conviction?

Police respond to George Floyd square on reports of shots fired

Police respond to George Floyd square on reports of shots fired

Bystanders at the Minneapolis intersection where George Floyd died ducked for cover Tuesday as the sound of gunshots rang out nearby, taking shelter briefly.

John Elder, a spokesman for the city of Minneapolis, said officers responded to the 3800 block of Elliot Avenue on a report of the sound of shots fired. Officers learned a vehicle was seen leaving the area at a high rate of speed.

The spokesman said that a short time afterward, a person arrived at Abbott Northwestern Hospital with a gunshot wound. That person was transferred to Hennepin County Medical Center for treatment of the injury, which is not considered to be life-threatening.

At the time of the incident, an Associated Press journalist shooting video at the intersection of 38th and Chicago reported hearing as many as 30 gunshots about a block from the intersection, and said a storefront window appears to have been broken by a gunshot.


The intersection is supposed to be having a festival today with activities, music and food trucks.

Prosecutor assigned to Kim Potter case resigns, notes 'partisan politics' as reason for departure

Prosecutor assigned to Kim Potter case resigns, notes 'partisan politics' as reason for departure

The prosecuting attorney in the Kim Potter case, a former Brooklyn Center officer who discharged a firearm that killed Daunte Wright last month, has resigned from his position.

Imran Ali confirmed with KSTP that he has submitted a letter of resignation to Washington County Attorney Pete Orput. His resignation will be effective as of June 17. In the letter, Ali noted the "vitriol" and "partisan politics" as reasons for his decision. 

"The last several weeks have been difficult for me and my family," Ali stated, in part. "The vitriol from some and the infusion of partisan politics by many has made my job difficult to pursue justice."

Potter has been charged with second-degree manslaughter in the death of Wright. Many activists and community members have pushed for a murder charge to be added on, including a protest in front of Orput's home after the charges were announced.
