He just wanted cream cheese for the bagel.
But when a Florida man allegedly pulled a gun into a Starbucks drive-thru, angry at a botched order, he unwittingly waved the gun at the daughter of the local police chief, who worked at the counter, according to Miami Gardens authorities.
Chef Delma Noel-Pratt told local media her 23-year-old daughter was reprimanded with verbal and physical threats before handing the driver his cream cheese and he left.
“She was afraid for her life,” Noel-Pratt said. “It was overwhelming for me to know that someone would go to this extreme without having cream cheese on their bagel.”
Separately, she told Local 10 News that the incident happened near her home just hours before she delivered remarks at a previously scheduled rally against gun violence.

“Forget the badge, forget the title, it’s my kid,” she told the Miami-based station. “And I thought, will I see her again? Is she okay? Of course she was upset, she was crying, so I had to go into mom mode.”
Police arrested Omar Wright, 38, on Thursday in connection with the incident on charges of aggravated assault and armed robbery. He was being held on $ 10,000 bond.
He reportedly returned to the drive-thru and yelled at the chef’s daughter, claiming her cream cheese was missing. When asked if he paid for it, police said he took out the gun.
In his first court appearance on Friday, he said he did not believe the robbery charge was justified – although it is not clear whether or not he paid for the creamy spread.

Noel-Pratt’s daughter told investigators that although Wright had not pointed the gun at her, she still feared for her life.
He claimed he grabbed it because it was falling out of his pocket and denied threatening the clerk, according to the police report.
