SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (AP) — Police say a Massachusetts Taco Bell employee used a BB gun to shoot a customer who was enraged when no one came to the drive-thru window to take his order.

Twenty-six-year-old Steven Noska is scheduled to be arraigned Tuesday on charges including assault and battery with a dangerous weapon.

Police tell The Republican newspaper in Springfield that it started at 4 a.m. Sunday when the customer approached the still-open drive-thru. After banging on the window and getting no response, he got out of his car and banged on the locked door.

Police say the two fought and that Noska then went to his car, got the BB gun and shot the customer several times. Police say the customer bit Noska on the arm.

It’s not clear if Noska has a lawyer.
