A shocking new video has shown the moment a Jack in the Box drive-thru worker opened fire on a family after they argued about an order of french fries.  

Anthony Ramos was at the Houston fast food joint with his pregnant wife and his 6-year-old daughter when employee Alonniea Ford opened fire at him in March 2021 near Bush Airport on John F. Kennedy Boulevard. 

The dad had stopped to get food – but returned to the window when he noticed an order of curly fries was missing. 

Alonniea Ford refused to fill the order – and an argument between the two ensued.

She then started opening fire toward the car, as Ramos drove off. Ford has pleaded guilty to deadly conduct. 

Authorities have released surveillance video more than two years after the ordeal. Ford was seen loading a gun in her pocket before the encounter, then leaning through the window and shooting at the family. 

She was arrested and charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, and pleaded guilty to a deadly conduct charge. 

Ramos said: ‘I was dumbfounded by it. I really couldn’t believe what was happening. It was scary. It was very, very scary.’

‘It was more of a panic mode at that moment. I’m lucky that I saw it when I saw it and I was able to pull off when I did and then my initial reaction was to call the police.

The Ramos family sued Jack in the Box for gross negligence. 

After launching a lawsuit last September, Ramos said: ‘We are here today to ask Jack in the Box to get better policies and policies where potentially dangerous employees are not allowed to interact with the public where they could be a great danger.’ 

Randall Kalinen, the family’s attorney said: ‘When they asked to get curly fries, they were denied, and keep in mind, there’s no car behind them. 

‘So, there was no rush to get them out. They offered to pay for the curly fries, even though they had already paid for it already, but the answer was no. 

‘Pretty soon there was shouting.’
