Man sues Popeye's for running out of chicken treat

Police are investigating after a man pulled out a gun and tried to enter a Popeyes Chicken restaurant in Houston, Texas, late Monday, reportedly demanding the fast-food chain's famed chicken sandwich that was recently sold out.

He said he was scammed out of $25 by a man claiming to be a Popeyes employee who said he was selling sandwiches behind a restaurant. Since going viral, the popular Louisiana Kitchen menu item has now disappeared from all locations upsetting those who still have not gotten the chance to savor the delectable fast food treat.

The lawsuit, which is seeking $5,000 in damages, alleges that Popeyes engaged in "false advertising" and "deceptive business practices by entity to public". The Chattanooga man says he was also humiliated by friends and suffered $1,500 in tire and rim damage while driving around for sandwiches.

"Popeye's heard I wanted to try their sandwich so they sent me some in a jet...." "No chicken sandwich. Was told to come back this day- still no sandwich".

With no sandwich in sight, Barr said had just about enough, claiming that the drive to multiple restaurants caused a flat tire and damaged his vehicle rim. "It just consumes you". Chick-fil-A said in the tweet that its chicken sandwich was "the original".

The Miami-based chicken chain's popular sandwich exceeded expectations after selling out within days of its August 12 launch.
