ANKENY, Iowa (WHO) – An Iowa man was arrested Saturday after police say he threatened to blow up a McDonald’s because the restaurant didn’t include dipping sauce for his Chicken McNuggets.

Sgt. Corey Schneden with the Ankeny Police Department said the 42-year-old man called a McDonald’s restaurant in Ankeny around 5:20 p.m. Saturday after discovering his order was incorrect.

In the call, the man allegedly threatened to blow up the restaurant and punch an employee.

According to a criminal complaint, police called the suspect at the phone number used to make the threat. Police said he admitted over the phone, and later in an interview at the police department, that he made the threats.

The man has been charged with a Class D felony: false report of explosive or incendiary device.

He was booked into the Polk County Jail on Saturday and was released on bond Sunday.
