Cops: Cashier Pulled Gun In Soy Sauce Beef
Eatery worker busted for menacing teen customer
SEPTEMBER 3--During a dispute over soy sauce, a worker at a Chinese restaurant allegedly pulled a gun on a dissatisfied teenage customer who sought extra packets of the condiment, Ohio police report.
According to cops, the 19-year-old patron asked for more soy sauce after receiving his takeout order Sunday night at Dayton’s Dragon City eatery (pictured below). That request somehow triggered an argument between the teen and Allan Lin, a 40-year-old cashier.
As detailed in a Dayton Police Department report, the patron, Munjed Milhem, said that Lin removed a handgun from a holster on his belt and jammed the weapon into his chest. Lin, Milhem said, was “yelling frantically” and waving his gun around.
When cops arrived at the business, they seized a Smith & Wesson handgun and three full 12-round magazines from Lin (who had the gun and ammo attached to his belt).
During questioning, Lin claimed that Milhem was “rude” and had yelled at him over the soy sauce. He added that the teenager threatened to have him “jumped.” In reply to that purported threat, Lin said that he told Milhem, “Go ahead and do it.” Lin also reportedly admitted pushing his gun into Milhem’s chest.
Lin was arrested for aggravated menacing, a misdemeanor, and booked into the Montgomery County jail.
According to his Facebook page, Milhem (seen at left) graduated last year from high school and now attends Wright State University in Dayton. (3 pages)
