ould fast-food wrath be the new road rage? It's starting to seem that way. Over the weekend, a San Antonio, Texas man, Ricardo Jones, 37, was so upset to find that the price of his beloved Taco Bell Beefy Crunch Burrito had increased from $.99 to $1.49 that he fired an air gun at an employee. When police arrived, he fired an assault rifle at them and then barricaded himself in a hotel room. After a three-hour standoff, officers forced Jones from the room using tear gas and charged him with attempted capital murder and two felony counts. The Jones rampage is just the latest in a recent spate of violent freakouts at fast food restaurants across America and even around the world. Here are seven others:
