No ketchup angers man

A disgrunted McDonald’s customer on Saturday threatened “to cause a scene” over a packet of ketchup, according to the Mesa County Sheriff’s Department.

When the man ordered ketchup with his biscuit and did not get the ketchup packet, he called McDonald’s management at the 3219 Interstate 70 Business Loop store and said authorities should be called because he would arrive at 2:30 p.m. to “cause a scene.”

When the man arrived, he was issued a no-trespass order for all Mesa County McDonald’s restuarants, the Sheriff’s Department said.
