On Saturday an Ankeny, Iowa man was arrested because, according to police, he threatened to blow up a local McDonald’s after they failed to include dipping sauce along with his chicken McNuggets order.

Sgt. Corey Schneden of the Ankeny P.D. told regional outlet WHO 13 that 42-year-old Robert Golwitzer Jr. phoned the restaurant at about 5:20 p.m. on Saturday after learning of his incorrect order. Golwitzer is alleged to have told the restaurant that he’d blow the place up and also made a reference to punching an employee. 

Police contacted the phone number Golwitzer called from, according to a criminal complaint. They say he admitted over the phone and during an interview at the police department that he’d made the threats. 

He was charged with a Class D felony for making a false report of explosive or incendiary device.

He was booked into jail on Saturday and was released on bond on Sunday.
