Thanks to a “hangry” Chick-fil-A customer, whose ability to think quickly is as refined as his taste in food, one Texas car thief is now sitting in jail where he belongs.
Earlier this week, officers with the Jacksonville Police Department attempted to apprehend a car thief, but the suspect tried to flee.
But in the process of trying to flee, the suspected thief apparently attempted to cut through a Chick-fil-A parking lot. Bad move.
Sitting in the drive-through line at the time was an unnamed good Samaritan in a big ol’ truck with a big ol’ door.
Now watch below to see what that Samaritan did with his big ol’ door:
Today, Jacksonville Police Officers attempted to stop a man in a stolen vehicle. The suspect ran through the Chick-Fil-A parking lot. A hungry customer, who was waiting patiently for his chicken sandwich, used his door to stop the suspect. The suspect was quickly apprehended after the “HANGRY” (but helpful) citizen reminded the suspect as to why you should never run from the police. VIDEO ATTACHED.

The Samaritan flung the door open as the suspect ran by his truck, causing the suspect to lose enough momentum that the officer chasing him was able to catch up and haul his butt to the ground — and then to jail.
“The suspect was quickly apprehended after the ‘HANGRY‘ (but helpful) citizen reminded the suspect as to why you should never run from the police,” the department later announced that afternoon on Facebook.
It neither identified the good Samaritan nor the suspect.
Word of advice to car thieves: Stay away from Chick-fil-A.
In fact, this advice goes out to ALL CRIMINALS, because for some reason Chick-fil-A customers have a history of really sticking it to degenerates and other lawbreakers.
Flashback to last Tuesday, a day before the incident in Texas. Over at a Chick-fil-A in Georgia, an armed suspect reportedly walked into the restaurant and tried using his gun to intimidate the cashier into handing over money. Again, bad move.

“Witnesses told police a man approached a cashier and demanded money from multiple employees. Witnesses told police the cashier then fled to the back of the store when the suspect fired three shots and fled the scene,” Atlanta station WAGA reported.
The suspect then tried to flee the scene but was cut off by, what else, but more “hangry” Chick-fil-A customers.
“Several customers confronted the man on his way out of the restaurant, one of whom was armed. The armed customer reportedly fired two shots and held the suspect at gunpoint until authorities could arrive,” according to Fox News.
Anyone who’s familiar with Chick-fil-A shouldn’t be surprised, because everything about the franchise — from its crime-fighting customer base to its kind employees — exudes the type of righteousness you’d expect from a Christian company.
Speaking of kindness, two years ago a Chick-fil-A in Maryland became a sensation after the store’s manager, Daryl Howard, went out of his way to help Mr. Lee, a distraught World War II veteran who had a flat tire.
“He was shaking, almost in tears saying he barely made it to the store on three tires because one was bad. As soon as he finished his sentence, Daryl informed me he needed to help this gentleman right now. So, Daryl jumped into action without hesitation,” another store manager, Rudy Somoza, said to CNN at the time.

This is what real, grownup love looks like.

“His action of kindness was beautiful. Daryl has always been so helpful to anyone in need and deserves this recognition,” the other manager added.
It was a small act of kindness, no doubt, but it was also a microcosm of Chick-fil-A’s whole philosophy, which, according to the company’s corporate mission statement, is “[t]o glorify God by being a faithful steward of all that is entrusted to us and to have a positive influence on all who come into contact with Chick-fil-A.”
Sadly, it’s a mission that the franchise is continuously persecuted over, even in ostensibly red states like Texas.
Back in 2019, San Antonio city officials booted Chick-fil-A from the San Antonio International Airport simply because of its Christian beliefs.

Incidentally, this banning is back in the news. A lawsuit filed against the city by a group of concerned citizens finally reached the Texas Supreme Court last September and is reportedly slated to proceed to the next stage sometime THIS month.
“The Texas Supreme Court will soon hear from San Antonio representatives about why the city council banned the popular fast food chain from the San Antonio International Airport in March of 2019,” Houston radio station KTRH reported on the 4th.
“Christian groups accuse the city of religious discrimination, saying city officials didn’t like Chick-fil-A being closed on Sundays, or the chain’s donating to faith-based organizations like the Salvation Army.”
Groups like Texas Values, which reportedly submitted an amicus brief in the case last month.
“The reason there’s a lawsuit, is because you have individuals from the city of San Antonio that have a concern about the way Christian businesses are treated. All of those small business that don’t have the voice some others like Chick-fil-A have, they stand to gain and also be protected with the success of this case,” the group’s president said to KTRH.
Truth be told, it seems like the only people who’d be negatively affected by Chick-fil-A’s presence would be criminals …
