Police have charged a man who they say climbed in a drive-thru at a New Jersey McDonald's because he was tired of waiting for his Filet-O-Fish sandwich. Rashon East was charged with simple assault and making terroristic threats after he turned himself in to South Brunswick police on Monday.

Police say East felt intense pressure to surrender because of media attention from videotape and pictures that were released of the March 28 incident.

East paid for the sandwich at the first window. Surveillance video then showed the man climbed out of the back seat and into the pickup window.

Police said the man told an employee he would be waiting for him, slapped him in the face and walked out with the sandwich.

The 34-year-old was released on a complaint. It's not known whether he has a lawyer.
