NEW HOLLAND, PA – Police arrested a man after he threatened to kill a Wendy’s employee during an argument over the number of cucumbers in a salad.

The incident happened Sunday afternoon after 50-year-old Theodore Gunderson Jr. was served the salad he’d ordered from a New Holland Wendy’s.

Gunderson was not happy with the number of cucumbers in his salad or, more specifically, the lack of cucumbers in his salad.

Enraged, Gunderson allegedly cursed at the restaurant employee’s over the slight, then threw the salad in an employee’s face while stating, “If I had a gun or knife, you would be the first to go.”

The threatened employee called police to report the incident and to say he was in fear for his life – especially since the man was sitting in his vehicle in the parking lot.

When police arrived at the location and confronted Gunderson, he initially refused to roll down his window or exit his vehicle as instructed. When he finally did roll down the window, he put his key in the car’s ignition after being informed that he was being arrested.

When an officer reached inside the vehicle in an attempt to stop Gunderson from driving off, Gunderson started driving away with the officer’s arm still inside the vehicle.

The officer had to take multiple steps to to remove his arm and ensure he did not trip and possibly fall under the moving vehicle. The officer was not hurt and Gunderson was eventually stopped and placed into custody.

He is now facing charges of aggravated assault, terroristic threats, resisting arrest and disorderly conduct. He was arraigned this morning and committed to Lancaster County Prison in lieu of $10,000 bail.

    Over cukes. Fifty years old. Grow the fuck up.

  • Not enough cucumber? Hate crime!

  • Jeania

    Taking healthy eating to a whoooole new level… Geesh ^^

  • He went to far.. but I know I get majorly frustrated when they continuously mess up a simple order..


    I can’t hear “Gunderson” without thinking of Fargo … clearly mentally ill, and needs a big old time out for about a year in Castle Greybars to think about his shitty attitude.

  • Delaney3030

    This Could be the beginning of dementia. Not that I’m trying to make anyone feel bad for him. If you are a demented asshole then you quite possibly were an asshole before.

  • Those must be some bad as cucumbers.

  • BG

    Well he seems reasonable…

  • Ramonathegreat

    If he’s this abusive to a random fast food employee, chances are he has anger issues and has been an abusive fuck to his family (if he has one) as well. Hopefully he gets some help.


    The only use I have for Wendy’s these days, is their fries, for dunking in a Frosty.

    RIght!!! Nom, nom nom!!! 🙂

    I think I’m going to have to stop thru the drive thru on the way home now… dammit… LOL

  • Jesse Kretkowski

    Maybe he would have been more COOL if he got the CUCUMBERS.

  • jansav

    what a douchebag! threw the salad in the servers face? Tried to drag the cop down the road? Now he is looking at prison? Over a cucumber? I don’t think they have cucumbers in prison.

  • He’ll love jail if he loves cucumbers 😉

  • Elizabeth McCarthy

    Well. Was it worth it, Cuke Boy?

  • Dre Mosley

    Cucumbers? Really? Now if you had gotten shorted on bacon. . . .

  • Hope the guy isn’t married cause I’d pity his poor wife!

  • Josh

    Only a 10K bail? The world would be a better place without him.

  • PurpleAnn

    He’ll receive something long and cylindrical in prison, but not likely a cucumber.

  • PurpleAnn

    Note to self: add cucumbers to shopping list. (some bad-ass mother-f@cking cucumbers)

  • Scout Kent

    I have no idea why this comment amuses me so much.

  • He’s gonna get hot cucumbers

  • esmerald 2006

    I’m pretty sure he’ll be very content as long as it is cucumber shaped. Lol

    OK we are probably misunderstanding the poor guy, he only wanted slices of cucumber not the whole cucumber. Lol

    That’s an old-looking 50. Entitled much? He fits a shitty stereotype.

  • Diva of Destruction

    Threating someone’s life over a vegetable, humans truly are simple things.

  • Josh

    Maybe she is the reason he has a lot of cucumbers on his salad……

  • LMAO Boom!

  • BG

    I thought about it, hard, but I don’t live near a Wendy’s anymore, THANK GOD! I do have most of a Frosty in my Freezer though, might have to have that for dessert tonight. 🙂

  • We don’t even put cucumbers in our goddamn salads…

  • Old Man Metal

    “If I had a gun or knife, you would be the first to go.”

    But you don’t, so YOU’LL be the first to go. Idiot.


    I hear Wendy’s is hiring. You should probably go apply ….



    Wendy’s new tagline: “WHERE’S THE CUKES?”

  • Old Man Metal

    Just wait ’til he finds out what’s in the chili… I bet he breaks six figures on his bail then.

  • Old Man Metal

    He does look rough for 50. Hell, he’s only got 2 years on me, and old folks still call me “son” and “boy”. Then again, I live my life clean and pure. No fucking cucumbers.

  • mobiusclimber

    “When an officer reached inside the vehicle in an attempt to stop Gunderson from driving off, Gunderson started driving away with the officer’s arm still inside the vehicle.”

    And yet the cops didn’t open fire on him. Through this entire confrontation they didn’t fire a single shot. Why am I not surprised? Don’t sell single cigarettes if you’re black; don’t worry about trying to rip off a cop’s arm if you’re white.

  • Sejanus

    Prick is a menace.
    Lock him away for the rest of his damn days.

  • Hes gonna get babas cucumber

  • Stating The Obvious

    That is a fact!

  • Stating The Obvious

    Who or what is “babas”?

  • Robin Wise

    Geez, those must’ve been some awesome cucumbers!

    There was a guy who was on the Subway diet for 11 months and when he found out he hadn’t lost any weight, he got super angry and robbed 4 Subway’s at gunpoint to get his money back.

  • Bubba and the Silverbacks!

  • Funkdizzy

    I mean, what sort of monkey person does this?! Now gonna catch a good amount of time in a cage all because he wasn’t pleased with his salad. Geezus…

  • Flik Rust

    cucumbers are serious shit.

  • Heather_Simpson

    What a greedy psycho son of a bitch.


    This concern over eating healthy has gone too far.

  • Nick Trygg

    Smug look fuck face. I have to deal with the public and its guys like this that ruin other peoples day. Screw this guy, over a salad? Hope it was worth it dumb ass! lol
