A 28-year-old Texas man is facing a slew of charges after allegedly trying to skip out on his restaurant tab. Adam Kramer had ordered six tacos from his waitress at Alondras De Jalisco earlier this month. When his waitress informed him that he would actually, you know, have to pay for his meal, Kramer allegedly tried to convince her otherwise by pulling a sword.

When the waitress told Kramer that he had to pay for his food, he allegedly started sliding what is described as a large sword in and out of a black sheath on his waist, the affidavit says.

The waitress asked the cook to come talk with Kramer, who left the building when the phone rang, according to the affidavit. Kramer went to his vehicle before walking back to the restaurant, still allegedly carrying the large sword, so the waitress locked the door, documents state.

“Mr. Kramer was yelling that he wanted his free tacos or somebody was going to die,” the affidavit says.

Kramer eventually drove out of the parking lot in a black Toyota truck, according to authorities. He was picked up by Bexar County Sheriff's Office deputies the next day on a separate charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
