SPRINGDALE, Ark. -- An Arkansas man was arrested on Monday for putting soda in a water cup at a McDonald's, refusing to return the drink and fleeing, according to KHBS-TV.

The manager at the restaurant called police to report a robbery after three men allegedly ordered large waters in the drive-through, dumped them out, went back inside and filled them with soda.

Two of the men returned their drinks, but police said 18-year-old Cody Morris reportedly fled.

Officials stated Morris hit the manager twice with his car when the man tried to block his escape.

Police located Morris' car at a nearby bowling alley. He was charged with felony robbery and was released on $2,500 bond.
