A Colorado guy pulled a gun on a fast food worker who refused to accept drugs as payment

Some places don’t accept American Express, some don’t accept cash and this place didn’t accept meth.

A 40-year-old man in Aurora, Eugene Robertson, was found guilty of multiple charges including a bizarre interaction at a Burger King in 2022.

He’d gone through the drive-thru and offered to pay with a bag of drugs instead of money. The employee refused, so Robertson pulled a gun on him.

Then, he tried pulling a similar stunt at a 7-Eleven across the street. He pulled a gun on the 7-Eleven employee and fired. A witness pulled out a gun and fired back, and there was a brief gun fight.  No one was hit. Robertson did shoot out a surveillance camera, though.

Robertson drove off again, and 15 minutes later he was shooting into an apartment where a friend lived. The woman who lived there said that Robertson knocked, but she refused to open the door.

For this case, he was convicted of attempted first-degree murder with extreme indifference, menacing, reckless endangerment, illegally discharging a firearm, possession of methamphetamine and harassment.

He’s facing more than 400 years in prison.
