Popeyes Chicken Sandwiches Indirectly Caused a Stabbing in Maryland

Popeyes popular chicken sandwich indirectly led to a fatal stabbing Monday night in Maryland.

According to police in Prince George’s County, they received a call about a fight at a Popeyes location in Oxon Hill at about 7 p.m. on Monday. The fight reportedly broke out when one man allegedly cut in line in front of another. The beef was taken outside where one of the men was stabbed.

PGPD Director of Media Relations Jennifer Donelan said late Monday, “We have been able to determine, preliminarily, that this is related to the release of the sandwich here at this restaurant… this individual was in line specifically for the sale of the sandwich when another customer and he got into an altercation and that ended with the victim being stabbed outside of the business.”

When police turned up at the scene, they saw a 28-year-old man in the parking lot who had been stabbed. He was taken to a local hospital, but later died from his injuries. (FOX 5 DC)
