A Los Angeles teacher, 34-year-old Edward Maust, who was allegedly hammered and desperate for some fast food, pulled a knife on students Saturday night and demanded they take him to Jack in the Box.
The alleged incident began when three of Maust’s 17-year-old students at Arroyo Pacific Academy recognized Maust on a street corner at around 9:30 pm Saturday. Maust asked the students for a ride, and they said yes. Los Angeles County Sheriff Deputy Tony Moore notes, “They immediately noticed that he was intoxicated. They didn’t feel safe. They got out of the car and he ordered them back into the car.” After that, Maust allegedly pulled out a knife and demanded the students drive him to get fast food. One of the students managed to call 911, and Maust got out of the car and fled once he realized a police helicopter was tailing them.
Maust was charged with some heavy hitters: kidnapping, false imprisonment, and criminal threats.
Well, in his defense, have you ever had a Sourdough Jack? YUM.
