TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - A Burger King employee has been arrested after investigators say he pulled a gun on another employee during an argument. 

Dijon Frank Dicks, 22, of Tallahassee, and a fellow employee working in the Burger King, 2626 S. Monroe St., got into a heated argument while discussing the victim's girlfriend, according to a probable cause document.

She had come to the restaurant on April 4, to get something to eat. The victim became upset when Dicks was trying to help her get her order.

After agreeing to take their disagreement outside and to fight, according to a probable cause affidavit, the victim was surprised when, outside in a parking lot, Dicks pulled a gun from his waistband.

Dicks pointed the small black semi-automatic pistol at the victim's face, the court document said, and the victim said he told Dicks that "If you're going to do it, then do it."

Realizing other employees had called the police, Dicks left the scene on foot.

Documents say Witnesses corroborated the victim's story, saying they saw Dicks holding a small black handgun near the victim's right side.

Officers later went to Dicks' last known address but found he had been evicted and were not immediately able to locate him.

Dicks faces charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and home invasion without a firearm or weapon. He was booked into the Leon County Detention Center on Thursday on a $5,000 bond.
