A West Palm Beach man is facing aggravated assault charges after authorities say he pulled a gun on three women so he could skip ahead of them at a McDonald's drive-thru.

James Lee Cruz, 58, was arrested Tuesday and charged with three counts of aggravated assault with a weapon in the May 15 incident at the restaurant at 1720 Palm Beach Lakes Boulevard.

Police say the women were in line at the restaurant when a man in a silver Buick, later identified as Lee, pulled alongside them and pointed a gun at them, according to the Palm Beach Post.

The women said the man was yelling at them but they couldn't hear him. The backed their car up and let him pass, but were able to get his license plate number, police said.

Lee was being held Friday on $7,500 bond. It was unknown whether he has an attorney.
