A man fired from a Chick-fil-A in South Carolina gets even -- with KFC?

Jeffrey Coley, 50, had worked at a local Chick-fil-A until he failed to show up for two two days in a row and was fired June 18, according to The Associated Press.

So why not take out your frustrations on a rival chicken chain?

That's what Coley is now accused of doing.

According to police, Coley robbed a KFC in Rock Hill at gunpoint on Monday, pulling a gun on drive-through employees and making off with $516.

He was arrested Tuesday.

Coley is now charged with armed robbery, possession of a gun during a violent crime, failure to stop for police and possession of methamphetamine.
