Chef Drama: Calgary Cook Causes Customers To Flee After Brandishing Knife


A family eating at a restaurant in Calgary found themselves in a dicey situation this week after complaining about their meal. Their complaint prompted the chef of the eatery to meet with the family -- and then allegedly also motivated him to wave his meat cleaver in the air, causing the family to scramble out of the restaurant in fear.

Police were later called to the scene of the restaurant in the northeast end of Calgary and said the dispute began as a verbal argument between the two parties. However, since the knife was not used violently and no one was hurt, the chef would not be facing any charges.

Think this Calgarian chef's response was out of line? Check out these other six meltdowns these cooks have had in the past:
