A man in New Delhi was angry when his waiter refused to eat his leftovers so he allegedly opened fire on the restaurant.

The incident happened early Sunday morning when the suspect, who is only being identified as "Rajesh," went to a restaurant called Jain Dhaba with two friends.

The trio was allegedly intoxicated and at one point, Rajesh and his friends asked the waiter, whose name was "Monu," to eat some of their paratha, a form of Indian flatbread, according to the Times Of India.

When Monu refused to eat the leftovers, an argument ensued and Rajesh allegedly took out a gun and fired it at the waiter, who ran for cover, according to DaijiWorld.com.

The waiter managed to call the police who arrested Rajesh shortly thereafter and charged him with attempted murder, according to Emirates247.com.

The suspect's two friends fled the crime scene, but officials have recovered a car, two live cartridges and a .32 bore pistol, according to NDTV.com.
