A Florida man is accused of pulling a gun on a Starbucks employee, who turned out to be the local police chief's daughter, over not having cream cheese for his bagel.

Omar Wright, 38, is the suspect accused of threatening Chief Delma Noel-Pratt's daughter when his order was wrong at the Starbucks drive-thru in Miami Gardens on Wednesday, according to Local 10 News.

"She felt in fear of her life," Noel-Pratt said, adding that her 23-year-old daughter was "traumatized" as a result of the incident, the Associated Press reported. "It was upsetting to me to know that someone would go to that extreme not having cream cheese on his bagel."

Her daughter told authorities she gave the man the cream cheese before he drove off and left the scene, the AP reported.

Local 10 News reported that Wright was arrested and charged Thursday with armed robbery and assault. An arrest report obtained by the outlet said Wright "caused a well-founded fear in the victim leading her to believe that if she didn't give him the cream cheese, whether he pays for it or not, her life was being put at risk."

In a statement, Starbucks said it was "concerned" after being informed about the incident, according to the news station.

"The safety of our partners (employees) and customers is always our top priority, and we are grateful to learn that no one was injured," the statement said, according to Local 10 News.
