How serious could someone be if they are "holding up" a restaurant with a butter knife?

Could have ended up worse.
Cops could have ordered the perp to "Spread 'em" when they made the arrest.

Some quality trolling in the comments section.

Or trying to pick money up off table with one, instead of just using his hands.

Really sounds like he was genuinely playing around, and had no bad intentions, but everyone jumped at the chance to overreact and play dumb.

Only an asshole makes a joke about stealing tips.  When you reach into a tip jar "to make a joke," it is not funny at all.  Watch how serious someone gets when you "joke" about stealing their primary source of income.  The guy made another "joke" about stabbing someone with a butter knife.  Guess what asshole, now they can call the cops on you.

The employees weren't the ones who had a problem with anything, it was the 'observers'. For all we know he could have had friends who were working there.

From the sounds of the article, these 'observers' saw him poking at a tip with a butter knife and went all "OMG he's trying to steal it". There's no mention of him verbally threatening anyone with a butter knife, either, and i'm pretty sure they'd love to use a quote if he did.

I just can't seem to work up any outrage over this. Or even an opinion. Huh.

I came to point out that the 'just the tip'defense does have a president here. ChrisDe beat me too it though.

Seems the threatened employee would have vouched  for his buddy if it was a joke.  If they weren't buddies it was no joke.

What I don't get is why the customers threw him out and had to hold the door closed to keep him from re-entering the restaurant.

I got a kick out of the part where they are holding the door closed to keep him from coming back in.  At that point, shouldn't he realize that if he hangs around, it's going to go bad?  Get the hell out of dodge before someone decides to kick your ass or, I dunno, maybe call the cops.

It sounds to me like some asshole got caught taking tip money off a table, then he grabbed whatever knife was on the table and started making threats, then he got thrown out, then he hung around being a jerk until the cops eventually showed up.  Kinda hard to be very sympathetic at that point.

Nope.

"Witnesses spotted the 20-year-old man trying to take the tip money left behind on tables. When he was confronted, he grabbed a butter knife and threatened an employee with it, Schroeder said."

The knife was not in his hand until after he was confronted about taking the tip money.  Only when he was called out on his stealing did he pick up the knife and threaten someone with it.
