Erick Munoz-Garibay allegedly asks, "What the f**k, you laughing at me?" at McDonald's knifing

Remember that scene in Goodfellas where Tommy (Joe Pesci) responds to a compliment from Henry (Ray Liotta) about a joke by seemingly building up to a homicidal freak out -- "Funny like a clown, I amuse you?" -- before revealing that he was only putting everyone on? A similar scene at a Denver McDonald's allegedly involving Erick Munoz-Garibay didn't have such a happy ending.
