Man who racially abused Asian couple at California In-n-Out in viral video is arrested and jailed

A man who racially targeted two Asian customers at a California In-N-Out restaurant has been arrested, KRON4 reports.

The incident, which was captured on video and posted to TikTok where it went viral, showed Arine Kim and her friend trying out items from the burger joint’s menu when a man (who was off camera) approached them and said, “You’re filming yourself eating? You’re weird homosexuals.”

“Are you Japanese or Korean? Are you Kim Jong Un’s boyfriend? You have gay sex with him?” the man said to the pair. When Kim’s friend objected to the man’s words, things took a potentially dangerous turn when the man threatened to spit on them.

The man later said, “See you outside in a minute.”

Speaking to KRON4, Kim said that the man harassed other people of color too. She added that the man would step outside the restaurant to smoke cigarettes while making threatening gestures toward them.

The video caught the attention of  San Ramon Police Chief Denton Carlson, who then launched an investigation after getting in contact with Kim.

On Monday, Carlson announced Jordan Douglas Krah of Denver, Colorado, had been arrested for violating California’s hate crime laws.

“Krah is currently being interviewed and a press release will be distributed later with additional arrest charges (if determined they are necessary),” Carlson tweeted. “Krah will be booked at the County Jail in Martinez.”
