A man upset about a negative restaurant review committed a drive-by shooting at the home of the person who wrote the review, according to an arrest affidavit.

Orange County deputies say Monica Walley wrote a Facebook post on Aug. 20 claiming that Daybreak Diner on Curry Ford Road near Crystal Lake Drive refused to serve her disabled mother, the affidavit said.

The owner’s son, Michael Johnson, his roommate Jesse Martin and Norman Auvil were drinking beer that night and were angry about the review, the affidavit said.

Martin found Walley’s address online, and the trio drive to the home “with the intent to harm someone” or cause property damage, according to the affidavit. With Johnson driving and Martin navigating, Auvil fired three shots into the home when they drove by, the affidavit said.

One of the shots went through a window and nearly hit someone sitting on a couch, deputies said. No one was injured.

Martin and Johnson, who have not been arrested, said Auvil is prone to “violent outbursts,” the affidavit said. Auvil was arrested Thursday on charges of shooting into a building, shooting from a vehicle and abuse of a disabled person. He is at the Orange County Jail on a $4,300 bond.

No one from the restaurant could be reached for comment.
