He says the attendant recognized Stephens, who was wanted in Sunday's slaying of a retired OH man, and called 911.
Stephens had ordered a 20-piece McNuggets and a side of fries.
A McDonald's employee recognized him and told Stephens the fries were not ready in order to stall for time as another employee called 911. Authorities say Stephens shot and killed himself during the pursuit.
One of the pursuing troopers picked his spot - in front of an abandoned school - and hit Stephens' bumper to get him to stop.
In other videos posted to his Facebook account, Stephens claimed he murdered 15 other people and would kill again.

Gail Wheeler, of Erie, said she was stopped at a light at the McDonald's when Stephens came "whipping out" of the parking lot, almost hitting her.
