McDonald’s customer fumes over Happy Meal and throws food at restaurant staff

An angry McDonald’s fan wasn’t ‘lovely’ when CCTV caught her throwing a Happy Meal to staff above a drive-thru counter.

The customer is said to have filed a complaint after learning that her coupon had not been accepted at the Miramar fast food branch in Florida, United States, on December 29.

Security footage released by Miramar Police shows the woman getting out of her car and coming to the order counter to take her Happy Meal order.

She then throws the take-out meal on the counter towards a staff member, who is standing right next to the condiment section, and begins yelling at them.

She ends the tirade by knocking down the worker and leaving the premises.

Police say a McDonald’s employee suffered a bruise on his left hand after the incident.

Officers are now looking for the suspect to arrest her for aggravated assault and say she was driving a damaged black and red Kia.

One woman told 7news Miami: “Yeah, she deserves charges because she’s not paid enough to do this.

“I think people are struggling and they don’t know how to act.

“They vent their anger on random people for no reason.”

Elsewhere in Minnesota, a teenage McDonald’s employee was hailed a heroine by police when she saved a woman who was gagging over her takeout order.

Sydney Raley, 15, jumped out of the drive-thru window and used her Red Cross babysitter training to perform a Heimlich maneuver.

“She was coughing like crazy, and I noticed she was gagging,” Sydney recalled of the incident.

“Her daughter was in the passenger seat and she looked so freaked out. I knew right away ‘Oh no, she’s choking’.”

Two officers later arrived and checked the woman, who was in shock but doing well, and they gave Sydney a $100 (£73) reward from a fund used for people who do good work in the community.
