McDonald’s Patron Slaps Pregnant Employee for Order Mix-Up
McDonald’s customers can be a very picky bunch.
Based on a handful of stories we’ve heard over the years, these patrons are not always loving it when it comes to their service.
Remember that Florida Man who attacked an employee over the store’s new straw policy?
Or the folks who actually filed a lawsuit because they were forced to pay for cheese on their burger?
With the fast food pun fully intended, there have been quite a few whoppers relayed over the Internet is just the past several months alone.
But the one down below may take the hot cake…
Simply put, a woman was arrested last Friday after going behind the counter at a McDonald’s restaurant in Norwich, Connecticut and slapping a manager in the face because the customer’s order “was made wrong.”
Did we mention this manager was pregnant at the time of the attack?
Because she was most definitely pregnant.
According to The Smoking Gun, police charged 21-year-old Shannelle Hanson with breach of peace and third-degree assault, taking her into custody after she overreacted to the aforementioned mistaken order.
Investigators say that Hanson purchased a McChicken Sandwich around 8:20 p.m. at the drive-thru window two miles from her home…
… but she wasn’t satisfied with what she received.
She allegedly got out of her car and walked into the restaurant, declaring that “her food was made wrong,” based on a customer who spoke with the cops.
Hanson subequently “requested a refund” and “then went behind the counter,” according to a Norwich Police Department arrest report.
The McDonald’s manager, whose name was not released and who is 29 weeks pregnant, told the police that she was “slapped in the face and pushed by Hanson.”
A male employee said that when he attempted to separate Hanson and his manager, who was situated near the french fry station, Hanson “slapped him in the face and pushed him.”
This happened after she was given a full refund, too.
In a written statement, the manager said that Hanson was made aware she was pregnant and responded to this information by telling those around her “she had bail money and didn’t care I was pregnant. She hoped I lost my child.”
After being taken into custody, Hanson told police she was upset that “there was nothing on” her McChicken Sandwich, which typically comes with shredded lettuce and mayonnaise.
Hanson admitted to cops that she tossed money in the manager’s face, but claims the pregnant victim “stepped to me and we were face to face.”
The manager, Hanson alleges, asked, “What are you going to do?”
Hanson added: “I do not know who threw the first punch.”
Charged with breach of peace and assaulting a pregnant woman (both misdemeanors), Hanson was released from custody on a $5,000 bond and is due in court on June 13.
