Man Who Attack Black McDonald's Employee Arrested

Man Who Attack Black McDonald's Employee Arrested

The Atlanta Black Star has posted a video showing a white customer at a McDonald's in St. Petersburg, Florida viciously grabbing a worker over what appears to have been a botched order.

She says it started when 40-year-old Daniel Taylor walked over to the condiment bar to grab a straw at this McDonald's on 34th Street in St. Petersburg.

"She told him that it's the law now that they're not supposed to have the straws in the lobby", said Brenda Biandudi, who witnessed and recorded the altercation, then spoke to The Washington Post on Wednesday via phone.

Despite being told of the new law, Taylor began screaming at employees, claiming that the law did not exist, WFTS reports.

Taylor is white and James is black. "He said there's no such law".

According to WFTS, a new law in St. Petersburg took effect January 1 requiring customers to ask for a straw at restaurants instead of them being openly available. The young woman dukes it out with the unruly patron for several seconds before fellow employees pull her from his grip as another worker rushes around the counter to restrain Taylor.

"No, you're finna go to jail", James yelled back.

Curse you, people who landed $16,000 first class seats for $675
And more than 9 million Cathy customers had their personal information stolen when its computers were hacked previous year . It sold business class tickets for HK$4600 ($875) for return flights from Los Angeles to both Shanghai and Bangkok.


NY rapper Mysonne is more than disgusted with a Florida man making headlines for attacking a McDonald's employee over a straw dispute.

Taylor asked for a refund according to the police report but was later arrested and charged with two counts of simple battery.

"I guess it was the last straw for that guy", he joked. "The defendant was being escorted out of the business by management due to him battering another employee, and causing a disturbance".

"Our highest priority is always the safety and well-being of our employees and customers at our restaurants." said a McDonald's representative.

Meanwhile, Biandudi said she is glad her video may have helped capture what transpired.

"I don't really have any criticisms about the way the staff handled it", Biandudi said. "I just hope (the customer) gets some help and his anger issues resolved".
