Guy Gets Run Over at McDonald’s, Order Stolen

There’s no such thing as a free lunch…

From cbs.com:

“NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — A driver struck a man in a McDonald’s drive-thru lane in Queens, then backed up over him to retrieve a food order before fleeing, witnesses said.

The bizarre incident happened early Saturday morning at the McDonald’s on Merrick Boulevard near 244th Street in Laurelton, 1010 WINS’ Derricke Dennis reported.

“It’s pretty messed up,” a cashier at the restaurant said.

“Yeah, just to get their food. Yeah, that is some heartless stuff right there,” the employee continued.

It happened so fast that workers didn’t get a look at the car or the license plate. They were more concerned about the 48-year-old victim, who was left in critical condition with severe injuries after being rushed to Jamaica Hospital.

Witnesses say the victim appeared to be intoxicated before falling and being run over.

The NYPD is still searching for the driver and checking surveillance video.”

Drunk Lady at McDonald’s Loves Kicking Things

This is one of the first reports I’ve read where they don’t list a provocation. Either they left that part out or she she showed up ready to rumble.

From gainesville.com:

“A Sebring woman was arrested on felony charges early Tuesday morning after police say she spit on a restaurant drive-through window and then fought with police and hospital staff.

Gainesville Police Department officers were called to the McDonald’s at 201 NW 13th St. in response to a woman who was yelling at restaurant employees and spitting on a service window, according to a GPD report. When officers arrived, they came upon 20-year-old Sarah Benevides, who appeared intoxicated and was still yelling into the restaurant.

A GPD officer warned Benevides to leave or face arrest for trespassing, but she refused. The officer tried to place handcuffs on the woman, but she repeatedly pulled away her hands, the report states.

The officer “placed” Benevides to the ground after repeated failed attempts to handcuff her, the report states, and she then refused to stand up.

It took several other officers to bring her to a patrol car, and, at one point, she kicked one of them twice in the legs, the report states.

Benevides suffered a cut to her chin during the struggle with officers, and she appeared very intoxicated, so she was taken by ambulance to UF Health Shands Hospital, according to GPD. There she also kicked and spit on doctors and nurses.

Benevides “had to be sedated in order to be treated,” the report states.

Benevides faces one count of battery on a law enforcement officer and three counts of battery on an emergency medical care provider, according to GPD. She also faces misdemeanor charges of resisting arrest without violence and trespassing.

As of late morning, Benevides remained in the hospital, according to Officer Ben Tobias, a GPD spokesman.”

McDonald’s Says No to GMO Potato

Despite using other GMO ingredients, Ronald McD decided potatoes were where he draws the line.

From CNBC.com:

“The U.S. Department of Agriculture has approved Idaho-based J.R. Simplot’s new genetically modified potato. But one of the company’s oldest business partners—McDonald’s—hasn’t.

The Idaho Statesman reports that the fast-food giant says it doesn’t use genetically modified potatoes and has no plans to change that policy.”

Woman Tries McDonald’s Coffee Injury Claim, Gets Burned by Own Crappy Evidence

I once knew someone who got in trouble at work because they used a fake doctor’s note they printed off of the internet. Probably wouldn’t have gotten caught if they didn’t fill in the blanks themselves…something people with distinctive handwriting should probably avoid. Especially when the person you’re trying to dupe sees your handwriting daily. Here’s another such genius.

From workerscompensation.com:

“Selena Edwards, 38, of Victorville, was arrested and faces 21 felony counts of insurance and workers’ compensation fraud, including submitting a fraudulent insurance claim, false statements, and false evidence associated with an alleged fraudulent claim against McDonald’s for second-degree burns to her hand from spilled coffee.

“By copying legitimate burn photos from the internet, Edwards attempted to make a profit from another person’s pain and suffering and for this she will be prosecuted to the full extent of the law,” said Insurance Commissioner Dave Jones.
Edwards claimed that when she was handed a cup of coffee at a McDonald’s drive-thru, the lid was not secured and the coffee spilled on her right hand. Edwards submitted an injury claim with photos of a hand with second-degree burns, but detectives discovered that some of the photos had been copied from a hospital website. In an attempt to exaggerate her injury, Edwards also submitted counterfeit documentation for treatment that she claimed to have received from a local hospital.

Edwards was released on her own recognizance and is scheduled Monday, November 10, 2014 to return to court for a preliminary hearing.”

Cops Make Movie-like McBust in Boston

This is some Jack Bauer type unfolding of events.

From bostonglobe.com:

“Two masked men stormed into the McDonald’s restaurant across from the Boston Common early Thursday, tied up two employees and were rushing out the back door with stolen cash and a sawed off shotgun – when Boston police officers arrested them at gunpoint, authorities said.

One of the men was armed with a sawed-off shotgun, Boston Police spokesman Sergeant Michael McCarthy said Thursday.

According to police, the dramatic robbery started around 12:15 a.m. when the two masked men rushed into the restaurant and seized control of the employees, who were then tied up by the the thieves, police said.

McCarthy said three Boston police officers responded to a report of an armed robbery in progress at the McDonald’s restaurant at 146 Tremont St.

“One officer goes to the rear alley and two officers went to the front door. As the officers pulled up, the suspects were going out the back door,” said McCarthy.

McCarthy said the two suspects were arrested at gunpoint, and that arresting officers seized a sawed-off shotgun from one of the men.

He said investigators were trying to determine if the two suspects were linked to an armed robbery at the same restaurant several weeks ago.

The two suspects. whose names were not immediately released, are scheduled to be arraigned Thursday on armed robbery and other charges in Boston Municipal Court Thursday.”

Alleged Serial Wanker Busted Wanking in Front of Kids in McDonald’s Restroom

Gahhh, even the soap probably feels dirty in that bathroom…

From nbcnewyork.com:

“New Jersey man who was arrested last week for allegedly masturbating in front of a boy inside a McDonald’s restroom is facing new charges after three more victims stepped forward to report similar cases to police.
Gregory Rittman, 49, was initially arrested on Friday, Oct. 24, after an 8-year-old boy reported witnessing the lewd behavior near the sink at a McDonald’s on Route 35 in Freehold, according to the Monmouth County prosecutor’s office.

Rittman, of Howell, was charged with sex assault, child endangerment and lewdness, then released after posting $73,000 bail, the prosecutor’s office said.

Since then, three additional victims ranging in age from 6 to 8 went to police to describe witnessing similar lewd acts in public restrooms over the last year, officials said.”

Two Women in Philly Miss Breakfast Cutoff, Flip the Hell Out

Everyone knows the Golden Arches doesn’t serve breakfast all day. Apparently, these two divas think they can throw (chairs and) big enough tantrums to get what they want.

Spoiler alert: they don’t.

From madworldnews.com:

“Having crawled out of bed just a bit too late, two women were recently caught on tape throwing a super-sized adult hissy-fit because they’d been told that they missed the McDonald’s breakfast time. When a man stepped in to tell the woman to relax, they went berserk.

As reported by My Fox Philadelphia, the incident took place in a Philadelphia McDonald’s, where an onlooker decided to whip out his camera and record the incident from its beginning. After loudly mouthing off to employees on account of the terrible misfortune, one man decided to speak up, telling the women to take a chill pill as the employees were only doing their jobs – after all, those were the rules.”
