Hero Breaks Up Literal Custody Battle at McDonald’s

Someone call Maury!

From wtsp.com:

“(Des Moines Register) — A good Samaritan flashed a pistol to stop two people from fighting over a child at a McDonald’s on Sunday.

Police arrived at McDonald’s, 701 Army Post Road, around 1:20 p.m. on a report of an assault. Two parents were in a “tug-of-war” over their 1-year-old outside the restaurant, according to a police report.

The mother told police at first that she had court documents proving she had custody of her son, but agreed to meet the father for a visitation. After about 30 minutes, the mother tried to leave the restaurant with her son in her arms, the report stated.

The father reportedly ran up behind her, pinning her against the glass to prevent her from leaving. She could feel a knife that was in his pocket, the report stated.

That’s when another man, who was walking into McDonald’s, intervened. He saw a man put his hands on the woman and pulled out a pistol, pointing it at the ground.”

The man had military experience and described himself as a “good Samaritan” who was concerned a physical assault was taking place, the report stated. He had a permit to carry concealed weapons.

The man talked the two parents down, and the woman walked away with the child. The father got into a car and left the scene.

Police located the father, who said he has had custody of the son since he was 12 days old and denied the custody order existed. The two were at McDonald’s so he could visit with his son, but the mother suddenly walked off with him, the father told police.
The suspect admitted that he tried to stop her and grabbed at his son, but that he had no intent of assaulting either of them.

The mother later told police she had found the court order for custody of her child and that she wasn’t sure whether the man was even the father. She told police the man tried to “kidnap” her son.

No charges have been filed because there were no visible injuries and police have yet to reach all witnesses to the incident, the report stated.”

Controversy Continues Over Fake Halal McDonald’s Meat


From moroccantimes.com:

“You might remember McDonald’s being in the hot seat back in 2013 for the meat used in their menu. The controversy surrounding continuously this titan franchise is in regards to the meat’s origin, and just how HALAL it is. McDonald’s has now opened its “Labs” doors to the media to put an end, once and for all, to this controversy.

MCDONALD’S has declared that the suspicions rose originally from outside Morocco. “The issue is not exclusive to Morocco, but to most Muslim countries,” said Ouassila El Bakkali, corporate communication manager. According to Miss El Bakkali, not all the ingredients used by the franchise come from abroad, it’s a 50/50 deal; Onions, tomatoes and bread are all from Morocco. ”Even the miller is from Morocco,”confirms Miss El Bakkali. Save the day, Ouassila. Save the day. But can we draw your attention back to the real issue here, The Meat.

Back in 2013, in the midst of a major attack that McDonald’s faced by modern times’ most fearful: “Netizens”, the franchise’s Facebook page was overflowing with questions in regards of the origin of the meat in the country’s restaurants. Yet, McDonald’s gave no replies, leaving suspicions grow and develop into assumptions for about 3 months. “This controversy went viral around the time our online service was under construction. And because we did not want to make of this page our official portal for statements, we were trying to come up with the best way to issue one. This is why we decided to wait and do it on our web site, which is more representative of our image as a Multinational corporation”, explains Mr. Abdellah Bnaiche, Brand strategy vice president.

Back again to tackling the issue here, the meat is actually certified from Spain by the Instituto Halal under the surpervision of the Islamic council of Spain, and it comes also from Argentina from the Halal Catering Argentin under the supervision of the Islamic center of Argentina [CIRA]. According to Yabiladi.com, the information collected from the Spanish organization website says that its certification is authorized in 18 different countries, including Morocco [Ministry of Health] and the UAE.

After laying down all these clarification, this should inspire some comfort as countries such as Indonesia tend to be very strict in regards to their standards towards Halal meat. However, Moroccans seem yet with very little faith in McDonald’s, and still think [according to a common agreement among Netizens at least] that the meat is not all Halal. “We are planning another visit around the end of this year to Spain, in order to put an end to this”, said Miss El Bakkali referring to the press trip organized back in 2009 to McDonald’s meat supplier’s slaughterhouse in Spain.”

Drunk Arrested for Wanking in McDonald’s Bathroom

What the H?

From sun-sentinel.com:

“Man arrested after children caught him exposing himself in McDonald’s bathroom, deputies said
Palm Beach County Sheriff’s deputies arrested a man who was reportedly masturbating in a McDonald’s bathroom in front of two children.

Deputies said just after 4 p.m. Monday, they got a call from a McDonald’s customer about a drunk and unruly man. After a deputy responded to the store, at 1775 N. Military Trail in suburban West Palm Beach, he found Dario Rubiera Jr., 48, who was drunk, according to an arrest report.

Rubiera told the deputy he was just getting water and was going to catch a bus home, according to the arrest report. The deputy told Rubiera to head home, got in his patrol car and started doing paperwork when the McDonald’s manager called 911 again.

This time, she said, Rubiera was in the bathroom and masturbating, according to the report.

Two children, who were eating at the restaurant with their mom, went into the bathroom and saw Rubiera, according to the report. They told their mother and she also went into the bathroom, and then complained to the manager.

Rubiera is charged with lewd or lascivious exhibition, and is being held in the Palm Beach County Jail without bail.”

Chairs Fly at Rock n Roll McDonald’s

Video at source. I can’t take this seriously because all that plays in my head is the Wesley Willis song, “Rock n Roll McDonald’s.”

“A quarter pounder will put pounds on you”

From cbs.com:

“(STMW) — A fight broke out in the early hours of Saturday at the well-known Rock ‘n’ Roll McDonald’s in River North, police say.

Cell phone footage — purportedly of the fight — was posted online by an anonymous source later Saturday. It shows a group of men viciously beating another man with an aluminum chair inside what appears to be the tourist hotspot in the 600 block of North Clark, the Sun-Times is reporting.

The distinctive chairs are of a designer style used at the Rock n’ Roll McDonalds, and the restaurant’s escalator can also be seen in the video.

Chicago Police News Affairs Officer Hector Alfaro confirmed that police were called about 1 a.m. to a fight at the restaurant. But police haven’t reviewed the video because “there was minor property damage and no injuries reported, so there is no further ongoing investigation,” Alfaro said.

An unspecified number of people involved in the fight ran away before officers arrived, Alfaro said.

No one was taken to a hospital from the restaurant but there was minor property damage, Alfaro said.

Police said the fight wasn’t connected to another large fight involving at least 30 people at Navy Pier at about 7:45 p.m. Friday evening. Five people were arrested for reckless conduct and a pregnant female was taken to a hospital with non-life threatening injuries after that fight, according police and fire officials.”

Just gotta keep going…

From usatoday.com:

“A Nashville, Tenn., man became so upset about a missing McDouble cheeseburger from his drive-thru McDonald’s order he returned to the restaurant with a pistol, police said.

North Precinct detectives are looking for 21-year-old Demetri Johnson in connection to the Thursday aggravated assault at the restaurant, according to a news release from the Metropolitan Nashville Police Department. His last known address is on Joseph Avenue.

Police said Johnson placed a drive-thru order early Thursday, received his food and pulled away. He drove back through the drive-thru, complained about the missing cheeseburger and the manager asked him to park and said he would bring out the missing sandwich.

The cheeseburger is not part of the eight items McDonald’s is cutting from its menu in select testing locations.
Johnson is accused of walking into the restaurant a few minutes later with a pistol, racking it and demanding that staff fix the order, police said. He and the three women with him also wanted fresh fries and new soft drinks. They left after receiving their food.

Police ask anyone who sees Johnson to contact Crime Stoppers at 74-CRIME.”

Scissor Wielding McDonald’s Customer Wants to Fight Anyone

Please tell me someone told this guy to, “cut it out.”

From thespectrum.com:

“ST. GEORGE – St. George police arrested a 60-year-old New Mexico man Saturday afternoon after he allegedly challenged a manager and another employee of the McDonald’s to a fight and threatened one of them with a pair of scissors, according to a probable cause statement.

Eldy Westergard of Albuquerque faces a misdemeanor charge of threatening with a weapon and an infraction of disorderly conduct, according to the online booking sheet of the Washington County Sheriff’s Office.
Westergard was booked into Purgatory Correctional Facility on $1,950 bail.

Westergard allegedly yelled at the manager at the McDonald’s at 800 E. St. George Boulevard when she confronted him with a complaint from customers about him displaying photos of naked women while he was eating lunch, the statement said.
He then challenged the two women to a fight outside.

Westergard allegedly pulled out the scissors, pointed it at the employee and moved toward her after she said she would not fight him.”

VIDEO LINK: Drunk Girls Arrested for Flipping Out at McDonald’s

Summary: A car full of drunk chicks get out of their vehicle and start smacking on the drive thru window because the McDonald’s staff doesn’t want anything to do with them. They must really want their fast food because they amp up their drunken slurring/yelling quite a bit before talking to the car of guys behind them which they seem to know. The staff calls the cops and of course the car full of drunks start arguing with them (one is even holding a beer and waving it around). Long story short, while extracting the most visibly drunk chick who starts shouting, “I’m pregnant”, it’s sort of unclear whether the cop smacks her head on the ground or she does it herself while flipping out. Either way she’s just passed out on the ground which freaks the guys filming out and they finally drive off.
