McDonald’s employee attacked over a straw

A disturbing video has gone viral of a white man at McDonald's attacking a Black female employee in St. Petersburg, Florida on New Year's Eve.

Daniel Taylor spent New Year's Day in jail charged with simple battery and witnesses say it all started because of this.

Taylor grabbed employee Yasmine James by the shirt collar and pulled her onto the counter.

The 55 second video showcases the man suddenly clawing and pulling the cashier towards him in aggressive leap, and the cashier raining him with repeated punches to loosen his grip.

Before leaving, Taylor kicked another McDonald's employee, Tateona Bell, in the stomach as she stood by the door, police said.

"He was yelling and walking toward the counter and the young lady behind the counter told him that it's the law now that we're not allowed to have straws in the lobby", she told the news website.

"I want her ass fired right now", the suspect says in the video as a manager reads his receipt while other workers clean the mess from the fight. The employee told Taylor that straws were prohibited from being placed out near the condiments and that he could only get one after requesting one from an employee behind the counter.

The cut was mainly due to weak outlook for the iPhone XS Max , analyst William Yang said in a research note. Hillard then ventured off to his local Apple Store to inquire about fix or replacement of the iPhone .

"The defendant was a customer at McDonald's, and the victim is an employee". After this fight, he came back and went behind the counter & tried to fight the manager.

"No, you're going to jail!" the woman shouts back at him. "The guy left before the cops arrived".

That's when Taylor reached over the counter, police said. He reportedly kicked another employee in the stomach on his way out.

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

"They started exchanging words laced with profanity and he said there's no such law that exists and she was saying yes it is a law", said Biandudi.

A representative of the St Petersburg Police Department told Yahoo Lifestyle that the security tape is not being released at this stage of the investigation.
