VIDEO: Manager at a McDonald’s assaulted on camera

MINNESOTA (WIVB) — A violent attack caught on camera in Minnesota depicted a McDonald’s manager engaged in a fight with a drive-thru customer.

Bystanders watched as a customer attacked the employee through the drive-thru window, but the manager fought back to protect himself.

A witness said the video only tells half the story, however. He said the customer confronted the manager again after the camera stopped recording.

“This is a person who may have been under the influence of substances, who just became irate with the manager at the restaurant and acted out physically,” John Elder, a Minneapolis Police official, said.

The customer is now facing assault charges, and police say the manager is doing okay. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
