Burger King Customer Dies After Being Punched In Face By Employee

Earlier today, a fight broke out between an employee at a Detroit Burger King and a 67-year-old customer. In the end, one man was behind bars and the other was dead.

According to the Detroit News:

During the fight, the worker delivered a punch that may have caused the man to choke on his dentures, police said. The unidentified victim died at a hospital.

“The victim fell to the floor,” a police sergeant said. “He was conveyed to a hospital and pronounced dead.”

Police say it’s not yet clear what caused the fight to break out in the first place. A rep for BK says the company is cooperating with authorities in the investigation.
