Cops: Man Attacked His Stepdaughter Using McDonald’s French Fries As The Weapon

Throwing things is not nice and you shouldn’t do it, no matter what it is you’re throwing. In this case, a man is facing a felony assault with a dangerous weapon charge for hurling hot McDonald’s french fries at his stepdaughter during an argument.

The Smoking Gun says the Massachusetts man and his wife were fighting about money after her 11-year-old daughter picked up food at the drive-thru of a McDonald’s. According to cops, as the two argued, the girl “began to interject into the argument in an attempt to get the two to stop fighting.”

That upset the man, apparently, who then “picked up the container of French fries he had just purchased, which were hot and oily, and threw it at [the girl], striking her in the face and chest area.”

She wasn’t hurt, but cops noted that “the heat of the oil could cause burning to skin and eyes.”

The man was arrested after his wife called the police to report the incident, and was told while being cuffed that “he was being charged with assault and battery with a dangerous weapon to wit french fry.”

He’s free on bail and appeared in court to plead not guilty to the assault and battery count, and was ordered not to have contact with his stepdaughter.
