A brawl broke out between a local McDonald’s employee and a customer, and the video of the escalated fight is going viral on social media.
Alfredo Sanchez, who recorded the incident, told KFOX14 the fight started over some french fries. He said the incident happened at about 11:30 p.m. Sunday night at the McDonald’s location on Montana Avenue and George Dieter Drive in El Paso, Texas.
“We were eating and, all of a sudden, like, I hear my friend say, like, what the heck,” said Sanchez. “And like, I see a guy come in with a big dog. He’s telling the people, like, I waited two hours for my fries.”
Sanchez said the unidentified man was irate over an issue about his food order, and that the man swiped a cookie display off the restaurant’s counter and started threatening an employee.
“The guy takes off his shirt and he’s ready to fight him, ready to fight, jumps over the counter and that’s when he hits the guy,” he said. “He just punches him, right here, right on the lip. The employees were already trying to stop the guy and it was just, kind of, a mess. I was, like, I’m not getting in this, but I’m recording, just for proof, to protect me, too. What if the guy attacks me? What if the dog does something?”
The El Paso Police Department confirmed officers were called in to investigate the situation. “Finally, the cops get there and they just, kind of, get him,” said Sanchez. “They take him outside and another cop car comes in.”
Police said no one was arrested. The investigation is still on-going.
“I didn’t believe it was happening,” said Sanchez. “I’ve never experienced anything like it.”
