In a freak incident at a McDonald’s store, a cashier was allegedly slapped in the face by a customer for offering him a free cup of water.
Another employee, also a woman, was attacked while trying to defend her employee, Fox News reported.
Fox News quoted Local 12 as the physical battle started when the 44-year-old male suspect asked for a cup of water.
The cashier gave him the water – which normally costs 32 cents – for free because the system was out of order.
However, in a bizarre turn of events, the customer was annoyed by the friendly gesture and tried to give her a $ 100 bill.
When the cashier refused the money, she was reportedly slapped in the face several times until she fell to the floor.
Her colleague, who tried to intervene, was also physically attacked.
Before escaping, the suspect threw a cookie jar at the cashier, who luckily missed her target.
The man was later arrested by the police and charged with assault and possession of drug supplies.
