Most restaurants serve beverages immediately to keep customers occupied while waiting for their food. But following an incident at a South Carolina fast food restaurant, eateries might want to rethink that long-standing tradition. Police say an “obnoxious” drive-thru customer at a Camden McDonald’s threw a cup of hot coffee in a teenage employee’s face — because she wouldn’t give him free french fries to compensate him for his wait. Although the unidentified employee declined medical treatment, Camden police have launched a manhunt for the coffee thrower. They’ve released surveillance footage to local news outlets in an attempt to determine his identity. Should the coffee thrower be charged with assault? What’s your worst fast food horror story?
