A McDonald’s customer at a restaurant in Florida allegedly attacked an employee after his order “took too long” to prepare.

Daniel Suarez-Tellez was charged with aggravated assault following the incident in which he is accused of growing frustrated with the wait for six McChicken burgers.

The 21-year-old, who reportedly paid a $3,500 bond and was released from the Broward County jail on Wednesday, allegedly attacked the manager of the restaurant.

CCTV reportedly shows him pulling up to the drive-thru on State Road 84 near Interstate 75 in Davie, at around 10:45 p.m on Monday.

Police said Suarez-Tellez was captured on camera walking to the front door of the restaurant.

The suspect is said to have complained that the staff were taking too long with his order.

Footage obtained by WSVN 7 News Miami showed a fight breaking out between a man outside the restaurant and a female staff member. At one point, the employee’s arm appears to become trapped in the door.

A metal object used for compacting the trash and a “wet floor” cone were shown being used during the altercation.

The video also showed the employee’s co-workers running to her aid and pushing the door open.

During the altercation, the customer’s food was thrown on the floor. A short time later, footage showed a car leaving the restaurant.

Sara Allen, manager of the McDonald’s, told Local 10 News: “He went to arguing and yelling at me. He went to pushing the door on me as I am giving the bag to his friend.

“I’m like, ‘Sir, why are you doing this?’ And he is like, ‘Y’all took too long with my food.’

“Over six McChickens and a large fries, that was not called for.”

Local 10 News reported that the judge ordered Suarez-Tellez not to return to the drive-thru in Davie. He is due back in court in a few weeks.

Jermaine Harp, another restaurant employee, told WSVN: “He pulled up to the drive-thru to get his order.

“He was a little bit upset during the time, speaking to the manager, so [she] told him, ‘Park your car because the lobby is locked at the time. We close at 10 o’clock.’

“The dude, I guess he was upset about his food.

“It took long or something, and he tried to open the door, and she tried to pull the door back, and he ended up pushing the door on her arm, so she was injured.”

The Liberty Buzz contacted the Davie Police Department for comment.
