SANDUSKY, Ohio (AP) - Police say a dispute over the freshness of french fries got heated at a McDonald's in northern Ohio.
Authorities say a customer refused fries waiting Sunday night in their serving pouches at the restaurant near Sandusky. The manager insisted the fries were fresh.
Police say they were called when the customer said he wouldn't leave until he got different fries. He told officers a McDonald's employee struck him with a mop.
The Sandusky Register reports that a witness said the worker acted only as though he was going to hit the man and said the customer called the employee a derogatory name.
No charges were filed. Police say the man got his money back and left without fries.
