"I looked at my camera and I thought I may need to record this since there were so few people in the store". Fists flew and so did expletives.
A Florida man spent New Years day in a jail cell after police say he attacked a McDonald's employee for not giving him a straw.
After the attack, the suspect points his finger at the worker demanding she be fired as a manager finished preparing the customer's order.
And then lunged at her and had her by the collar of her McDonald's uniform and pulled her across the counter. This prompts the woman to retort, "No, you're going to jail!"
"The victim was kicked in the stomach by the defendant, and was complaining of pain", police stated in an affidavit.
"I said, this is getting a little heated here", Biandudi recounted. In an instant, he violently grabs her and she goes flying across the counter but she immediately begins to fight back. Investigators also believe that Taylor may have been intoxicated when this incident happened. When the officers arrived, they recognized Taylor from the video at McDonald's and took him into custody.
"Our highest priority is always the safety and well-being of our employees and customers at our restaurants", McDonald's spokesman Khim Aday said in an email.
"She saw the situation escalating and got her phone out", he said. "I want peace. I want them to keep their jobs and the man to get some help".
The video garnered millions of views after Biandudi's children posted it on Facebook and after it was shared by the Atlanta Black Star, an online magazine.
"She had to do it, she was doing, you know she was, she's a petite girl and you know I just felt she did the right thing", said Biandudi.
A McDonald's representative did not respond to specific questions sent by email - including what protocol employees should follow if a customer turns violent - but said instead the company was "fully cooperating" with police.
We're still waiting to learn additional information.
