It makes sense that most of the restaurant food fights we see are worker vs. customer, but it is kind of surprising that with all that perfectly good weaponry just hanging around that we don’t see more worker on worker disagreements end that way. But here’s one.
Spartanburg cops were called to a Taco Bell Monday afternoon after employee Christopher Dalton got into a dispute with Patricia Keeley, his manager.
Keeley told an officer that Dalton was upset over his work schedule and “was getting into several verbal disputes with other coworkers.” Keeley said that when she told Dalton to “stop being a crybaby,” he exploded.
Dalton allegedly “slung” a burrito at Keeley, who told police that “the melted cheese got all over her left arm and went all down her left side and leg.” Keeley added that the airborne burrito “made a mess of the entire kitchen as well, getting cheese over all the appliances.”
Before storming out of the fast food restaurant, Dalton “took off his headset and broke it on his knee and threw it on the ground, causing it to break into several pieces.”
Dalton, who at least won’t have to worry about which shift he’s on for a while, was later arrested and charged with assault and battery and malicious damage.
