The reason? She had reportedly told him that restaurant policy was to keep straws behind the counter. He noticed there were no plastic straws, got upset and began berating the cashier, stated Biandudi narrating that the cashier was a black female employee who tried to mollify the situation. The video of the fight was uploaded by a customer named Brenda Biandudi on her Facebook account and soon it went crazily viral. He was eventually arrested and charged with two counts of simple battery. "And I want her ass fired right now", said the man, identified by police as Daniel Willis Taylor, 40. A complete ban on single-use plastic straws takes effect in January 2020. The video also appeared to show that the manager initially took the customer's side, re-checking his order and asking him what he wanted after the attack.

The McDonalds employee very quickly fights back however, laying punch after punch in to the man, with other staff joining in shortly after to try to separate the two.

St. Petersburg, Florida, recently implemented a city ordinance barring restaurants from providing plastic straws unless customers ask for them. James nearly staggered. After about 15 seconds, another McDonald's employee came to James rescue and pulled her out of the grip of the accused.

James believes she is getting paid while on leave however McDonald's has not yet confirmed this information. "You're going to jail", Yasmine responds. Several employees and customers saw the incident, and police say it was captured on video.

That's when Taylor reached over the counter, police said.

"They started exchanging words laced with profanity, and he said there's no such law that exists and she was saying yes it is a law", Biandudi further confirmed.

Police say on his way out, Taylor also assaulted another employee in the stomach. Unfortunately for him, the young woman knew how to box, according to Kinie Biandudi, who shared video of the altercation. "We have been in contact with the police department and are fully cooperating with their investigation", McDonald's said in a statement.

Officers arrested Taylor shorty after when they received a call about an unarmed robbery nearby and recognized him from the video, police said.
