Officers said Robert Quillen, 45, went to the restaurant in Perkins to get fries for his wife and became upset when employees took the fries from the side catch basin, where the food is kept after being put into serving pouches, the Sandusky (Ohio) Register reported Tuesday.
Police said Quillen demanded fresh fries and Manager Sean Rine told him the fries were fresh and offered to refund his money. However, Quillen told the manager he was not leaving without fresh fries and employees called police.
Quillen told officers an employee hit him in the arm with a mop, but a witness said Quillen called the worker a derogatory name and the employee did not actually hit the customer.
Police said no charges were filed due to the conflicting stories they received. Officers said Quillen left the McDonald's with his money refunded and no fries.
