Man hits drive-through worker with food

Dec. 7, 2011 at 3:00 AM

HOLIDAY, Fla., Dec. 7 (UPI) -- Florida authorities said a man accused of hitting a McDonald's employee in the head with a bag of food was found passed out in his driveway.

The Pasco County Sheriff's Office said Todd Rogers, 30, went through a McDonald's drive-through in Holiday with his girlfriend, who was driving, shortly after midnight Sunday and returned a few minutes later when they found they were missing a drink, the St. Petersburg Times reported Tuesday.

Rogers, who deputies said was extremely intoxicated, screamed obscenities at a 22-year-old woman working at the McDonald's and poked her, causing her to step back, investigators said. Rogers then allegedly threw a bag of food at the woman, striking her in the head. He threw a second bag of food when the woman closed the window, the arrest report states.

Deputies said they found Rogers sleeping in a Buick in his driveway. He was arrested on a charge of simple battery.

"I hit her in the ... head with a bag of food, so what?" Rogers allegedly told deputies.

"I deserve to go to jail," the report quotes him as saying. "I don't care."
