A McDonalds cashier Rayon McIntosh, swapped Happy Meals for jail fare after an ugly fast-food fight says he was jumped by a foul-mouthed customer who threatened to cut him up.
He said he only smacked the woman and her friend with a metal bar after they jumped the counter and attacked him.
“I was not looking for trouble,” said McIntosh, 31, wearing a crisp gray jail outfit. “The trouble found me. People are portraying me as a vicious attacker.
“I was just working at my job when I was attacked for no reason. I’m not a heartless person.” The confrontation started when they ordered and and paid their check with a $50 bill.
One of the women became outraged when McIntosh checked to see if the bill was real, as required by store policy.
“She said, ‘Oh, you think my s–t is fake?’ … She started saying, ‘Suck my d–k.’ She called my mother a whore.”
The woman then spat at McIntosh, threatening to “cut me up,” “Then she came over the counter and slaps me.”
When the second woman jumped the counter to join in, McIntosh said his instinct for self-preservation kicked into high gear.
