A man has been charged with assault after a witness captured him punching a woman in the face at a McDonalds drive thru

Brittani Thomas, the woman who was punched, said the altercation was about who should go first in the double-drive-thru line.

Thomas said, “I was telling him sir it was just Mcdonalds it’s just McDonalds, everybody’s going to get their food – and he took it way out of hand”

She said the punch gave her some pain and swelling in her right cheek, but mostly confusion over the rage for fast food.
