MINNEAPOLIS — A brutal fight between a customer and an overnight manager at McDonald’s is caught on camera.

According to WCCO, the fight happened early Tuesday morning in the drive-thru in northern Minneapolis.

McDonald’s employees and witnesses told police the attack was unprovoked.

A person waiting in line at the McDonald’s recorded video that shows the store manager, 22-year-old Barnard Robinson III, fighting with a customer for more than a minute.

Witnesses say the customer was trying to pull Robinson out of the window by his tie.

Robinson told WCCO that the customer, 31-year-old Walied Feshir, was pulling his tie so tight that he thought he would black out.

Robinson’s family told KMSP that Feshir became angry when it took too long for a cashier previously working the window to make change for a $100 bill and then dropped some of the cash on the ground.

“The guy just got irate and spit on my son’s face,” the store manager’s father told KMSP. “Then he went to grab at him and he grabbed at my son’s tie. My son was trying to grab back at him and he had to put the quarter pounders on him to get him off him.”

When police arrived, they said Feshir smelled like alcohol.

Feshir was taken to the hospital for minor injuries. Robinson declined treatment.

Police say Feshir was cited for fifth-degree assault.
