Entitled Woman Assaults McDonald's Employees for Refusing Her Special Request, But Watch Them Fight Back

An Ohio woman has been charged with two counts of misdemeanor assault after her attacks on two female McDonald’s employees were caught on video.

Cherysse Cleveland, 44, was arrested at a McDonald’s restaurant in Ravenna, Ohio, on Monday morning after she was captured on video punching the store manager and another worker amid frustration that she wasn’t allowed to mix flavors of her slushie, according to police.

Brian Allen, the customer who filmed the video, told WOIO-TV on Tuesday that he began filming the argument on his cellphone once it started escalating.

“I was concerned that she may start hurting somebody. So, I started recording in case law enforcement needed the tape for any kind of evidence of the assault,” he explained.

Allen shared the shocking video on Facebook, where it quickly went viral.

WARNING: The following video contains vulgar language that some viewers may find offensive.

According to Allen, the brawl started because of a disagreement over a McDonald’s slushie.

“I heard her ask for a slushie with all three flavors mixed into one,” he told WOIO. “Whereupon the manager informed her that they could not do that, and she became increasingly irritated and combative and decided that she would go behind the counter and fix her own drink.”

During the harrowing incident, the woman identified as Cleveland walked behind the counter to argue with the McDonald’s worker who was taking her order.

The employee was heard repeatedly warning the suspect, “Do not touch me.”

The store manager tried to de-escalate the situation by stepping between her employee and the woman, who reacted by slugging her in her left jaw.

Astonishingly, the manager stayed calm and simply ordered her to leave the store.

The woman identified as Cleveland yelled back and told the manager that she should get out.

She then walked over to the beverage station to fill a cup with ice.

Afterward, the woman walked back behind the counter again and threw the cup of ice at the employee with whom she had argued earlier and began hitting her.

The worker then pushed the woman down to the ground, pummeled her and yanked her wig.

Police arrived and arrested her. To her credit, the woman did not resist arrest, which meant she missed out on the chance to become the left’s latest anti-police icon.

Cleveland was released from jail on Wednesday after pleading not guilty the previous day.

Her demeanor in court was a stark contrast to the hostile attitude she had displayed during her McDonald’s scuffle.

The judge ordered Cleveland not to return to that McDonald’s location and to not have any contact with the employees she had fought.

The customer/witness who filmed the incident praised the McDonald’s employees for their incredible restraint.

“If I was in their shoes, I wouldn’t have been able to show the restraint they did,” Allen told WOIO. “You can see from the video that several times, not just once, she physically assaults and or pushes them. And they don’t do anything except for to try to protect themselves. And you can clearly hear the one employee trying to protect her boss as well. I think they both did outstanding jobs.”

Allen said it’s a shame that minor disagreements over something small escalate so quickly these days.

“I don’t see anybody having to take abuse like that,” he said. “I think the lesson is just to treat people the way that we want to be treated, and I don’t see that a lot in the world anymore.”

Sadly, this incident is illustrative of the powder keg we live in today. People coming to blows over an inconsequential matter like a slushie is not the society we should aspire to or condone.

Unfortunately, these events are becoming increasingly common, and we’re becoming desensitized to senseless violence and cruelty every day.

Off-Duty Firefighter Jumped by Mob Who Tell Him It's 'Fight Night' Before Brutal Beating

Asking for a little old-fashioned respect can be the prelude to a beatdown in Mayor Bill de Blasio’s New York City. The New York Post has released video of a Friday night incident in which a rabid mob of teenagers surrounded and then attacked an off-duty firefighter as he walked his dog near his home in the borough of Queens. Republican mayoral candidate Curtis Sliwa, who founded the civic protection group the Guardian Angels in 1979, posted the video to Twitter. Warning: The following video contains graphic images and language that some readers will find disturbing. Last night in Middle Village a mob of kids attacked a man who asked them to stop blasting fireworks. #NYPD from the 104th precinct were there but did nothing. The community reached out to #NYC Mayoral candidate #CurtisSliwa & the #GuardianAngels to find these vicious teens pic.twitter.com/uVJkBUJ0L1 — Curtis Sliwa for NYC Mayor (@CurtisSliwa) July 24, 2021 The 44-year-old victim, whose name was not released by the Post, said he is among those who have objected to the deterioration of his community,  and taken the dangerous stand of telling teenagers to behave as if rules really mattered. Retribution for preaching civility arrived Friday night. “There were at least 100 kids … I was walking my dog. They just picked me out and approached me,” the firefighter told the Post in a Saturday interview. “One kid took his shirt off and said, ‘it’s fight night!’ He said he was 19 and said, ‘I could fight you.’ Everyone took their cell phones out. There were cell phones everywhere,” the victim said. “They all came at me…A kid came up behind me and hit me in the back of the head with a bottle and I let go of the dog,” he said. With the dog barking…

Olympic Cyclist Celebrates Victory as She Crosses the Finish Line, Then Learns a Gold Medal Isn't Coming

Neither the gold medal winner nor the woman who celebrated when she thought she had won could quite believe the results of the women’s Olympic bicycle road race on Sunday. Dutch rider Annemiek van Vleuten put on a massive gold medal-worthy display of victory as she crossed the finish line. But there was one catch. Anna Keisenhofer of Austria had been so far ahead of the rest of the pack that two minutes before van Vleuten had celebrated her finish, Keisenhofer had already had won the race,  according to Cycling News. Van Vleuten waved her arms in triumph and embraced members of her team, only to learn the truth after someone knowing the facts poured cold water on the celebration.

I was wrong. I didn’t know,” she said. “This is an example (of what happens) if you ride an important race like this without communication. All World Tour races have communication, and now it’s the three of us standing here and wondering who has actually won,” van Vleuten said, referring to teammates Marianne Vos and Anna van der Breggen, according to CNN. In most races, cyclists are in radio communication with their teams, but that is not allowed in the Olympics. “I’m gutted about that, of course,” she said. Although the realization that she had not won a gold medal hurt, van Vleuten said winning a silver medal remained an achievement. “I’m really proud of the medal, because I did not have an Olympic medal. It’s also a silver medal with a shine on it, because I felt super good today,” said van Vleuten. “My goal was to be at my best-ever level here, and I think I nailed that. It’s…
