A man reportedly cussed at a juvenile female fast-food worker and later sent his sons through the drive-through to use more profanity.
The alleged incident occurred recently at a fast-food restaurant on Hwy. 124. The man reportedly said “$%& you” to the juvenile female who was working the drive-through after she told him his order couldn’t be taken due to staffing shortages.
According to the incident report, the worker said “you too” in response, thinking the man said “have a good day.” The response prompted the man to reportedly enter the store to confront management about he juvenile. When the juvenile approached, the man reportedly told her that he would “knock the $@&# out of her” if she were a man.
After the man left, restaurant staff said the man sent his sons back around through the drive-through to cuss at them through the speaker.
Fearing for staff safety, the restaurant manager locked the business until a deputy arrived. Restaurant workers did not press charges, fearing retaliation, according to the incident report.
