Bag full of hamburgers whipped at MacDonald's restaurant manager.

A bag full of hamburgers was the weapon of choice for a McDonald’s customer Friday night who became agitated when his meal wasn’t hot enough.

Saanich police were called to the McDonald’s restaurant at Shelbourne Street and Cedar Hill X Road after the man began causing a scene inside the fast food restaurant.

He had ordered six hamburgers via the drive-thru, but entered the restaurant when he found his food wasn’t to his satisfaction.

The restaurant’s staff cooked up six more burgers for the unhappy customer, but the man spat out his first bite of the freshly cooked food and hurled the bag of burgers at the manager.

“This dispute over the temperature of some hamburgers resulted in charges of assault, for throwing the bag, and also causing a disturbance,” said Sgt. Dean Jantzen.

A 45-year-old Saanich resident was arrested and released with a future court date.

The McDonald’s manager did not suffer any physical injuries from being struck by the bag of burgers.
