McDonald’s corporate offices and the East Point location both declined to comment.
The East Point Police Department was called to the restaurant, located at 834 Cleveland Ave.
Kindell told them she retaliated by throwing the items after Lee was “very rude,” used obscene language and threw a bottle at her, according to an incident report. Lee disputed this, telling police she used profanity towards him, had a “very bad attitude” and threw the items at him.
The store supervisor showed police video of the incident. There was no audio, but police said it showed Kindell throwing the items, and a bottle on the floor that “could have possibly been thrown by” Lee after Kindell initiated the incident.
Kindell was charged with criminal trespass and simple battery.
The store manager refunded Lee’s money, the incident report says.
The lawsuit claims McDonald’s was negligent in keeping the establishment safe, providing adequate security and hiring Kindell.
Lee seeks a judgement in excess of $250,000.
Kindell and Goodrum Enterprises, doing business as McDonald’s Corporation, are listed as the defendants.
