    Default McDonald's manager punches mom with service dog

    ATLANTA (AP) — A McDonald's manager in the Atlanta area is accused of punching a mother after she brought her autistic children and a service dog inside the restaurant, authorities said.

    Tiffany Denise Allen is charged with simple battery, simple assault and disorderly conduct, according to a Cobb County warrant.

    Jennifer Schwenker entered the McDonald's in Marietta with her twins and service dog on July 12. Allen, who was off-duty at the time, became angry that the dog was inside, the warrant states. Police say Allen followed the mother around the restaurant, then punched her in the face in the parking lot.

    Surveillance video shows McDonald's employees trying to restrain their co-worker, police wrote in the warrant.

    J.M. and Jan Owens, who operate the store on Bells Ferry Road, said they're cooperating with police.

    "At our McDonald's restaurant, we respect and value our customers. Their safety and well-being is always a top priority," they said in a statement to The Associated Press.

    "We strive to comply with all applicable laws, including the Americans with Disabilities Act," they said. "It is our policy to make our restaurants accessible to all customers, including those with disabilities and special needs, whether or not they need the assistance of service animals."

    A phone listing for Allen could not be located. McDonald's officials say that she is no longer employed by the Oak Brook, Ill.-based company.

    Your thread headline is the headline I am seeing around online. "McDonald's manager punches mom with service dog". Who edits these things?

    Did he pick up a dog and punch her with it? Was it his mom?

    Here's what I don't get.
    First, assume that the McDonald's manager's perception of the situation is absolutely correct. Then I'll put myself in her shoes.

    If I'm that McDonald's manager, here's what I see: A rude woman and her two kids bring a dog into my store. I ask them to leave the dog outside and the woman goes crazy and throws her drink at me.

    There's no way that my reaction to that provocation is to punch her in the face.

    How do you get from "crazy person in my restaurant" to "punch her in the face?" Myself, I'd try "call the police," before I'd try "punch her in the face."

    Maybe it's just me, but I have to go pretty far down my list of options before I get to "punch in the face."

    I guess I don't have what it takes to be a McDonald's manager.

    Since we have an Americans with Disabilities Act, can we get an Americans with Sensibilities Act??

    Sensible people don't need an act.

    Not that any of this is justified but it's a pretty big coincidence that she just happened to "drop" her drink such that the person who was giving her a hard time got hit.

    As far as the off duty manager, why didn’t she just get the manager who was on duty to handle it? It seems strange that she would follow the person around the restaurant, appearing to be very aggressive. This lady was acting like that woman brought the dog into her house.

    it's more than just pickle placement I guess....after seeing a few of those videos online, I have come to believe that some McDonalds managers might be suffering from PTSD...I suppose that if you get to the point where you can handle these situations at McDonalds without going ballistic, you are ready to work at Chuckie Cheese

    I was driving my 7-year-old son to his friend's house for a birthday party a few weeks ago. I asked him if they were going to go somewhere fun like Chuckie Cheese.

    "I hope not," he said. "Chuckie Cheese makes you violent."

    if the dog had its service jacket on (no idea if it did), then they can not even legally ask them to remove the dog.

    My sister has service dogs (SAR) they get a free seat on a plane even.

    Well we all know that. But that big bitch went all ape shit on her ass. I'm sure the now ex mgr will get a pay day from Mc Donalds and she will be set for life. I like how she threw down her own child on the counter just to go after the women. Stay classy ex mgr...stay classy. Out.
