Customer burns McDonald's employee with hot coffee after it was too watery: police

A customer at a McDonald's in Tennessee has been arrested on assault charges after he allegedly burned an employee on Thursday morning with hot coffee because it was too watery, police say.

After purchasing a coffee at a Nashville McDonald's on Broadway near Interstate 40, Charles Prince reportedly determined that his cup of joe was too watery and simply not strong enough.

Upset over the situation, a witness told police that Prince purposefully knocked over the large cup of coffee and spilled it over the counter. The hot liquid subsequently poured on a female employee's arm, who had visible burn marks in the process.

He was booked into the Nashville Metro jail on Thursday but has since been released on a $1,500 bond.

Back in February, an angry customer at a Cleveland Macdonald's was arrested for assault after he threw two hot coffees in the face of a worker because the employee handed him two when he only ordered one. The employee was rushed to the hospital with first-degree burns on her neck and shoulder.
