McDonald’s Hiring Day Violence
A fight started outside a McDonald’s restaurant in Cleveland, Ohio during the chain’s “National Hiring Day” on Tuesday, leaving four people hospitalized, one person under arrest and another person on the run.
According to reports, the fight began between two women, and spilled out of control when one of the woman involved in the altercation hit at least three people while leaving the scene.
“One girl was on top of the driver, beating her. Then the driver went forward, somehow it kicked into reverse and the car went backwards, hitting three people. It was crazy,” witness Arnecia Patterson told Fox 8 News in Cleveland.
The McDonald’s manager and owner were among the four people taken to the hospital. Reports state that none of the injures suffered are life-threatening.
McDonald’s Hiring Day was held nationwide campaign in thousands of the chain’s restaurants. The company planned to hire 50,000 new workers on Tuesday, and increase it’s workforce by approximately 7 percent.
