Posted: Updated:
YORK, Pa. (WHTM) -

Police have filed charges against a McDonald's customer who allegedly threw a tantrum because his hamburger mistakenly had a piece of cheese on it.

Sean Varone, 35, of Dover, was charged Tuesday with simple assault, disorderly conduct, and criminal mischief, according to Springettsbury Township police.

Police said Varone on November 30 knocked over a trash can and threw a child's high chair before he left the restaurant, then attacked a female employee who followed him to the parking lot to get his license plate number.

The female employee sustained an injury to her leg, and Varone took her phone and threw it across the parking lot before he fled the restaurant in the 300 block of Memory Lane, police said.

Varone was identified as the attacker through information provided by witnesses, police said.

A preliminary hearing was not immediately scheduled.
