«Customers felt their order was incorrect. The employee argued with the customers through the service window and threw a drink at them as they attempted to leave,» stated the Lakeland Police Department.

Security cameras at McDonald’s captured the entire early morning incident on June 14, allowing officers to detail what occurred.

Two of the customers exited their vehicle, opened the window, took some cups and utensils from the store, and threw them at the employees.

This is shown in two videos released on Facebook by the Lakeland police.
