Millions of people visit the golden arches on a regular, if not daily, basis. So it's only natural that a few of them are going to walk through the doors and start some serious fights. Here are the most violent things that've happened to people at a McDonald's while Ronald's back was turned.

What kind of people start fights at McDonald's? These people. From fights in line to people jumping through drive-thru windows to beat up on unsuspecting cashiers, there's plenty of random McDonald's violence to go around on this list of fights at McDonald's.

Some of the McDonald's violence on this list was due to the temperature of the fries, the inability to order an early morning chicken nugget, or just plain random. But when it comes to McDonald's, these people aren't messing around.

    Some Insane Woman On Drugs Needs McNuggets. NOW.

    Ranker Video v

    When you need your nuggets, you need them NOW. This woman is clearly crazy, going so far as to pull open the drive thru window to punch the McDonald's employee who had the misfortune of working the window that morning.

    She does raise a valid question though. Why doesn't McDonald's serve chicken nuggets at 10:30 am?

    Not Lovin' It

    Ranker Video v

    Not all men keep to the code of never hitting women!

    When two women got really mad at their cashier, fighting broke out. The cashier headed for the back of the store and one of the women jumped the counter, going after him. He didn't take her advances lightly and proceeded to beat the living crap out of her with a metal rod.

    And Now For Something Completely Serious... The McDonald's Massacre

    Ranker Video v

    The San Ysidro McDonald's massacre was a killing spree that occurred on July 18, 1984, in a McDonald's restaurant near San Diego, California resulting in 19 injuries and 22 deaths, including that of the perpetrator James Oliver Huberty.

    They actually cut a scene out of the movie Red Dawn where the soldiers eat at a McDonald's specifically because of this incident.

    The shooter's wife went on to sue McDonald's and his former employers because she believed a mixture of McDonald's food and metals from his job had caused him delusion and hysteria. During his autopsy, high traces of metals were found, but no Happy Meals. He also wasn't under the influence of any controlled substances like alcohol/drugs.

    Kinda takes the Twinkie defense to a whole new level.

    Tranny Attack

    Ranker Video v

    If you’re working the drive thru, you’re probably thinking, "How could my life get any worse?" Be careful what you wish for, because on this particular occasion, "worse" means you will be viciously attacked by a gang of pissed off transvestites brandishing a tire iron.

    Why did it happen? Our money's on a horrible mistake between the words "mustard" and "mustache."

    Hey No Cuts

    Ranker Video v

    When this teenage girl took this man's place in line, she probably didn't plan on ordering the Knuckle Sandwich. But that's what she got. We can't see why anyone would hit a young teenage girl for cutting in line anywhere, let alone a McDonald's... or fight over their "food".

    The best part of this clip is the guy in the white shirt on the right who just stands there and watches it all happen. If he had gotten his food by this time, five bucks says he would've been eating it while watching.

    Super-Sized Rage

    Ranker Video v

    Anyone who thinks that McDonald's isn’t addicting will change their mind after seeing this portly gentleman lose his s**t for not getting his chicken sandwich in a timely manner. Skip to 00:36 to see our man go ghetto on an innocent onlooker.

    You can blame it on hypoglycemia if you want, but in five more minutes this man was going to burst through the wall like an unholy cross between the Kool-aid Man and the Hulk's diabetic uncle. That’s not salt on the fries; it’s finely ground crystal meth.

    When you’re at the McDonald's counter, the last thing you expect is to wake up on the ground surrounded by paramedics. Turns out it does happen... to ridiculously old guys for absolutely no reason.

    Skip to 00:22 for the awesome one-hit K.O. and 00:44 for the best soundbite on this list.

    Girls Get Into a Fight Over a Place in Line

    Ranker Video v

    If there's one thing the incidents on this list have taught us, it's that you DO NOT, under ANY circumstances cut in line at a McDonald's. If you do, you'll get punched or slapped - these girls guarantee it.

    She Is Actually Pretty Strong

    Ranker Video v

    This woman's tirade is a slow burn. She starts out yelling at the cashier and holding her hands on her hips for the first 45 seconds.

    Around 00:53, after patiently waiting for the kids in front of her to order, she brings a big bucket to the counter, waits her turn, then tosses it at the cashier. She then proceeds to throw: a yellow caution sign, the napkin holder, and the donation bin... and then finishes her oeuvre de frustration by effortlessly tossing the two cash registers off the counter on her way out.

    She-Hulk Attacks 17 Year-Old at a McDonald's

    Ranker Video v

    A 17 year old was attacked at a London McDonald's by a "green woman," leaving the girl black and blue. Why the woman was dressed as She-Hulk remains a mystery.

    Apparently this insane assault happened after a basketball game. There are about 50 things happening here at once. It's kind of like a Where's Waldo of hitting and kicking, just like Ronald McDonald intended.

    Vandals Burn and Dismember Ronald McDonald

    No, not an actual person. Vandals burned and dismembered a statue of Ronald McDonald. This crazy act of fast food hatred didn't technically take place at a McDonald's restaurant, but the statue was destroyed at a Ronald McDonald House in Burlington, Vermont. Police said there were several nights of Ronald torture, starting with the burning of the statue's face. Later, they came back to decapitate Ronald, and on a third and final night, they sawed off his feet. There were no security cameras outside of the location. The evil vandals are still at large.

    #Picklegate Requires Police Assistance

    There's nothing worse than walking up to the counter, asking for a burger with no pickles, waiting for your delicious pickle-free meal, sitting down with excitement, and biting into a mouthful of disgusting dill. So it's no wonder that a man in Carlsbad, New Mexico threw a fit in a McDonald's after they destroyed his burger by forgetting to leave off the pickles. According to police officers (who were called to the scene when the pickle-hating man became enraged), the customer started yelling at workers and throwing things off of the counter. He was not arrested, but was issued a verbal warning. Take that, pickles.

    Minimum wage and a black eye

    Ranker Video v

    The first rule of McFight club is that you don’t talk about McFight club... or what’s in the secret sauce. It’s not clear what set off this fight between two employees, but it doesn’t matter. In America, we like our violence pointless.
