The 16 Most Violent Things That Have Happened at McDonald's

Millions of people visit the golden arches on a regular, if not daily, basis. Given the sordid violence inherent to the human condition, it's only natural that some of those walking through the doors of McDonald's have a predilection for conflict. Here are the most violent things that've happened to people at a McDonald's.

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 crap that pissed people off. But when it comes to McDonald's, these people aren't messing around.

    And Now for Something Completely Serious: The McDonald's Massacre

    Video: YouTube

    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.

    When a teenage girl took a man's place in line, she probably didn't plan on ordering the Knuckle Sandwich. But that's what she got. Note the guy in the white shirt on the right who just stands there and watches it all happen.

    Super-Sized Rage

    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. But sucker punches do happen.
