But then, she fought back.

A 41-years-old Daniel Taylor attacked Yasmine James who was serving at the counter for not getting a plastic straw. Taylor was apparently unaware of the restaurant's policy to issue straws to customers only when asked - a policy sparked by the city's new law limiting the use of single-use plastic straws. She permitted them hoping that someone might identify the customer. A middle-aged customer physically assaulted a female employee over plastic straws! The argument started getting heated and there were very few people present at the outlet and hence she chose to record the altercation which might be of some use in future. "They said if they find his body they will let me know".

The video shows the suspect lunging at the worker and grabbing her by the collar while trying to pull her over the counter. She responded with rapid fists of fire in self-defense. Other employees reacted slowly, but the two were eventually separated.

"It was all over a straw", she stated.

The almost one-minute-long video opens to show the man, later identified as Daniel Taylor, 40, arguing with the employee standing behind the counter. Biandudi says after leaving, he came back into the store and yelled at the manager. "We firmly stand with our employees everywhere, including our employees at this restaurant who were involved in this incident". He said there was no such law. Yet it was only when another McDonald's employee intervened, did he let go of the woman.

The whole incident was caught on camera by Brenda Biandudi.

Ukraine marked a historic split from Russian Federation in December when it chose the head of a new national Orthodox church. The move was largely boycotted by Ukraine's biggest church, which is loyal to Russian Federation .

"When the officers arrived, they recognized Taylor from the video at McDonald's and took him into custody", police said in a statement.

However, after police found it hard to find Daniel Taylor, the 41-year-old who attacked Yasmine James, Biandudi's son and daughter posted it on their respective social media accounts.

Subsequently, Taylor was in fact arrested and booked on two counts of battery.

Taylor is being held on a $1,000 bond and was also found to have owed an $11 commissary charge, jail records indicate, according to the Daily Mail.

Our highest priority is always the safety and well-being of everyone in the restaurant, and we do not condone violence of any kind, especially against our employees. Take a look at the video of this fight that is going viral on the internet. I'm grateful that Ms. James has entrusted me with her case; she's not alone in the fight anymore.
