302-Pound South Carolina Man Busted For Clobbering Burger King Worker With Food Tray In Dispute Over Cold Onion Rings
A South Carolina man has been arrested and charged with disorderly conduct for allegedly striking a Burger King employee in the head with a food tray during a dispute over cold onion rings.
Kristopher Wiggins, 32, was collared last week in connection with the January 29 confrontation at the fast food restaurant in the town of Santee (pop. 955). Free on a $5000 personal recognizance bond, Wiggins is set for a March 20 trial on the misdemeanor charge.
According to police, the 302-pound Wiggins became “loud and boisterous and did throw a food tray and food items” at Burger King worker Framon Frasier, whose glasses were broken when he was clobbered with the tray.
Wiggins’s outburst came after his girlfriend balked at accepting onion rings that were in a warmer “because they would be cold.” Frasier, 34, told cops that he assured the woman he would not serve her cold onion rings. After Wiggins remarked that his girlfriend should be given a refund, Frasier repeated his assurance that the onion rings were warm.
A Santee Police Department report notes that the 5' 11" assailant--believing that his girlfriend had been “disrespectful”--struck Frasier “in the head with a food tray and broke his glasses.”
As part of Wiggins’s release terms, a Municipal Court judge has ordered him not to return to Burger King.
