Hot Fudge Sundae Could Send Offender to Jail

Hot Fudge Sundae Could Send Offender to Jail

Posted By Parks & Braxton || 23-Aug-2012

An angry customer at a Knoxville, Tennessee McDonalds may end up in jail after his argument with an employee at the fast food restaurant got out of hand. The Huffington Post reports that the man faces up to $1,000 in fines and 364 days in jail for his actions. James Wilson told the jury at his trial that he was excited about his hot fudge sundae, but expected the fudge to be on the top. In his own words “the hot fudge should be on top. It freezes when you get fudge on the bottom.” The mistake apparently made Wilson very angry, and he punched the cashier at the restaurant.

Wilson says that he threw his fist in self-defense after the employee allegedly followed him out of the store and charged at him while making racial comments. Yet the customer was twice the size of the assistant manager he offended, and courts were skeptical of his story. Debates like this are often trivial, but can carry serious consequences. If you have been involved in a brawl, or punched an innocent victim out of anger, then you could also end up with a jail sentence and fines to pay. Yet with a professional criminal defense lawyer, you may be able to avoid your charges.
