In Lowell, Massachusetts, James Hackett was arrested on charges that he threw hot French fries at his young stepdaughter, who was not named.
Police say Hackett and his wife began arguing after leaving McDonald’s. That's when his stepdaughter entered the verbal fight and Hackett allegedly threw the fries in her face, according to CBS Boston.
As a condition of his bail release, Hackett must stay away from the girl, who was not suriously injured.
Hackett pleaded not guilty to assault with a dangerous weapon, the French fries. He will be back in court in August.
