Customer Blinded After McDonald's Employee Attacks Him In Parking Lot


A McDonald's employee will not be loving it when he faces a jury for aggravated assault charges.

An employee of a McDonald's in Chicago is being held by Cook County law enforcement on a $40,000 bail after he allegedly attacked a customer last month.

The victim suffers from irreparable eye damage.

On Feb. 25, Darrel Haynes, 35, was arrested for aggravated battery for lashing out at the victim, according to the Chicago Tribune.

He reportedly got into a heated argument with the customer while working at the register. Haynes then followed the man to a parking lot. The two got into a physical altercation and Haynes reportedly struck the victim in the face several times. These blows resulted in the victim's right eyeball rupturing as well as dislocating his lens. 

The altercation left the victim blind in his right eye and with permanent vision loss.

The victim as well as a witness who saw the events identified Haynes.

Speaking to the Daily Mail Online, the owner of the McDonald's in question said: "Nothing is more important to me than the safety and well-being of my customers and employees. This was an isolated incident, and the individual in question is no longer employed by my organization. We are fully cooperating with the Chicago Police department during their investigation, however, as this is a pending police matter, it would be inappropriate for me to comment further."
