A former McDonald’s manager from Georgia who allegedly punched a mother because she brought a dog in the restaurant has been arrested in New Hanover County.
Tiffany Denise Allen, 5, was arrested Monday and taken to the New Hanover County jail, where she remains. She is listed as a fugitive from justice.
She faces charges of simple battery, simple assault and disorderly conduct in Cobb County, Ga., according to Detective Gwen Lewis, a spokeswoman for the Marietta Police Department.
Allen’s charges stem from an incident at a Marietta McDonald’s on July , according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
The newspaper, citing an arrest warrant, reported that a woman entered a McDonalds with her autistic children and a service dog.
Allen, who was not working, became angry the dog was in the restaurant. The mother said the dog was legally allowed to be there, but Allen reportedly followed her into a bathroom and tried to argue with her.
When one of the mother’s children walked away, the mother ran outside after her. Allen allegedly followed the woman outside and hit her in the face. The warrant stated other McDonald’s employees held Allen back after the alleged assault.
The owner of the McDonald’s told the Journal-Constitution that Allen no longer works at the restaurant. It is unclear what brought Allen to Wilmington.
