Drive thru McDonald’s punch-up caught on mobile phone camera

ALL Ty Jenkin says he wanted was an easy lunch from his favourite fast-food restaurant.

But the 18-year-old claims he got more than a Big Mac when he found himself in an altercation with a woman in the Glenmore McDonald's drive-thru on Saturday afternoon.

Video footage of the attack had yesterday generated nearly 150 "likes" on Facebook.

Ty said the incident started after the woman had taken the right of way as he and his friend entered into the drive-thru.

"She had just cut us off and then as we pull into the drive-thru she shouts 'stupid P-platers', even though she was in the wrong."

Ty said that the woman continued to shout at him and his friend in the vehicle until he reacted to her comments.

The pair allegedly began an expletive-laden argument, with the woman now outside Ty's vehicle.

Ty claims it all escalated when he accused the woman of endangering the lives of her two children by driving dangerously.

"That's when she started laying into me. She got two solid hits into my mouth and she wasn't mucking around," he said.

Ty said that he did raise his fist at the woman as "a natural reaction", but then unclenched and started defending her attempts to land more hits.

"I wouldn't hit a woman. I absolutely despise anybody who does, so I didn't hit her back."

The altercation was filmed by a passenger in a vehicle directly behind the two and was sent directly to Ty who then uploaded it to his Facebook page that evening.

The video sparked frenzy on his page, with more than 100 people commenting on the incident by yesterday afternoon.

The comments were varied, but many people were questioning whether it was appropriate for Ty to defend himself in this situation.

However, due to the quality of the footage, it does not conclusively show that Ty did not hit the woman at any point.

"The video tilts up just as she throws the first punch, so there is a missing piece of evidence which will back up my claims," Ty said.

He said he was seeking CCTV from McDonald's yesterday to back up his side of the story which he would then take to the police to make an official statement against the woman.

Network Moderator's note: Several commenters seem to mistake the word for correlation for causation and are trying to post studies justifying hateful stereotypes. These will be rejected as what they are: obvious trolling.
