The natural progress of things is for liberty to yield and government to gain ground. —THOMAS JEFFERSON, 1788

What gives with Mickey D’s anyway? Their slogan used to be “You deserve a break today.” “Have it your way.” So when Cherysse Cleveland of Ravenna, Ohio, requested (demanded?) that her slushie be concocted with three flavors and was informed by the manager that her wish could not be granted, she decided to take matters into her own hands. But when she went behind the counter to mix her own beverage and encountered opposition, things began to escalate out of control. It was at this point that Brian Allen, another customer, began recording.

“I was concerned that she may start hurting somebody,” Allen told station WOIO. “So, I started recording in case law enforcement needed the tape for any kind of evidence of the assault.”

The video follows. (Warning: Graphic profanity and violence)

Initially, the manager tried to diffuse the situation only to receive a punch to the jaw by Cleveland, who she then ordered to leave the store. Cleveland agreed to leave after she obtained a cup of ice, which she proceeded to do. But instead of exiting, she walked over to the counter and flung the ice at an employee, who tackled Cleveland and began pummeling her in the face. It was at this point that the police, who had been called, helped Cleveland to her feet and applied the bracelets.

She has since been charged with two counts of misdemeanor assault. Cleveland was in court on Tuesday where she pleaded not guilty … which speaks volumes. Bond has been set at $1,000.
