Man Fined $600 for Hurling Egg McMuffin
0&u=/ap/20050207/ap_on_fe_st/breakfast_sandwich_assault) HOLLAND, Mich. - A
man was fined $600 and put on probation for throwing an Egg McMuffin at a
McDonald's restaurant manager after he said he didn't get what he ordered.
Scott Rodgers, 46, was convicted Thursday of misdemeanor assault and battery.
Besides probation, he was sentenced to three days in a work program and a
fine and is banned from the McDonald's.
Authorities said Rodgers and his 6-year-old son stopped to get four Egg
McMuffins with ham on Oct. 9 but returned to the service window to complain that
at least one of the sandwiches had sausage.
County prosecutor Craig Bunce said that when the shift manager asked him to
give the sandwich back, he threw it through the window at her.
"The manager was picking egg out of her hair," he said.
Rodgers' attorney said he did not throw the sandwich, but rather returned it
