McDonald’s employee attacked by man over a straw. She fought back

WATCH: White man viciously attacks black McDonald’s worker while her manager passively looks on

A Florida man spent New Years day in a jail cell after police say he attacked a McDonald's employee for not giving him a straw.

According to CNN, a Florida man, Daniel Taylor, became upset when he could not find plastic straws in the fast food chain outlet.

In the video, Daniel Willis Taylor, 40, reached out and grabbed the woman who quickly fought back. In an instant, he violently grabs her and she goes flying across the counter but she immediately begins to fight back. He was charged with two counts of simple battery.

"He was yelling and walking toward the counter and the young lady behind the counter told him that it's the law now that we're not allowed to have straws in the lobby", she told the news website.

The video sparked responses on Twitter with some demanding that McDonald's act on the issue. "He just started flipping out and cursing me out". "But she had no idea there was going to be a fight as big as that". He reportedly kicked another employee in the stomach on his way out.

Bentil said the motive behind the attack is still under investigation. He also said he couldn't remember what actually happened, and at one point couldn't even say if it had happened at McDonald's. She soon returned, knowing someone behind the counter had called police, and stayed in case officers wanted to review the video she had taken.

A McDonald's representative did not respond to specific questions sent by email - including what protocol employees should follow if a customer turns violent - but said instead the company was "fully cooperating" with police.

"I was thinking that she had to do what she was doing", offered Brenda Biandudi, who shot the now-viral video. It has since collected over 3.3 million views and 67,000 shares on Facebook.

By then, the belligerent customer was verbally accosting the manager - a part of the incident she didn't capture on camera, she said. "I want peace. I want them to keep their jobs and the man to get some help. You know, I know how to protect myself", she was quoted as saying. "We all need to learn how to talk to people in public and show them some respect".
