Default Assault with a deadly french fry?!

Assault with a deadly french fry? Well, if the fries are as solid as the ones I've had from McDonald's, maybe there is some validity to the charges.

Dad charged with assault for tossing McDonald’s fries at stepdaughter


By Eric Pfeiffer, Yahoo! News | The Sideshow – 8 hrs ago



Do these fries look dangerous? (Richard Vogel/AP)

James Hackett, 26, is facing a felony assault charge after allegedly throwing an order of "hot and oily" McDonald's french fries at his 11-year-old stepdaughter, according to a Lowell, Massachusetts, police report posted on The Smoking Gun.

Interestingly, the report states that the unnamed girl was not harmed in the incident but states the action "could cause burning to skin and eyes." What is surprising in the report is how much more mature the 11-year-old girl sounds than her mother and Hackett. After stopping by McDonald's, the couple were reportedly arguing about money in the car when the girl "began to interject into the argument in an attempt to get the two to stop fighting."

This was apparently too much for Hackett to handle, who then allegedly "picked up the container of french fries he had just purchased, which were hot and oily, and threw it at [the girl], striking her in the face and chest area."

After making it back home, Hackett reportedly "fled the residence on an old Honda motorcycle."

His wife then called the police, who tracked down Hackett and arrested him.

When Lowell Police Officer Richard Cesarz detained Hackett, The Smoking Gun reports that Hackett was informed "he was being charged with assault and battery with a dangerous weapon to wit french fry."

Hackett appeared in District Court on Monday and pleaded not guilty to the assault and battery count. He is currently free on bail and faces a pretrial conference on August 10.

I once cut the inside of my mouth with the pointy end of a McDonalds french fry. They ARE dangerous! He could have put her eye out!

Including that he was charged for assault? I'm not sure how I feel about the assault charges, I really gotta think about it.

The father sounds like an idiot who can't control his temper. It would only have taken a tiny bit of hot oil getting inside the girl's eye to cause permanent vision damage.

Was she a red head? That could make all the difference in the world.
