A McDonald’s customer was arrested after calling police to complain about his Big Mac hamburger having onions – and challenging the restaurant’s manager to a fist fight. 53-year-old Leslie McDonagh was visiting the fast food chain in Manchester, England, around 10:30 p.m. on a Friday when he claims he received the “wrong meal” that he could not eat because of a “severe allergy” to onions. According to Metro, McDonagh, who had been drinking prior to visiting the McDonald’s, threatened to fight the manager before calling 9-1-1 to report the mixed-up meal. The incident began to escalate when police arrived and asked McDonagh to leave the restaurant. He reportedly fell to the floor and grabbed a police officer’s leg as they attempted to stand him up. He also spit in an officer’s face while they were taking him off the premises. McDonagh was arrested for the incident, which took place December of last year, and recently appeared in court where he pleaded guilty to assault and being drunk and disorderly in public. (

WEIRD NEWS: Brought to you by
It was a scene right out of a bank heist movie. A lone man brandishing a handgun walked into Bangor Savings Bank, located in Maine, on Tuesday morning, robbed the bank, and fled; but no one could have predicted what happened next. He ran across four lanes of traffic on Main Street and into the Ming Lee restaurant parking lot, slipped on the ice, and found himself face-to-face with a special agent for the Maine State Police Computer Crimes Task Force who just happened to be parked in the right place at the right time. The state police special agent, Glenn Lang, had no idea a bank had just been robbed but was suspicious. He got out of his vehicle, tackled the man and took him into custody just about the time city police responded to the report of a bank robbery. The alleged robber, later identified as 37-year-old Jason Mackenrodt, was arrested on charges of robbery and terrorizing and on a probation hold — he was on probation for burglary — and was taken to the Kennebec County jail in Augusta.

MOMENT OF DUH: Brought to you by

For the second time in as many weeks, a Florida Man has been arrested for battering a woman with a burrito. Police charge that 41-year-old Peter Elacqua got into an argument with his girlfriend Friday in their Port Richey residence. After Elacqua allegedly shoved the woman into a chair in their bedroom, he “threw his burrito at the Victim,” striking her in the face with the food item. When a sheriff’s deputy arrived at the home in response to a 9-1-1 call, the woman had “the contents of the burrito dispersed across her face, neck, and left chest/shoulder area.” Elacqua fled the area before cops arrived and refused to return home when contacted on his cell phone. He subsequently “turned his phone off and no further contact was made.” Police eventually caught up with Elacqua yesterday afternoon and arrested him on a misdemeanor domestic battery charge. He was booked into the county jail in advance of a court hearing today. (
