Man arrested after 'assaulting McDonald's worker in dispute over straw'

A female McDonald's employee who threw a volley of punches at a violent homeless man who lunged at her and yanked her shirt has been identified as a former boxer. James attempted to defend herself by punching Taylor in the face.

The St Petersburg City Council voted last month to ban plastic straws by 2020, beginning with a grace period in 2019 in which customers must specifically request plastic straws at city businesses. And, most recently, she has taken up the case of Michael Taylor, a 17-year-old Winter Haven boy who was shot and killed by police in a Lakeland restaurant's parking lot when he was accused of attempting to ram officers.

A fight broke out NYE between a McDonald's employee and customer.

Then to the manager, Taylor says, "You're going to give me a goddamn refund". Taylor escaped before police arrived, but was later apprehended. "The defendant kicked the victim in the stomach while she was standing near the exit door".

The whole incident was caught on camera by Brenda Biandudi.

She also represented the families of three St. Petersburg girls who died after driving a stolen auto into a pond during a police chase.

"She needs to keep her job and I seriously hope she will".

"People need to treat others the way they want to be treated", Biandudi stated regarding the attack.
