Police Kick Good Samaritan Out Of McDonald's For Buying Homeless Meal

Police Kick Good Samaritan Out Of McDonald's For Buying Homeless Meal”

A McDonald's customer says that he was kicked out of the restaurant by a police officer after he bought a meal for a homeless man to eat in the restaurant. It has received more than 54 million views.

The man filming can be heard telling the McDonald's staff that they "suck" for kicking a homeless man out of the restaurant, which ultimately leads to a restaurant manager telling the man filming he also has to leave for being "disorderly".

"I started crying, I was very upset", Owens told WACH. I don't think she did anything wrong.

According to a press release, the homeless man was in the parking lot asking people for money.

"When things got out of hand was when the person shooting the video became irate with her and it's her job to get stern when someone is threatening her and speaking to her in that tone of voice".

But the man who shot the footage and argued with the officer in question has since come out to defend her against a torrent of negative and abusive comments about the way she handled the situation. "The guy, he didn't even ask me for food". The police officer tells Gallo she can not make the establishment give him a refund, saying: "I'm not here to argue with you".

"I'm not being disorderly", Gallo says.

After watching a body camera from the officer, Bethune said, "She handled herself by following proper protocol, but not only following it, I feel that she exceeded it".

The officer jumped in and told Gallo, "We're here, because apparently he's asked multiple people. If management is asking you to quiet down, quiet down". "Upon arriving at the restaurant, an employee approached the officer and indicated the male was inside the establishment the employee requested the officer issue a trespassing warning and asked that the person leave the premises".

In an interaction with WMBF News, Gallo said about the homeless man: "I waved him down, and I said, "Hey, are you hungry?' and he said, 'Yes.' So I went in there with him, and as soon as we went inside, the lady at the register says, 'You're not getting food".

"What you will not see on that video is the whole story", Bethune said in a recorded response posted to the city's Facebook page.

Myrtle Beach Police confirmed the incident, saying they were dispatched to the McDonald's after receiving a call from an employee. Unfortunately, the individual in this video has a history of disruptive behavior and has been asked to leave by management and police on several occasions. "She had a task, that's what's she's there for, and I have nothing against her", he said.
