Angry Customer Throws Burger At Fast-Food Worker

SANDUSKY, Ohio (AP) - Flipping burgers is one thing. Flinging them is another.

Police said that a customer at a Burger King restaurant near Sandusky threw a burger at a restaurant manager because it didn't look the same as one on a billboard advertisement.

Sgt. Al Matthews said that a 60-year-old man called police to complain about his sandwich.

Restaurant manager Elizabeth Drake offered to make him another sandwich, but police said that the man told her it still wasn't like the one in the picture and he threw it at her, but missed.

Police said that Drake returned the customer's money and declined to press charges. Police escorted him out of the restaurant and told him not to return.
