Lesbian files lawsuit against McDonald's after starting fight with Jamaican employee
NEW YORK, USA – A lesbian woman here who admitted to starting a violent fight in a Manhattan McDonald’s restaurant that involved a Jamaican employee is suing the fast food restaurant.
Myika Darbeau, 25, filed papers in Manhattan Supreme Court charging that Jamaican Rayon McIntosh, 32, used “unnecessary, excessive and unlawful force” in the October 2011 incident that resulted in her skull being fractured.
Darbeau is also suing the owner of the franchise, charging there was inadequate security and the restaurant never should have hired someone with “brutal, dangerous, vicious propensities.”
Police originally arrested McIntosh, saying he assaulted Darbeau and her lover, Rachel Edwards, with a heavy-duty grill scraper.
A grand jury refused to indict McIntosh after seeing a video showing that Darbeau and Edwards jumped over the counter and started the fight.
McIntosh, an ex-convict who got out of jail in March 2011, was released, but Darbeau and Edwards were charged.
They pleaded guilty last month to starting the fight and were sentence to probation.
