A Delta man was arrested July 27 after Richmond RCMP officers responded to a disturbance of an angry customer at the Ironwood plaza McDonald's restaurant – Jul 28, 2021

A recent violent outburst at a McDonald’s in Richmond, B.C., has landed one man in jail.

RCMP said their officers were called at approximately 3:40 p.m. on July 27 to the restaurant in the Ironwood Plaza.

Employees called police after an irate customer started yelling at them and allegedly damaging property inside, trying to upend machines and push over displays.

Video shared to social media shows the man approaching the counter, yelling about how he wants a refund for his food and then starting to cause damage inside.

When asked about possible video of the incident, Cpl. Ian Henderson of the Richmond RCMP said: “We are aware that there may be relevant video circulating on social media. However, this investigation is still ongoing and it would be inappropriate to speak to this apparent evidence at this time.”
