Alleged cheeseburger slinger arrested


ST. LUCIE COUNTY, FL (WFLX) - A man, accused of chucking a cheeseburger at another man's vehicle in a McDonald's drive-through, faces a misdemeanor charge according to a recently released arrest affidavit. He apparently left a "large spot" of ketchup and cheeseburger pieces on the vehicle

Alleged cheeseburger slinger Brant Goodwin Stephens, 43, of the 6700 block of Lakeland Boulevard in Lakewood Park, was arrested on a criminal mischief charge in connection with the 3 p.m. Saturday incidents.

A St. Lucie County Sheriff's deputy went to an address in the 4800 block of North Kings Highway where the victim said while in the drive-through of McDonald's someone threw a burger at his vehicle's passenger side.

Investigators noted a "large spot" of ketchup measuring 6 inches by 6 inches on the side of the victim's vehicle and cheeseburger pieces on the hood.

The affidavit didn't specify the make and model of cheeseburger.

Assuming it was a McDonald's cheeseburger it would have had 300 calories and 12 grams of fat, according to nutrition data provided on the McDonald's Web site, which describes the product as, "A slice of melty American cheese on a juicy 100% beef patty, zippy pickles and onions, ketchup and mustard on a toasted bun."

The victim got the alleged cheeseburger thrower's tag, and investigators found the vehicle.

"I threw a cheeseburger at that ?%$$#@* truck," Stephens is quoted as saying. "He (upset) me... and if I have to go to jail for it then that's OK."

He should have gotten a "Happy Meal" instead.
