  • Alleged assault took place at Stanmore McDonald's
  • 38-year-old became involved in a row at drive-thru window
  • 'Threw chips at attendant, parked car and went into restaurant'

A WOMAN charged with assaulting two McDonald's employees because they didn't replace her chips quickly enough says she wished she "cooked at home" that night.

Amy Elizabeth Johnson, 38, was on a family trip to Stanmore McDonald's three weeks ago when she allegedly lashed out at two workers because she was unsatisfied with her fries.

Johnson was going through the drive thru about 6.10pm on March 17 when she threw her bag of food back at the 16-year-old attendant and demanded they be replaced.

After being directed by the girl to park in a waiting bay, police allege she then walked inside, became aggressive and attacked the pair, grabbing the teenager by the neck, scratching her face and the hand of a manager who tried to intervene.




Johnson was arrested at the scene and charged with assault occasioning actual bodily harm and common assault.

She appeared at Newtown Local Court this morning to face the charges and stayed silent throughout proceedings as her Legal Aid lawyer requested an adjournment.

Speaking outside court, Johnson said it "was ridiculous" that she had been charged, saying "I should have cooked at home instead of going to McDonald's".

Johnson said she had been in the drive-thru with her children when she was handed a bag of chips which were not in their containers, and was angered by the attendant's response to her complaint.

"She was angry and she put her hands in the bag, no gloves or nothing, picked up the chips, shoved them in the boxes and gave back the bags. And that's when we got angry and we threw the bag back and said 'make us new chips because you've touched them with your hands'," she said.

Johnson described how after becoming impatient she walked inside and reiterated her demand, but felt her pleas were being ignored.

"I think there's no customer service, I just kept telling her 'I want my chips, I want my chips' and she just kept arguing with me and arguing with me. There's no ... we'd given our money, I just want my chips, I want my food and I want to go but she just kept going and going and going."

Johnson, who said she had been a regular at the McDonald's, has not returned since.

"I hate Stanmore McDonald's, that's the worst McDonald's everywhere."

Johnson did not enter a plea and will next appear before the same court on May 28.
