Speaking of extreme altercation at Wendy's outlets, an employee in Arizona was charged with second-degree murder in August after the customer he punched, succumbed to his injuries. Antoine Kendrick punched the 67-year-old victim after he allegedly complained about his meal order.

In another incident, a customer got upset and smashed a glass food display at Wendy's Bronx outlet after the employee at the outlet requested they wear their face mask properly, before placing the order. The suspect caused $1,000 worth of damage to the outlet.
