Police said the man was at a fast food restaurant in Ironwood Plaza in Richmond around 3:40 p.m. Tuesday when he allegedly started damaging property because he was dissatisfied with the service.

The man also had an altercation with the police.

A video posted on social media showed a man shouting curses at McDonald’s employees and knocking over a storefront, plexiglass barriers and a point-of-sale machine from the counter. He also threw a trash can at the workers.

“I’m just waiting for my food,” the man could be heard saying to an employee. “Look how fast these cars go and how long I waited. “

He could be heard repeatedly asking for his money, even though the staff had said he would refund it.
