CAMDEN, S.C. (AP) – Police have arrested the man who they say threw hot coffee on an employee at a McDonald’s in South Carolina because he was upset over the wait.
The State quotes Camden Police as saying Thursday that Joshua Emery Noel turned himself in on a misdemeanor charge of second-degree assault and battery.
Multiple people identified Noel as the driver who threw a cup of coffee on the 16-year-old girl last month.
Police say Noel admitted doing so during an interview after he surrendered.
If convicted, Noel faces up to three years in prison.
