An Alabama restaurant worker was charged with assault on Monday for allegedly throwing hot grease onto a customer.

The incident occurred after the worker and customer had a dispute about the service at the drive-thru. According to US News, this occurred at the Arby’s location in suburban Birmingham.

Police said the two women involved did not know each other before the incident. Not many details are provided to describe what exactly happened to lead to the worker actually throwing hot grease.

The victim was hospitalized with second-degree burns and filed a lawsuit against the worker, Arby’s, and the companies in Alabama that run the restaurant.

While the worker, a 50-year-old woman, was freed on a $30,000 bail, Arby’s has fired her and called her actions “reprehensible.” The company also said in a statement, “Our heart goes out to the guest, and we are working to help support their recovery.”

A similar situation occurred at a Checkers restaurant in September of 2018. A dispute between two customers and a worker at the drive-thru broke out. The worker then proceeded to dump three containers of hot grease onto the women and their car. Police later charged the worker with aggravated and simple assault.
