Sandusky police arrested the seven at the McDonald’s restaurant that serves visitors heading for Cedar Point. Police dispatched at 1:35 p.m. Sunday to the McDonald’s at 2102 River Ave. were greeted by several young women who told conflicting stories about what had happened.

After talking to witnesses and viewing a video, however, the police concluded the fight began after visitors from New York entered the restaurant to find out why their food was taking so long and began an altercation with young women in the restaurant.

Wonder who the guy was in the shorts & ball cap that was flashing a police badge, was he an off duty Sandusky Cop? Looked like he was trying to get them all outside.

He won twice , LOL.

Yes, he did win twice. It's more understandable after watching these fine citizens at work in the video. None of them were from Sandusky, but all of them acted as though they were. They might've just been trying to fit in.

YES WE CAN!!

OH-IO

Very stupid, nothing to report small town news.

I thought it funny the guys standing closest to the camera laughing and taking video with their cell phones--but it then looks as if it's their women who got attacked.
What the hell is wrong with people these days? Especially women.
I also noted a woman with a couple of little kids at the counter. She should have gotten them the hay out of there right away.

Announcement in the "Debarkation Area":

"You now have the option to terminate and be cremated on the premises. If you elect this option, notify the Duty Sergeant in your Processing Area."

Should be SOP in all 'current' maximum security prison facilities.

What I get from the video Is the boys were taking video or pics of the overweight woman and then her daughters or family came in to put them in their place. If you watch the video twice you should pick that up.

Kelly

That's not what I saw at all

reporter54

Things might have ended differently if there'd been 7 women from Cleveland there! Glad they got arrested. I am rather sick of the attitude of out of towners that they think they can come here and treat people like crap and get away with it.

If they were ordering food for all those people at the drive thru of course its gonna take more then a few minutes

nobodycares

Most of those people should NOT be eating at mcdonalds !!!!!!

gramafun

I am with the people who are sick and tired of worrying about being politically correct or nicey nice about their comments. Just tell it like it is and the heck with what others think of the comment. At least you are truthful. Good for you. These girls are NOT ladies....just acting like animals and they sure showed it. They got their bells rung as they should have. Wait your turn and stop throwing your weight around and shooting off your big mouth. Your food will be ready when its read. Chill out.
