FORT MILL — A curly red-haired Tega Cay man drove into the customer order screen at a Fort Mill McDonalds and hurled profanities at employees at the drive-thru window before police found him in a parked car outside his house on Saturday, deputies say.
At about 3 a.m., deputies were dispatched to the McDonalds on West S.C. 160 after an employee called police to report that Jonathan Blessing, 20, screamed at employees and stuck his hand through the drive-thru window because the restaurant was closed, a York County Sheriffs report states.
He finally drove away, circling the building and smashing into the order screen before backing his car off of it and driving away.
The screen was slumped to one side, dented and cracked, and the voice reception on it was muffled, the report states. Employees gave police the cars tag information, which pointed to Blessing as the car owner.
Police found the car parked at a Tega Cay house, the report states. A deputy saw Blessing in the drivers seat. Blessing told police he had just finished partying with a friend and drank a Budweiser beer and wine.
He initially denied anything happening at McDonalds, but then told police that he was not upset with the restaurant and would pay for the damages, the report states. He failed a field sobriety test and registered a .13 blood alcohol level. Police charged him with driving under the influence and malicious injury to property.
He was released from jail Saturday on a more than $6,000 bond.
