A purported confrontation over condiments resulted in a New York City fast-food eatery getting trashed early Sunday morning.
With an alarm blaring, the incident in which a trio of females in their 20s allegedly threw items at employees as well as destroyed a plastic or plexiglass barrier at the counter occurred at Bel Fries in lower Manhattan.
Twerking also appeared to be on the menu.
According to industrious Internet sleuth Libs of TikTok who, among others, shared the video footage of the hangry havoc on social media, “The 3 women seen in the video wrecking the store, were upset that extra sauce cost an additional $1.75. One employee ended up in the hospital with head injuries. All 3 women were arrested.”
“Just another typical day in NYC,” Libs quipped about the Bel Fries brawl.

“We explained to them that this a business rule and that it is the same for everyone, but they did not understand,” chef Rafael Nunez told Univision, per Google Translate, about the disputed extra $1.75 fee. “They destroyed the place’s computers, the cash register, the sauce pumps and they took cash,” he claimed. Nunez recalled that he activated the store alarm in hopes, to no avail, that the sound would scare them off.
He was also understandably saddened that the other customers, many of whom pulled out their cell phones to make their own recordings as what usually happens during these outbursts, just stood around and laughed.
Another employee said “the assailants threw tequila and hot sauce in her face.”
The New York Post reported that the shop which apparently specializes in Belgian-style fries, suffered $250 in damages (which seems relatively inexpensive for this kind of disruption) and two workers suffered cuts to their head.
Cops allegedly arrested the triumvirate on robbery and criminal mischief charges, the Post claimed. One of them was also charged with resisting-related charges after allegedly punching a cop. The other two were allegedly also charged with criminal possession of a weapon.

“Bel Fries was forced to shutter its doors to make repairs and recover from the incident and was still not open by Wednesday,” the Post added on Thursday.
Note: All suspects are presumed innocent until or unless they are convicted in a court of law of any alleged crimes.
The Post describes the Lower East Side location as “nightlife centric,” which, in general, is an environment anywhere that sometimes contributes to these disagreements, if not fast-food freakouts, between staff and dissatisfied or impatient revelers.
That scenario might not apply in this particular situation.
In an unrelated matter, a Twitter user shared a video of a woman jumping on the counter and shouting at KFC workers (*warning for language). It’s not evident as to what aspect of the service she was unhappy about.

As a general observation, customers do take their fast-food orders quite seriously for whatever reasons, and meltdowns of various kinds can result, which can create hazardous conditions if things get physical.
