CAMDEN, SC — Police have arrested a man who allegedly threw a cup of scalding coffee at a teen employee at a McDonald's drive-thru in Camden, South Carolina.
Police say Joshua Emery Noel surrendered to the police on January 16 after police released surveillance video of him throwing coffee at the 16-year-old employee on December 22.
Authorities received several tips identifying Noel after the video was distributed.
When Noel was interviewed by police, authorities say that he confessed to the alleged assault.
Noel reportedly told police that he threw the hot coffee at the teen because he was angered at the length of time he had to wait for his large order of French fries.
He faces charges of assault and battery second degree, according to the Camden Police Department.
Noel is being held at the Kershaw County Detention Center. His bond has been set at $7,500.
