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.

According to Columbia's WACH-TV, Joshua Emery Noel surrendered to police on Jan. 16. He reportedly turned himself in after authorities released surveillance video that allegedly shows Noel throwing coffee at a 16-year-old employee on Dec. 22.

Authorities reportedly received several tips identifying Noel after releasing the video.

Interviewed by police, authorities say Noel he confessed to the alleged assault.

Noel allegedly told police he threw the hot coffee at the teen because he was angry about how long it took for him to receive a large order of French fries.

Noel is being held at the Kershaw County Detention Center. His bond has been set at $7,500.
