Cheesed-off Macca's customer threatened to ram store

A MAN threatened to ram his truck through Springfield McDonald's on Sunday after he found his Quarter Pounder burger was without cheese.

The man entered the fast food restaurant to order a burger, but was less than happy when he realised his burger did not have any cheese.

A police spokesman said he later phoned Police Link about noon, threatening to drive his truck into the building.

The police spokesperson said the man, unhappy with his order, was abusive towards staff.

Police found a 32-year-old at his Springfield home shortly after and issued him with a public nuisance ticket.
