An assistant manager at a South Carolina Burger King has been fired and arrested after police say she served customers fries directly out of the trash can.
Jaime Christine Major, 39, was arrested and charged with malicious tampering with human food for the July 9 incident, authorities say.
The BK manager and a witness called 911 to the restaurant on Duncan Bypass in Union for a disturbance.
There, they found two women, identified as Shantel Elizabeth Harris and Ivory Lakeisha Muhammad, loudly arguing with staff members after seeing an employee give them dirty french fries.
Authorities say the women refused to calm down after being told to do so by a responding officer, the outlet reports.
A police report described Harris, 37, and Muhammad, 39, as “two black females using body language pointing at employees that indicated they were angry about something,” according to the Daily Mail. Police arrested both women on disorderly conduct charges.
On July 11, police again received a complaint from headquarters about the exact Burger King location.
The caller accused an employee of throwing fries into a trash can and then serving those fries to customers. The outlet reports that Major took the fries out of the trash before placing them in the fryer.
Police ultimately arrested Major after an arrest warrant went out and a judge set her bond at $20,000, online court records show. Per court records, she was still in custody as of Thursday (July 20). She faces up to 20 years in prison if convicted.
She has since been fired from that Burger King location.
