Boy, 4, Attacked With Boiling Hot Fries
When a 4-year-old boy accidentally smeared ice cream on the sleeve of an 18-year-old woman who was nine months pregnant, she retaliated by chasing him through the McDonald's restaurant located in a Wal-Mart in Germantown, Maryland, pinning him in a headlock, and rubbing hot, greasy french fries in his eyes. The incident occurred last May, and on Tuesday the woman, Milikia Hayes, was sentenced to four days in jail and ordered to attend anger management and parenting classes, reports The Washington Post.
Hayes and the child did not know each other. When the ice cream touched her sleeve, she started screaming at the small boy, whom The Post describes as "terrified." State's Attorney Douglas F. Gansler said Hayes smeared "boiling hot, greasy french fries" on his face. "The boy was scared to death," Gansler said. "It is incomprehensible to think that an adult would attack a child of any age in such a manner." The child's eyes were swollen after the attack, but he suffered no serious physical harm.
Hayes' excuse for her actions? She was on her way to a baby shower and was wearing one of her nicest shirts. She pleaded guilty to second-degree assault, which is punishable by up to 10 years in prison. However, a Circuit Court judge sentenced her to 18 months in jail, with all but four days suspended, and ordered her to attend the classes, reports The Post. "Clearly, her own behavior was inappropriate and egregious for any adult, much less someone about to have her own child," Gansler told The Post. "In getting this type of sentence, we hope it will ensure that she's learned a valuable lesson and will help her in raising her own child."
