Man carries dead raccoon into McDonald’s — forcing restaurant to shut down for sanitizing

Published

A San Francisco McDonald’s was shut down temporarily after a man carried a dead raccoon dripping blood into the fast food restaurant.

Another customer posted video on Facebook of the bizarre incident Sunday morning that shows the mentally ill man carrying the dead animal into the restaurant and begging for help, reported San Francisco Chronicle.

“The guy came in screaming, ‘Help, help, help!'” said Chris Brooks, who frequently stops at that restaurant for breakfast. “He came to the counter, and I thought it was a dog at first. The employees told him to leave, and he went and sat down with it.”

The video shows the man get up and walk around the restaurant, leaving the dead animal lying on a table.

“There was blood on the table and blood on the floor and, with people walking around, you could see them tracking the blood around,” he added.

The 54-year-old Brooks told the newspaper that homeless people frequently go to the restaurant for food and to escape the cold, and he said about two dozen customers were in the McDonald’s when the man brought the raccoon inside.

Police responded about 7 a.m. to the incident, and a department spokesman said the man was evaluated for mental health but did not meet the criteria for psychiatric detention.

Officers were not able provide details about the man’s housing situation.

McDonald’s said the restaurant was closed for about two hours while employees sanitized the dining area, and the health department cleared the business for full operations that afternoon.

Luppen, who offers legal analysis on his popular @nycsouthpaw Twitter account, came to a conclusion that seemed to surprise him after watching the interview.

"I’ve never seen a lawyer sit on a cable panel show and make that much news," Luppen wrote.

Democratic prosecutors wrap up case against Trump

Published

on

Democratic prosecutors on Friday wrapped up three days of arguments for seeking Donald Trump's removal from office, as the US president's lawyers prepared to take their turn presenting his defense in the Senate's historic impeachment trial.

For a final eight-hour stretch, the 100 senators listened as Democrats argued that Trump abused the power of the presidency in pressuring Ukraine to launch investigations that would help him politically and then sought to block efforts by Congress to investigate.

Democrats said they had met the burden of proof as they warned Republicans that Trump would remain a grave danger to the nation if left in office.
