Arby's worker arrested after outburst, throwing fries

SHARONVILLE, OH (FOX19) - An 18-year-old Arby's worker was fired and arrested after an outburst that left her co-workers in fear for their safety, court records show.

Makayla R. Tackett of Sharonville is held at the Hamilton County jail on charges of disorderly conduct, criminal damaging and telecommunications harassment.

According to court records, she became angry with her boss and began calling her and other employees names Wednesday at the eatery located on Lebanon Road (U.S. 42) near Interstate 275.

She grabbed the french fryer, which had fries and boiling grease in it, and tossed the fries around the restaurant, Sharonville police wrote in a sworn statement filed with Hamilton County Municipal Court.

Then she grabbed the business phone and broke it by throwing it down, it states. She fled the restaurant.

Police called her on her cell phone and advised her she had been terminated from Arby's and was facing charges of disorderly conduct and criminal damaging.

They told her not to return to the Arby's property, or she would face trespassing charges, court records show. She also was told not to contact any employees at Arby's or the restaurant itself via telecommunication method.

Police then called Arby's and notified her boss they had just talked with her.

Within a few minutes, the affidavit states, Makayla sent an employee a text message which read "I got you."

The employee who got the text said she felt in fear of Makayla after receiving it.
