According to foreign media such as the Washington Post and BBC, Rosemary Hayne (39) was sentenced to 180 days in prison and 90 days of probation by a court in Parma, Ohio, on the 6th (local time) for insulting a fast food restaurant employee and throwing food in his face. He proposed a 60-day reduction in sentence if he worked as a fast food restaurant employee for two months.

Hein was indicted on September 5th for throwing hot food at a manager’s face at a Chipotle store, a famous American fast food chain, because the food was “strange.”

At the time, he was yelling at the 17-year-old employee and complaining about the food. To protect the staff, the store manager responded to Hein directly and served him food again according to his request. However, Hein threw the newly received food into the manager’s face. The incident left the manager with burns to his face and left his job in shock.

However, when someone filmed the scene and shared it on social media, it became a hot topic, and Hein was caught by the police and put on trial.

According to local media, during the trial, Hein apologized for his actions but said, “The food I received that day was truly disgusting.” Timothy Gilligan, the judge in charge, is said to have dismissed the claim, saying, “If you were given food in prison, you wouldn’t make such noises.”

Judge Gilligan said of Hayne’s actions: “You are not the star of a TV show. “That is a very wrong action,” he pointed out. At the same time, he suggested working at a fast food restaurant for 20 hours a week for two months in exchange for a reduced sentence.

Hayne, who was scheduled to be sentenced to 180 days in jail and 90 days suspended, accepted the judge’s offer, and Judge Gilmore sentenced him to 30 days in jail and 60 days of fast food work.

In the social media comments that shared the news, various netizens responded, such as “I’d rather spend a year in jail than work at a fast food restaurant for two months,” and “That guy is in big trouble.”
