Delta man charged for outburst at Richmond McDonald’s

Suspect to appear in court on August 18.
A Delta man is scheduled for a court appearance after smashing and throwing things inside a Richmond McDonald's over an order mix-up.

A 30-year-old Delta man has been charged with mischief and assault after an alleged violent outburst at a Richmond McDonald’s last Tuesday.

William David Scott Jolly has been charged with five offences, including mischief over $5,000, mischief under $5,000, assault with a weapon, assault of a peace officer and willfully resisting or obstructing a peace officer, according to Richmond RCMP.

In a video posted by Kate Rebel on TikTok, Jolly is allegedly seen smashing a display case, smashing glass dividers and throwing a trash can at Ironwood Plaza’s McDonald’s employees after he was told he wouldn’t be served because he allegedly knocked over a hand sanitizer stand on purpose on July 27.

The outburst, according to Rebel, was over a mistyped order for a Happy Meal.

When staff said they would be refunding his money and contacting the police, the man allegedly turned violent.

Richmond RCMP were called and officers approached the suspect who allegedly assaulted two restaurant employees and two police officers during the incident.

Cpl. Ian Henderson, Richmond RCMP spokesperson, said the investigation is still on-going and “it would be inappropriate to speak to this apparent evidence (video) at this time.”

Jolly has been released on bail with his next court appearance scheduled for August 18.

Witnesses of this incident are asked to contact the Richmond RCMP directly at 604-278-1212 quoting file number 2021-20311 or anonymously at 1-800-222-8477.
