A McDonald’s employee and a customer were banned from the store after fighting over a botched ice cream order.

The incident took place in Florida. According to police, 72-year-old Jarold Paul Nelesen Jr., ordered a sundae, but he was not happy with the way it was prepared.

Nelesen complained to the 19-year-old worker, Kahlil Malik Caswell, about the order.

According to the Lady Lake Police Department, the worker made the customer a new sundae, but Nelesen was still not satisfied.

Caswell became irritated and said: “It’s just ice cream.”

A manager told Caswell to “watch his attitude.” This further irritated Caswell. He allegedly threw a broom and shovel.

The manager ordered the teen to clock out and go home for the night. While he was outside waiting for his ride, Nelesen went outside.

The two began arguing and pointed fingers at each other. Caswell then took out a knife, extended the blade and allegedly swung it.

The customer returned to the store and asked someone to call police.

Lady Lake police were called at 8:30 p.m., and they responded to the McDonald’s on US Highway, where they arrested Caswell. He was booked into the Lake County Jail, on charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. His bail was set at $2,000.

Caswell told officers that he wanted to press charges against Nelesen for his part in the altercation. A police officer went to Nelesen’s home and issued him a citation.
