WATCH: White man viciously attacks black McDonald’s worker while her manager passively looks on

A man is under arrest after authorities say he grabbed the shirt of a Florida McDonald's employee and tried to pull her over a counter.

Daniel Taylor, 41, became upset Monday when there were no straws at the St. Petersburg-area McDonald's condiment bar. "And I want her a** fired right now", said Taylor. James attempted to defend herself by punching Taylor in the face. At the end of the video, the thug says, "I was just asking you a f***ing question, bitch". A representative of the St. Petersburg Police Department tells Yahoo Lifestyle that the security tape is not being released at this stage of the investigation. After the assault, it appears Taylor is still allowed to place his order, even after he clearly attacked an employee.

Taylor was escorted out of the restaurant and police were called to the scene.

Many have likely remained the same since the dawn of the solar system, making them essentially time capsules for astronomers. New Horizons zoomed past the small celestial object known as Ultima Thule 3 ½ years after its spectacular brush with Pluto.

"Newsweek reports, "The 5′ 8", 135-pound Taylor was charged with the two counts of 1st degree simple battery for initiating the physical encounter".

Records from the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office show that Taylor is now held in the Pinellas County Jail on a $1,000 bond.
