Wendy’s employee throws cookie wrappers, dipping sauces after learning of suspension

EAST CLEVELAND, Ohio — A fast food employee was not happy when she found found out she would be suspended clocking in early to work.

The female employee arrived for her shift at Wendy’s and clocked in at 5 p.m. Tuesday to begin her shift, an East Cleveland police report said. A manager told the employee, who outside smoking, that she should clock out and return to work an hour later, police said. 

The manager said the employee was scheduled to work at 6 p.m. and that she spoke to her prior to employee clocking in, authorities said. 

The employee was told she would be suspended and she and the manager got into an argument. 

The manager told police that the employee signed the suspension report and went into the restaurant lobby to wait for a ride. 

The employee returned and went into the dry storage area and started throwing cookie wrappers, dipping sauces, salt and sugar packets, police said.

It’s unclear how much of the supplies were damage.

Police were called a second time after the employee returned and started yelling and throwing stuff in the restaurant lobby, investigators said.

The employee was not arrested for the incident. A manager on Thursday said the woman is no longer employed at the Wendy’s.

The case has been sent to the Cuyahoga County Prosecutor’s Office for review.
