  1. Let’s hope there were a few literate customers as witnesses to this altercation. Of course, no words of anger from one customer should incite assault -battery from a business employee; never.

  2. According to Fox 10 Phoenix this assault occurred at the Prescott Valley Wendy’s restaurant. Did Wendy’s check the background of this employee before they hired him? I did a quick internet search on Antoine Kendrick and, according to the website, Kendrick has been arrested numerous times in Hamilton County, TN from 2012 to 2020. What kind of background check does Wendy’s do for their potential employees who will be in contact with their customers?

    1. Perhaps Wendys had thought Mr Kendrick had been Rehabilitated. Who knows.? But to punch a elderly man in the head with a Tyson force is not excusable. in my opinion.
