Man Named Ronald McDonald Shot at Sonic Drive-In Shootout Over Fast Food Love Triangle: Cops

A North Carolina man named Ronald McDonald may have strayed too far from the Golden Arches last week.

The McDonald's mascot's namesake was at a Sonic drive-in restaurant in Lumberton where police say a heated argument with an employee of the fast food chain turned violent.

Both McDonald, whose wife is a manager at the Lumberton restaurant, and the employee fired guns, police reportedly told WNCN.

A spokesman for the Lumberton Police told InsideEdition.com that "this appears to be over an extra marital relationship between the female manager and an employee."

McDonald was struck by gunfire and is being treated for his injuries, which are not considered life-threatening.

As of Wednesday morning, no charges have been filed in the case.

Just days after the alleged Sonic incident, an appalling attack occurred at a Wendy's drive-thru in Missouri.

A pregnant fast food worker was reportedly dragged out of the fast food drive-thru window and beaten after a customer accused her of forgetting to put straws inside their take-out bag.
