A McDonald’s customer from Newark, Del., was arrested on Sunday for allegedly attacking other patrons with a “disabling” chemical spray, police say.
Stephen Mikulcik, 62, was charged with four counts of second-degree assault, seven of offensive touching, six of second-degree reckless endangering and two of disorderly conduct.
The altercation left multiple victims needing treatment at a nearby hospital, Delaware Online reports.

According to police, Mikulcik had gotten into an argument with a woman inside the restaurant, prompting her to leave and inform her boyfriend, Elbert Woodson, 59, who was waiting outside. Woodson responded by entering the restaurant and attacking Mikulcik, bruising his eye.
Mikulcik then went outside and retrieved a chemical spray from his car, police say, before reentering the restaurant and Woodson as well as other diners. He also physically attacked other patrons, Delaware Online reports.
Mikulcik was eventually subdued by one off-duty and another retired state trooper, who remained on the scene until Newark police arrived to place Mikulcik under arrest.
It is unclear how many patrons, in total, were injured during the attack. Three were transported to a hospital for treatment.
