McDonald's parking fracas leads to felony conviction
A Colorado man was convicted of felony assault after an incident in a McDonald's parking lot, according to this report:
Jurors deliberated for less than three hours before finding Vernon Brandt guilty of a sole count of third-degree assault stemming the July 29, 2008, confrontation in the parking lot of the Loveland restaurant. Prosecutors said Brandt and Richard Albers, 85, had previously verbally clashed over Brandt's use of Albers' preferred parking spot.
Albers was not present when the verdict was read. Brandt did not visibly react. He will be sentenced April 16. Brandt has no prior felony convictions, according to Colorado court records. He was charged with a felony because Albers is considered an at-risk adult due to his age.
