    Grand jury declines to indict McDonald's worker in beating

    New York (CNN) -- A fast-food worker whose run-in with two unruly customers was captured on cell phone video last month will not be indicted on assault charges, prosecutors said Saturday.
    A grand jury voted against indicting Rayon McIntosh, who was seen allegedly swinging a metal object against two patrons at a McDonald's restaurant in Manhattan's Greenwich Village.
    He had been charged with felony assault, according to Joan Vollero, spokeswoman for the Manhattan district attorney's office.

    I know this was a controversial case, but hoodlum or not, I feel as this is the right outcome

    Can you really justify hitting unarmed women with a metal rod while they're on the ground and no longer a threat? One woman had a fractured skull. I understand why the guy initially hit them, but I think he quickly crossed the line from self defense to assault. I think he was lucky not to be indicted, especially in NYC. I doubt he'll fare so well if they file a civil suit. Just my $0.02

    I guess the video doesn't show what they were doing on the ground though. Could they have been reaching for a weapon? Nobody really knows what happened, and the video shows only a very small part. Even if it had gone to court, I think it would have been an uphill battle for the prosecution.

    The McDonald's employee is actually in a civil suit against McDonald's for failing to provide security for employees at that location.
