Monkey Beats Woman at McDonald's With 'Wet Floor' Sign
A Franklin Park man was charged with battery after beating a woman in McDonald's with a "wet floor" sign, Forest Park police said.
Levare Boston, 43, was charged after police were called to McDonald's, 420 Des Plaines Ave on March 12. Police saw a woman with cuts on her cheek and nose, and she said she knew Boston from the PADS shelter.
Police reviewed video surveillance and said Boston was seen with another woman, later identified as his girlfriend. The victim tried to leave the restaurant after spotting Boston, who then got up and began arguing with her.
He then was seen grabbing a "wet floor" sign and hitting the victim with it multiple times, police said.
At the station Boston said the woman threw hot coffee at his face, but police said none of his clothes were wet and he showed no signs of injuries. The victim said Boston was mad at her because she "turned down his advances."
Boston was given a May 16 court date.
