    McDonald's received Weight Watchers' approval on some of their menu items.

    Police issued an arrest warrant for a fast food customer with a quick temper.

    Police in Des Plaines say a McDonald's customer last month accused employees of shortchanging him by $10. The customer became irate, kicked a cash register, assaulted a credit card machine and chucked hot coffee and food at employees as part of his tantrum.

    Des Plaines police told the Sun-Times a witness got the 34-year-old suspect's license plate number in the parking lot.

    Police contacted the man but he refused to surrender. Police say they also have video of the entire episode.
