In the footage of the fight, customers are seen yelling and throwing objects behind the McDonald’s counter. At one point, a woman climbs onto the counter and begins pepper spraying a security guard in the face, before seeming to slip off the platform.

Tony Algarin, the security guard at the scene, told Breaking AC that this was his second day assigned to that McDonald’s location.

“I’ve never been maced before,” said Algarin, 28. “It sucked and it burned but I knew I had to finish my job.”

One of the women involved in the fight had already fled the scene by the time police officers arrived, NJ101.5 reported.

Police are currently investigating the incident. No arrests have been reported at this time.
