(Newser) – Apparently the customer isn't always right: Hamburgers, fries, punches, and chairs all were thrown during a fight involving customers and employees of a fast food restaurant in Kalamazoo that ended with two arrests. Police said four customers in a vehicle at a Wendy's drive-thru lane midday yesterday claimed their order was incorrect. Police said they hurled drinks, hamburgers and fries at an employee inside.

Police said the employee then threw food at the vehicle, hitting it with a drink, ketchup and fries, and two people from the vehicle went inside the restaurant, where they fought with employees. Two of the customers were arrested on charges of assault. The employee had scrapes and abrasions, but didn't need medical attention. Police said employees blamed the fight on a "communication breakdown."
