Early this morning, around 5:51 a.m., Hoboken police responded to an assault call at the McDonald’s located at 234 Washington St., according to Police Det. Sgt. Edgardo Cruz.
Donald Pritchett, 50, who is homeless, wanted to use the restroom, but it was out of service. He became angry and shoved the restaurant manager, a female, officials said.
She did not sustain any injuries and opted not to file a complaint. However, a check for outstanding warrants discovered that Pritchett had two failure to appear warrants out of Hoboken and Jersey City, respectively, authorities said.
As a result, he was arrested and transported to the Hudson County jail, where he was held on $150 bail with no 10 percent option for the Hoboken warrant, as well as a $7,500 bail with a 10 percent option for the Jersey City warrant, police said.
