NEW YORK (UPI) -- A New York City man who claimed to be a pimp at a McDonald's restaurant was sentenced to eight years in prison for stabbing a McDonald's security guard.
Anthony Jones, 52, of Brooklyn, was sentenced in a Manhattan courtroom for the stabbing, the New York Post reported Thursday.
Prosecutors said Jones would often take money from drunk patrons at an Eighth Avenue McDonald's and give them a business card for a nearby strip club.
Many customers complained and Jones was banned from the restaurant, prosecutors said.
On May 6, 2011, a security guard told Jones to leave, and Jones hit him with his cane. When the security guard pursued Jones, Jones knocked him down and stabbed him twice in the leg, prosecutors said.Copyright 2012 by United Press International
