Wendy's Worker Busted in Beef Over Dirty Bacon

This could be good PR or really bad PR for Wendy's.

A worker at the restaurant on South Road in West Hartford was charged with pulling a knife on a fellow employee.

Derron Cooke, 25, of Hartford, was arrested Friday around 1:45 p.m.

Cooke told officers he pulled the weapon on his co-worker after the employee dropped bacon on the floor, and tried to put it back on a customer's sandwich, police said.

Cooke said he tried to prevent the co-worker from passing the dirty sandwich on to the customer.

That employee told police the fight was over the way chicken was being prepared.

Despite his gallant effort, Cooke is facing charges of attempted assault, breach of peace, reckless endangerment and threatening.

He's being held on $15,000 bond.
