According to CNN
A decorated disabled Iraqi War veteran is slapping McDonald’s with a $10 million lawsuit — claiming he was pummeled by employees at a Brooklyn franchise when he tried to bring his service dog into the restaurant.
Retired Army Capt. Luis Montalvan, 36, charges that workers at the eatery on 52nd Street and Fifth Avenue in Sunset Park pounded him with plastic garbage can lids, leaving him with neck and back injuries.
Montalvan, who suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder and traumatic brain injury, uses his golden retriever, Tuesday, to keep him calm.
In December, the ex-soldier who walks with a cane, went to the fast-food restaurant with his dog, and the workers allegedly began berating him.
“Employees started yelling, ‘No dogs!’ and ‘Get out!’ ” he told The Post.
An angered Montalvan, who earned two Bronze Stars, wrote a complaint letter to the corporation, resulting in stickers being placed on the restaurant’s doors stating service dogs were allowed.
But when he went back a month later, he was tossed out.
Finally, on Jan. 30, he returned one last time to take photos of the sticker when two men wearing McDonald’s uniforms approached him carrying plastic garbage can lids, he claims.
The men allegedly beat him for two minutes.
The Sunset Park McDonald’s management had no comment.
