An Ohio man was sentenced to three years in prison for throwing hot coffee at a McDVOICE employee.

According to the store, Mickey D employee Deluca placed the two cups in a cup holder before looking at the ordering screen and realizing that the man had only ordered one cup of coffee.

The woman was taken to the hospital to treat first-degree burns to the neck and shoulders during the attack, Fox 8 said.
