Chicken nuggets, punches thrown in Dinkytown fight

A University of Minnesota student was assaulted with a Chicken McNugget and punches at the McDonald’s in Dinkytown.

Early on Thursday morning, a man threw a McNugget at the male student, who declined to comment on the incident, and started talking “trash,” according to the Minneapolis police report.

The student addressed the man to ask why he threw the food, when a second man walked up to and dumped a drink on him. The first man then punched the student in the face about four times, knocking his glasses off his face, the report said.

The first suspect is described as a white male in his early 20s, 5 feet 11 inches to 6 feet tall, lightly built and wearing light-coloured clothing. The second suspect was a black male in his early 20s, around 6 feet tall with a medium build and wearing dark-coloured clothing. The suspects took off from the scene in a silver car.

Slow news day in Minnesota, I see.

So you don't consider assault to be worthy of the local news. What exactly do you think is worthy of inclusion in a local newspaper?
