Destroy McDonald’s, be released without bail

A man accused of flying into an ax-wielding rage at a Lower East Side McDonald’s (a woman just spurned his advances) was released without bail at his arraignment, authorities said Sunday.

Michael Palacios, 31, who allegedly grabbed an ax and trashed the Delancey Street fast-food joint early Friday, was arraigned on fourth-degree criminal mischief and possession-of-weapons charges hours later and freed, the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office said.

Palacios claimed he only started flailing his weapon because he was assaulted. Three bystanders appeared to confront and beat him because he allegedly harassed a woman, who repeatedly rejected his advances, according to video of the incident [National Review].
