Arby's Worker in Hueytown "snaps" and throws hot grease at a customer

Hueytown Police Chief Mike Yarbrough said an Arby’s employee “just snapped” when an interaction with a customer escalated.

Police in Hueytown are investigating after an Arby’s employee allegedly threw hot grease on a customer on Saturday, April 23, 2022. The employee is in police custody.

Yarbrough said the female employee, “for lack of a better word, just snapped,” over a disagreement over a service of some sort.

Yarbrough said the victim, a female customer in her early 30s, was in a car and there were two children with her. He did not know the children’s ages or if the children were related to the victim.

The victim has secondary burns on a large portion of her body, and she is recovering at UAB, according to Yarbrough.

Officers obtained a warrant for 50-year-old Shea Denise Peoples for first-degree assault with a $30,000 bond. Peoples was taken to the Jefferson County Jail.

Officials with Hueytown Fire and Rescue gave medical treatment to the victim on scene, and they were taken to the hospital to treat their burns.

An Arby’s spokesperson released the following statement: “The actions of the former employee in Hueytown, AL, were reprehensible. We immediately terminated the offender, and we are cooperating with the local authorities in their investigation. Our heart goes out to the guest, and we are working to help support their recovery.”
