The Perils of Fast Food: Trip to BK Turns Tragic as Man Chokes On His Dentures

How did he choke on his dentures? Uh, well, the 67-year-old man was punched in the face by an employee.

If only this man had listened to Michelle Obama and the fast food police he'd be alive today.
Detroit Police said a 67-year-old customer of a Burger King was punched and died in an altercation with an employee at the east side fast-food place.

Police said it wasn’t clear what caused a verbal argument between the customer and the worker, a 20-year-old, around 2:30 p.m. Thursday at the burger joint on the 2100 block of Gratiot Avenue.

But the employee punched the man, “and he fell to the ground,” said Sgt. Eren Stephens, a spokeswoman for the Detroit Police Department. “We’re now waiting on the medical examiner’s report to determine the cause of death. The 20-year-old has been taken into custody.”

The punch may have led the victim to choke on his dentures, police told WJBK-TV (Channel 2).
