Deputies: Man assaulted clerk with corn dog


A Central Florida man is behind bars after deputies say he was caught on video throwing hot dogs at a gas station attendant Friday.

Surveillance video shared by the Marion County Sheriff’s Office shows a man – identified by deputies as Cavan McDaniel – angrily knocking over a counter display at the Petro Gas Station on West Highway 318, then throwing hot dogs and even poking the clerk with a corn dog stick.

“The victim was left with a red mark under her eye due to the corn dog stick attack,” the sheriff’s office wrote on Facebook.

Deputies believe McDaniel, 35, was upset because the attendant would not sell him beer.  He was arrested on a battery charge and remains in the Marion County Jail on no bond.

He was already on probation after being arrested in 2017 for battery in Pasco County.
