Rosemary Hayne, 39, who hurled burrito bowl in face of Chipotle worker Emily Russell after she got her order wrong is ordered to work at fast-food joint for two months to avoid prison sentence
- Customer Rosemary Hayne, 39, was found guilty of assault after she hurled a chicken burrito bowl at Chipotle employee Emily Russell, 26, in Parma, Ohio,
- Judge Timothy Gilligan ordered Hayne to work at least 20 hours per week at a fast-food restaurant instead of going to jail
An unsatisfied Ohio woman has been ordered to work at a fast food chain for two months in lieu of a prison sentence after throwing a burrito bowl at a Chipotle employee.
Rosemary Hayne, 39, was captured on camera hurling a bowl of chicken burrito at Emily Russell, 26, the store manager at a Chipotle in Parma, Ohio, in September.
Hayne pleaded guilty to one count of assault last week and was initially sentenced to three months in jail.
Judge Timothy Gilligan ordered her to serve two months through employment, working at least 20 hours per week at a fast-food restaurant.
‘You didn’t get your burrito bowl the way you like it and this is how you respond?’ he said during sentencing.
‘This is not real housewives of Parma. This behavior is not acceptable.’

Russell told the court that she had been traumatized by the assault and had to quit her job at Chipotle, where she had worked for more than four years
A viral video shows Hayne confronting Russell angrily when she brought her order to the counter.
She forcibly throws the entire bowl in the worker’s face, leaving her drenched in a mix of food and sauce.
Hayne then exited the store, continuing to shout at the worker, as bystanders were left in shock by the unexpected attack.
She apologized to Russell in court, but said she was not happy with the way her food was prepared, FOX 8 reported.
‘If I showed you how my food looked and how my food looked a week later from that same restaurant, it’s disgusting looking,’ Hayne said.
Judge Gilligan was not buying the explanation when she sentenced Hayne.
‘I bet you won’t be happy with the food you are going to get in the jail,’ he said.
Russell told the court that she had been traumatized by the assault and had to quit her job at Chipotle.
‘She started screaming at me. … The next thing I knew she threw the food in my face. I was so embarrassed and in shock.’ Russell told the Washington Post.
Russell said she was protecting a 17-year-old employee who was being yelled at by Hayne when she ended up covered in food.
She had remade Hayne’s order twice and added extra protein, but Hayne returned and abruptly hurled the bowl in her face.
Russell added that the freshly prepared food was at a scorching 200 degrees and left her face burning red.

Parma police Lt. Dan Ciryak corroborated Russell’s account: ‘The manager said a customer named Rosemary complained about her food, so she made her order twice in order to help remedy the situation.’
Police also said Russell had a ‘slight redness to the side of her face where she was hit,’ according to Cleveland.com.
Minutes after a 911 call was made to report the assault, police found Hayne at her home and arrested her.
‘It was pretty easy to locate her, as the caller provided her license plate information and the female’s receipt displayed her first name as Rosie along with her phone number,’ Ciryak said.
Judge Gilligan asked Hayne: ‘Do you want to walk in her shoes for two months and learn how people should treat people or you want to do your jail time.’
‘I’d like to walk in her shoes,’ Hayne said, adding that she planned to get a job at a fast food store.
The judge told a FOX reporter after the sentencing: ‘So I thought, why should the city taxpayers pay for her and feed her for 90 days in the jail if I can teach her a sense of empathy?’
Russell said she’s pleased with the sentencing: ‘She didn’t get a slap on the wrist, so she’s gonna learn how to work in fast food and hopefully it will be good’
The former store manager who had worked at Chipotle for four years quitted her job shortly after the assault
Russell said Chipotle was not supportive following the assault and ‘it was mentally and physically getting hard’
Russell said she’s pleased with the sentencing: ‘She didn’t get a slap on the wrist, so she’s gonna learn how to work in fast food and hopefully it will be good.’
The former store manager who had worked at Chipotle for four years quitted her job shortly after the assault.
‘It was mentally and physically getting hard on me. Working 65 hour weeks, no raises, no appreciation. I just had enough,’ she wrote in a social media post.
She found a job at Raising Canes and got a raise and promoted a month after working at the fast-food chain.
‘The health and safety of our employees is our greatest priority, and we’re pleased to see justice served for any individual that does not treat our team members with the respect they deserve,’ a spokesperson with Chipotle said.
