Ronald McDonald breaches restraining order by following wife to McDonald’s

From This Is Kent:

RONALD McDonald has admitted breaching a restraining order after he followed his wife to McDonald’s.

The 50-year-old Westgate man, who shares his name with the fast-food chain’s famous mascot, flouted a ban barring him from contacting his wife last month.

A Westgate man who shares his name with fast-food mascot Ronald McDonald, breached a court order by following his wife to the golden arches

McDonald, of Cambourne Avenue, was hauled before Thanet Magistrates’ Court last Friday for then breaching his bail conditions by texting her.

Prosecuting, Julie Farbrace said: “Mr McDonald followed his ex-wife along a number of streets. She parked in McDonalds in Westwood Cross and he followed her in.

“She then drove into Tesco. It was then that she herself went into a petrol station and he approached the car.”

The restraining order was imposed on McDonald on September 11 after he assaulted his wife and another woman.

But the court heard how McDonald was still a frequent visitor to his former matrimonial home in Margate afterwards.

Miss Farbrace said: “It seems this was something that she did allow despite the restraining order, but part of the terms was not to come in the house when she was there, and he was not to smoke or drink.”

On September 16, Mrs McDonald became cheesed off with her cleaner husband after she found him bringing their son Ronnie a beer at her home.

McDonald then drove behind her car to the golden arches – the home of his namesake, as well as the Hamburglar and the Happy Meal Gang.

He then breached his bail conditions by texting his wife on October 15.
