CLEVELAND— Cleveland police have issued an arrest warrant for the woman, they say, was responsible for hitting three people with a car during a fight that broke out during McDonald's "National Hiring Day".

Police are looking for Stacey Matthews, 22, of Cleveland, who was last seen heading east from the scene on foot.

The passenger of the vehicle, Natasha Grayer, 22, of Cleveland, was taken into custody. She has been charged with felonious assault….

According to MetroHealth Medical Center, the owner and operator of the McDonald's, Turan Strange, 59, of Cleveland Heights, is in fair condition.

Hospital officials say the manager of the McDonald's, Marilyn O'Stricker, was treated and released.

A 17-year-old involved in the incident was also treated and released….

Leonard Hubbard says he had just wrapped up his interview at McDonalds when the fight started.

"I stepped outside and I saw a girl spit in the other girl's face and I knew something was about to happen," said Hubbard.

He says it felt like a flash mob, complete with fists and weave. He took out his cell phone and started shooting....

Hubbard posted his video to Facebook and it has become a viral sensation.

He says while it is difficult to watch the video, he says the bosses at McDonald's were heroes for getting involved.

"The lady who happened to get hit was very nice. She was helping all of us out, so I don't understand why it had to end like that. I am concerned that they might not hire people," added Hubbard….

This incident is being investigated by the Fifth District Detective Bureau.

Anyone with any information on Matthews' whereabouts, please contact the bureau at (216) 623-5518.

Attempting to intervene in this kind of fight is foolish. Call 911 and let the cops handle them - it's their job.
