The former McDonald’s cook who was cleared of assault charges in the October beating of two unruly customers, says he plans on suing McDonald’s.

Rayon McIntosh, 31, who served 11 years in prison for manslaughter, says he feared for his life when the two women lunged over the counter, and blames McDonald’s for his response.

McIntosh said he grabbed the closest weapon within reach, a steel and aluminum pole used to scrape food from the gutters of the grill.
