Unhappy that his stepdaughter hadn’t yet grasped the concept of “staying in a child’s place,” Massachusetts native James Hackett was arrested for hurling fresh french fries in the little girl’s face.

The 26-year-old Hackett, his wife and her 11-year-old daughter had received their food from the drive-thru when the couple began squabbling about money. The girl tried to participate in the adult matter, which allegedly prompted Hackett to hit her in the face with the fries. His choice of a golden weapon indicates that may have played too much GoldenEye as a kid.

Though the little girl was not injured, she’ll probably grow up to hate french fries and her stepfather. Hackett pleaded not guilty to assault, and has been instructed to stay away from his stepdaughter. Her mother should probably stay away from him, too.
