    Maryland — The internet has fallen in love with another video of a fight in a fast-food restaurant, this one of a nasty assault at a Rosedale, Md. McDonald’s that culminates in the victim having a seizure.

    Police say the victim, 22-year-old Chrissy Lee Polis, was attacked by two women ages 14 and 18, both of whom have now been charged with assault. They may also face hate-crime charges; according to Equality Maryland, Polis is a transgender woman, and the attack should be investigated as a hate crime. (Previous hate crime speculation had centered on the fact that Polis is white and her attackers are black.)

    The video doesn’t show much besides the intense assault, but The Smoking Gun (which identifies the videographer as McDonald’s employee Vernon Hackett) uncovered some Facebook posts alleging that the woman attacked Polis for using the women’s bathroom.
