Now the 22-year-old MacDonald has been charged with stealing from a safe at the Wendy's restaurant where he worked. The man is no relation to the cheerful, red-haired clown who is the face of the McDonald's advertising campaign. The restaurant manager said he found MacDonald and another employee taking the money at about 1:30 a.m. Monday.
