Evan Arlington and Stephanie Arlington-Macias bought two cups of coffee and an iced coffee from a Totowa Dunkin’ Donuts on Aug. 25, 2021, according to an April 4 lawsuit they filed in Passaic County.

Arlington suffered second- and third-degree burns after the coffee spilled in his lap at the drive-thru, said the couple’s attorney, William Gold.

Arlington had medical bills, while Arlington-Macias, 37, suffered “a loss of her husband’s aid, comfort, conjugal fellowship and consortium,” they claim in the legal filing.

The pair are seeking unspecified damages. Dunkin’ Donuts didn’t return a message.
