Florida Woman Arrested For Calling 911 When Her McDonald’s Order Was Wrong
I always joke with my family when we go to a restaurant and something about our order comes out wrong. "I'm going to call the cops," I always say, referencing many of the ridiculous news stories we see about people upset about their orders, sometimes even firing guns into drive thru windows over not having chicken nuggets. Well, the newest chapter of this trend takes place in nonother than the Sunshine State.
Deputies with the Polk County Sheriff's Office arrested a woman they say called 911 and assaulted employees of a McDonald's when her order was wrong.
Tianis Jones, 22, was arrested on Friday evening after Polk County deputies say Jones went too far over a mistake made with her drive-thru order.
According to the reports from the deputies, Tianis Jones ordered a Happy Meal with chocolate shake, a Filet-o-Fish sandwich, iced tea and french fries.
Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd, said when Jones found something wrong with her order, an employee asked her to pull around to the third drive-thru window so they could fix the problem.
Rather than pull up, she parked her car and walked inside the Lakeland, Florida McDonald's.
Officials say the surveillance footage they reviewed showed Jones become quickly and increasingly upset, even though employees offered multiple solutions, including one in the form of a refund.
Jones became so upset that she called 911 to complain about the order being wrong, just before things escalated to violence.
Jones reportedly walked behind the counter and started to throw items, even throwing a sleeve of cups at an employee in the dining room.
Reportedly, the entire encounter between Jones and employees lasted about ten minutes, but officers released two minutes of the video, in which you can see Jones twerking as she leaves the store, like a sane person.
Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd, didn't miss the opportunity to make a joke.
"I don't know what was wrong with her that night," Judd said. "I don't know if she was two fries short of a Happy Meal, but she created a McMess and acted like a McNut… she ended up a McBurglar."
22-year-old Tianis Jones was arrested and charged with burglary with assault, criminal mischief, disorderly conduct and misuse of 911.
