Woman Tasered at McDonald's Got More Than She Ordered

Say What!? 36

mcdonalds drive throughWhat in the Mac is this world coming to? Can't we all just behave ourselves at the drive-through? According to witnesses, Evangeline Marrero Lucca of North Carolina cut into the line at her local McDonald's drive-through. She bypassed the order window and the pay window, pulling up right at the pick-up window. LIKE YOU CAN JUST DO THAT. And then she refused to budge until someone took and delivered her order. Which means she stayed there for 20 minutes.

What happened next is what always seems to happen when you have people behaving badly in public these days: Police stunned her with a taser. Did the police go too far? Well, shucks, maybe? But I don't think you're going to find much outrage on Evangeline's behalf.

The McDonald's employees could have made their lives -- and their customers' lives -- a lot easier if they'd just let Evangeline cut this once. But this wasn't the first time. She's a repeat offender. One employee told customer Anthony Rich that Evangeline cuts in the drive-through line all the time. "'We're not having it anymore, so we called the cops,'" Rich says the employee said.

Well, good for them. Obviously giving Evangeline a pass the first time was a mistake. What would this world look like if we all cut in line like that? So the police arrived, they tried to get her to leave, she refused, there was some back and forth, and they ended up stunning her twice before she -- oh, here's how Rich put it: "She just flopped out of the car like a fish." Rich, you were definitely the right witness to interview for this story.

Anyway, the police justified their actions claiming that Evangeline was behaving in a threatening manner. Sounds fishy to me, actually. But like I said, when you act like a jerk at the McDonald's you're not going to attract much sympathy. What is it about fast food and crazy-ass behavior, anyway? Is it the food? Why doesn't it inspire more people to sing happy songs in the drive-through instead?

Have you ever seen people cut in line at the drive-through?

Never, ever saw anyone try this. If I had, my mouth would still be hanging open in shock. The nerve is stunning. What gets me is that in addition to cutting in line, she had no problem in making the people behind her wait for the 20 minutes as she tried to get her way. Kudos for the employees for not giving in and hurray for the cop who tasered her rude, inconsiderate butt. I have no sympathy for this woman whatsoever.

She should have moved the first time. Oh well, too bad. I bet she thinks about that sting next time she wants a Big Mac.

She probably was waiting for this to happen so now she can try and sue the police dept for "excess use of force," or whatever you call it.

Let me get this straight: You say that they should have let her cut once to make their lives a little easier but the very next paragraph you state that giving her a pass the first time was a mistake. Make up your mind!

I was a manager at mcds for two years. People are nuts. Once a lady threatened to kill me over a salad.

I have NEVER cut in any line. But I've had plenty of people cut in front of me in their cars. School drop offs/pickups, drive up ATMs, drive thru, I can't even name all the places.

Jerks feel all secure in their cars, because even if someone yells at them, all they have to do is roll up their windows, flip the bird, and drive off.

I've never seen this. But there was a mom at school pick up who would, without fail, come whizzing into the circular drive in front of school and back her mini van in front of the first person in line. I wanted to tase her every day.
