Woman Taser Drive Thru

Woman Taser Drive Thru, North Carolina Police Deputies “Deserve a Break Today” after dealing with an unruly customer at a McDonalds drive-thru over the weekend. The deputies say they used a Taser on a woman in front of her 3-year-old daughter after she cut the McDonalds drive-thru line and refused to move when she was denied service.
Locking up a restaurant’s drive-thru is not easily overlooked by fast-food chains like McDonalds (NYSE:MCD), BurgerKing (NYSE:BKC) and YUM Restaurants (NYSE:YUM). According to QSRMagazine.com, a leading source for news and information about the limited-service restaurant industry, drive-thru service can account for as much as 75% of restaurants total revenue. So it’s no surprise that the restaurant employees were eager to get the drive-thru service flowing again.
As reported by ABC News, employees at the McDonalds in Hope Mills, N.C., refused to serve Evangeline Lucca and told her to go to the back of the line. Lucca, 37, refused to move, and blocked the drive-thru for 20 minutes before police arrived on the scene, authorities said.
When deputies arrived, Lucca was “defiant,” “would not get off McDonalds property,” and was “threatening the deputies,” according to Debbie Tanna, a public information officer for the Cumberland County Sherriff’s Office.
Customer Anthony Rich, who was in the parking lot during the incident, told the Fay Observer that Lucca was Tasered twice.
“Two or three officers entered the car with her and started trying to forcibly drag her out of the car, and that’s when you could hear the clicking sound of the Taser one time,” Rich told the Fay Observer. “They pulled on her a couple of times, and then they Tased her again, and when they Tased her the second time, she just flopped out of the car like a fish.”
Lucca was charged with second-degree trespassing, authorities said. Tanna said the woman was in custody, and would remain there until she pays her bond.
