Kansas City Police Still Looking For Black Woman Who Chimped Out Over Bad Hamburger And Caused Over $3,000 Damage At A McDonald's Restaurant
Kansas City Police are still looking for a woman who was upset over the quality of her meal at a local McDonald's restaurant and staged a world-class chimpout before leaving the premises. Update January 12th: The woman has been located and was arrested around 9:45 A.M. on Sunday January 10th; she is identified as 19-year-old Alesha McMullen, who was allegedly "having a bad day". She has been charged with first-degree property damage, a Class D felony.
According to Kansas City Police Chief James Corwin, who edits his own blog, the unidentified woman, a customer at a McDonald's at 3255 Main St. on December 27th, did not like the way her sandwich was made, so she took it back to the cashier. Twice employeees offered to give her a replacement sandwich, but she wanted her money back instead. After being unable to get satisfaction, she proceeded to throw a container of drinking water over the counter. She then threw a "wet floors" sign and a cookie container. Finally, she started knocking off the cashiers' computers/cash registers, altogether causing more than $3,000 in damage. Watch the video embedded below:
The $3,000 damage estimate is significantly higher than the figures first floated by media outlets such as KMBC Channel 9 and KCTV Channel 5. Additional discussion of this incident at Stormfront and Chimpout.
