The shot heard round the McDonald’s

The shot heard round the McDonald’s
Don’t shoot till you see the whites of their eggs

Some people are able to grin and bear life’s little setbacks. Shaneka Monique Torres, of Grand Rapids, Mich., is not one of them. When she and a friend stopped at a Golden Arches for a late-night burger Sunday, the kitchen staff forgot the bacon. So Torres did what any nutcase would do and fired a shot though the drive-thru window.

The Smoking Gun notes:

The bullet, police reported, entered the eatery at “head level” and “traveled through the window, across the dining room, and exited the restaurant through another window on the east side of the restaurant.” Nobody was hit, however.

Torres was booked on weapons and discharging-a-firearm charges and is being held in lieu of $50,000 bond.
