Shooting over bacon-less burger leads to prison time
A Michigan woman was sentenced three to seven years in prison after firing her gun at a McDonald’s drive-through when her hamburger was delivered twice without bacon, local media reported Wednesday.
Shaneka Monique Torres, 30, was convicted in March of carrying a concealed weapon, discharging a firearm into a building and felony use of a firearm, according to ABC affiliate WZZM in Grand Rapids.
A judge sentenced her to serve three to seven years in prison at a hearing Tuesday.
Torres visited a McDonald’s drive-through with a friend on the night of February 10, 2014 and ordered bacon cheeseburgers. When the meal arrived with no bacon, a manager apologized and offered her a free meal, WZZM reported.
She returned several hours later and again received her hamburger without the bacon, at which point she screamed at the restaurant worker and pulled a handgun from her purse, firing a round at the building.
There were no injuries reported.
Her defense lawyer said the shooting was an accident, and was not about receiving her hamburger without bacon, according to WZZM.
