Shoot­ing over ba­con-less burger leads to pri­son time

The China Post - - INTERNATIONAL -

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.
