Kimesa Smith, 31-year old bikini-clad woman from Alabama, was arrested and charged with misdemeanor battery charge after she ransacked a Burger King in Panama City Beach (Florida). She seemed to have gone nuts after waiting for 20 minutes for her food and ended up flinging the bag of food at workers with whom she had quarreled. She also copped to, among other things, throwing another customer’s drink at workers, pulling the manager’s hair, and throwing the coin jug.
The whole incidence was recorded by a fellow diner on a cellphone and was uploaded on the Internet. Check the video –
According to a Panama City Beach Police Department report, Smith tried to pull away after being handcuffed. “Take your damn hands off me, you can’t touch me,” said Smith. While in custody, she “continued screaming and yelling” at a cop and a Burger King employee who identified her for officers.
In an interview, Smith said that the confrontation began after she complained to workers about the tardy delivery of the Whopper Jr. and french fries she had ordered. She recalled exclaiming loudly, “Damn, these folks are slow.”
“We tore the Burger King up,” she remarked. “I don’t play no games.”Source: www.thesmokinggun.com
Smith was released on a $500 bond. Smith does believe that Burger King employee do bear some responsibility for her meltdown.
Arguing that Burger King employees bear some responsibility for the altercation, Smith said, “When I walked in they had no smiles on their faces. We weren’t treated fairly.” Having herself previously worked at McDonald’s and Church’s Chicken, Smith added, “I know how to greet my customers.”
“If I knew what was gonna happen,” Smith said, “I would’ve gone to Taco Bell.”Source: www.thesmokinggun.com
Though I have an intuition that Taco Bell employees are happy that you didn’t visit them instead!
