Woman Calls 911 After McDonald's Runs Out Of Nuggets
Not quite a Big Mac Attack. More like Nugget Emergency.
Angered that her local McDonald's was out of Chicken McNuggets, a Florida woman called 911 three times to report the fast food "emergency." Latreasa Goodman, 27, called police to complain that a cashier--citing a McDonald's all sales are final policy--would not give her a refund. When cops responded to the restaurant, Goodman told them, "This is an emergency. If I would have known they didn't have McNuggets, I wouldn't have given my money, and now she wants to give me a McDouble, but I don't want one." Goodman noted, "I called 911 because I couldn't get a refund, and I wanted my McNuggets," according to the below Fort Pierce Police Department report.
That logic, however, did not amuse the cops who cited her for misusing the 911 system. Even after being issued a misdemeanor citation, Goodman contended, "this is an emergency, my McNuggets are an emergency." The McDonald's devotee is seen at right in a mug shot snapped after a previous encounter with police.
Oh and the manager acknowledges that the unsatisfied customer should have been given a refund. One is being mailed out along with an apology and some free voucher. See this had a happy ending after all.
