A Parma, Ohio woman was arrested and sentenced to three months in prison after assaulting McDonald’s employees because her drive-thru order did not contain the cookie she ordered.
In a plea deal, Daja Tucker, 24, copped to assault and criminal damage charges in connection with an April confrontation at a McDonald’s in Parma, a city outside Cleveland.
Tucker was intoxicated when she tangled with the workers around 10:15 PM. Angry that she had been shorted a cookie, Tucker climbed through the drive-thru window and fought with the employees, one of whom Tucker spit on.
Well, if nothing else, the sentencing judge is high-lariously sarcastic…
In sentencing Tucker this week, Municipal Court Judge Timothy Gilligan called the assault “truly shocking.” While playing McDonald’s surveillance footage of the incident, Gilligan said, “At this point you spit on her. You just spit on her during this pandemic. And what’s the reason for your attack? You didn’t get your cookie.”
After Tucker acknowledged that the missing cookie prompted the assault, Gilligan said, “Because you didn’t get your cookie, this is the proper response.”
If everyone lived vicariously through Seinfeld quotes, the world would be a better place. “Look to the cookie, Daja. Look to the cookie.”
