WAUKESHA, Wis. (TCD) — A woman was arrested a month after she allegedly made threatening comments to McDonald’s employees because some of her french fries were burned.
WITI-TV reports Breneida Gottschalk went to the fast-food chain in Brookfield, purchased a sandwich, soda, and fries, then ate her meal. When she finished, she allegedly approached the counter and started criticizing the fact that there was a “burnt end” on some of her leftover fries. She allegedly attempted to make her way into the McDonald’s kitchen to get a new order.
Court documents cited by the Waukesha County Freeman allege an employee tried to stop Gottschalk from entering the kitchen because she was not allowed in there. Gottschalk allegedly argued with the employee and claimed the McDonald’s worker was a drug dealer. She reportedly continued to make her way back and insisted all the employees were selling drugs and would get arrested.
The criminal complaint reportedly said Gottschalk claimed “she had a weapon and she was going to shoot up the restaurant.”
Gottschalk was reportedly exiting the McDonald’s when police arrived.
According to WITI, police did not find any weapons on her.
Prosecutors filed the criminal complaint Oct. 6. Waukesha County court records show she is being charged with disorderly conduct. Her next court date is scheduled for Oct. 19.
