A Wisconsin woman recently discovered that 3 a.m. is not a good time for the great taste of her favorite McDonald's sandwich.
On Sunday, police in Rock County were dispatched to an address in Janesville at about 3:30 a.m., to investigate a report of a disturbance. Upon arrival at the scene, officers spoke with 40-year-old Darrell Page. The shirtless and visibly upset man said he had just been attacked by his 22-year-old girlfriend, Shanaya Edgell.
Page told police that Edgell had become uncontrollably angry after they went through a McDonald's drive-through and discovered the fast-food chain had stopped serving hamburgers and had switch to their breakfast menu.
"Edgell got upset because she did not want breakfast and only wanted a cheeseburger," reads the police report.
After Page drove away, Edgell apparently accepted the fact that she was not going to have it her way and asked her boyfriend to return to the restaurant so she could get breakfast. Page apparently disagreed and drove on, enraging his girlfriend, police said.
"Edgell began striking him in the face and biting his right arm as he was trying to drive," the police report reads. "Page stated that Edgell was grabbing the steering wheel as he was trying to control the vehicle as it was moving."
Page pulled over to the side of the road and Edgell exited the vehicle, but when he attempted to drive off, she allegedly jumped on the hood of the vehicle. Officers arrived on the scene shortly afterward.
Thompson, who officers observed was "bleeding from his upper lip," refused to allow officers to see where he had allegedly been bitten. He also would not allow them to photograph his injuries.
"It's not a big deal. I'm okay," Page said, according to police.
When police questioned Edgell, she told them that she and her boyfriend had been drinking at a bar and went to McDonald's afterwards. She admitted "acting crazy" because McDonald's had switched over to the breakfast menu and said Page was trying to calm her down. Edgell also told police that she ripped Page's shirt off during their argument, police said.
Edgell was charged with disorderly conduct and was placed in the Rock County jail in lieu of $150 bond.
Perhaps next time Edgell suffers from early morning hunger she will keep her cool and order hashbrowns or an Egg McMuffin. After all, everyone knows the clerks at McDonald's "love to see you smile."
