Police are investigating a vicious beating at a McDonald’s drive-thru, 9Wants to Know has learned.
Shannon, who asked us not to use her last name, was the victim of an attack on May 9 just before noon.
Radio reference recorded dispatchers describing the attack, as multiple 911 calls came in.
“Two black females are inside. They’re fighting inside the car still in the drive-thru,” one dispatcher can be heard saying.
Shannon has been coming to the same drive-thru almost every day for five years without a problem – until this incident.
“I witnessed this young lady throwing trash out of her car and all I said was that it wasn’t cool,” Shannon said.
A few choice words later, Shannon thought the argument was over.
“All of a sudden I was being attacked,” Shannon said.
Two women jumped out of the car in front of her.
“She was right in my window just punching me in my face, pulling my hair,” Shannon said. “She started biting on my hands so severely. I thought she was gonna bite ’em off actually.”
Then a man jumped out of the car and threw a soda through her window.
“He said, ‘This is for you, you white b—-. This is a grape soda.’ And then they took off,” Shannon said.
The description of the suspects – two black women and one black man – is vague.
