An angry wheelchair-bound McDonald’s customer in Detroit tried to Taser a restaurant employee Thursday evening because she said the staff took too long with her order.
Authorities said the unidentified female patron visited the McDonald’s restaurant on Woodward Avenue near Canfield Street, not far from Wayne State University’s campus, four days ago.
Wayne State Police said the woman ordered her food around 5pm, but when the staff brought it out to her, she complained that the cashier had been rude and that her food didn’t come fast enough, according to Fox 5 New York.
Outraged, the disabled patron drew a Taser and fired it at an employee, who dodged the weapon’s electric darts, police said.

Officers were called and arrived on the scene minutes later. They said the wheelchair-bound woman yelled at them as well before they eventually calmed her down.
‘We confiscated the Taser,’ Wayne State Police Chief Anthony Holt told the Metro Times.
Fox 5 reports police tried to arrest the woman at the scene, but couldn’t because her wheelchair wouldn’t fit in their car.
The attacker may still be tracked down and arrested if a warrant is approved, police said.
No one was injured during the incident.
