Woman gets tasered resisting arrest after cutting in line at McDonald’s
Employees at the McDonald’s in Hope Mills, N.C., refused to serve Evangeline Lucca and told her to go to the back of the line. Lucca, 37, refused to move, and blocked the drive-thru for 20 minutes before police arrived on the scene, authorities said.
When deputies arrived, Lucca was “defiant,” “would not get off McDonald’s property,” and was “threatening the deputies,” according to Debbie Tanna, a public information officer for the Cumberland County Sherriff’s Office.
Customer Anthony Rich, who was in the parking lot during the incident, told the Fay Observer that Lucca was Tasered twice.
“Two or three officers entered the car with her and started trying to forcibly drag her out of the car, and that’s when you could hear the clicking sound of the Taser one time,” Rich told the Fay Observer. “They pulled on her a couple of times, and then they Tased her again, and when they Tased her the second time, she just flopped out of the car like a fish.”
