Police: Grandmother Arrested At McDonald's Drive-Thru For Not Pulling Car Forward

CLEARWATER, Fla. -- A 75-year-old woman was arrested at a Clearwater McDonald's drive-thru, because police say she wouldn't pull her car forward.
Authorities said Jean Merola, a grandmother of eight, was arrested for disorderly conduct after she refused an officer's orders to move her car while she waited for the coffee and fries she ordered at the drive-through window.
Merola said the McDonald's employees told her to wait there for her food.
Merola was handcuffed behind her back and put in the cruiser.
Another officer arrived and took her to the Pinellas County Jail .
Merola said she was searched, photographed and fingerprinted.
Jail records show she was released about 90 minutes later on her own recognizance.

those guys were pretty tough messing with a 75 year old woman. what a bunch of assholes. just get them to give her her coffee and fries and then get on catching some bad guys........

You leave out the part where she called the cop everything but a white boy for twenty minutes before being arrested. Throwing her in jail is still pretty extreme, but how else are you gonna make the problem go away?
