    Isn`t McDonald`s parking spaces private property? So how could she be parked in the wrong spot?

    If nobody from McDonald`s complained....

    I agree with you, it is a mcdonalds parking lot which is privately owned so they make their own parking rules. That cop must have been hungry, and her not showing the cop her licence must have made him snap.

    F*cking cop was being a douche. See if I get this straight, she ordered, pulled forward while she waited for her hot tasty french fries. Cop behind her, has his poo and wants to go. She`s in the way, so he honks and asks for her license and reg.?

    Seriously, I would have done the same, using very profane language. drat that, if he wants me to pull up more I will but don`t try and pull your holier than thou bullpoo on me because you can`t get past my car.

    Although it would never happen to me, since I never eat at McDiks.

    Shame on McDonalds for not having unsalty fries. I know many people who have worked there and they salt their fries a few times....

    But still, we obviously can see that the cop was thinking with his stomach.

    Tadaki: I wonder why kids in the US don`t respect *anyone*. I also wonder why the kids in the US grow up to be self centered cops who think everything should revolve around them.

    It`s a lack of empathy. Not because once a week someone in one of the just under 20`000 law enforcement *agencies* in the US alone is a prat and gets on the news. It would be a *miracle* if all the approx 1.05 million people involved in law enforcement in the US were perfect.

    Think about your school ffs. Did *it* have 1.05 million students? It probably had 1/1000th of that, but how many jackasses did it have?

    Okay, the officer asked her to move the vehicle, she refused. He asked for ID at that time (I would do the same just to get her to understand I am giving her a lawful order) and she refused. She then went on to curse at him (her own admission) and be very rude towards the officer. At that point he was well within the law to arrest her for disturbing the peace.

    He was not abusing his authority at all. I have family in Florida and hear about these older women`s actions all the time. They get in their cars and do whatever the hell they want (Turning right across 3 lanes of traffic into shopping mall parking lots) and don`t respect anyone (especially if that person isn`t white).

    She will probably just get a slap on her wrist, have to pay a fine and maybe get some points on her license. He will get teased by his fellow officers for a while, and life will go on.

    Fair point baalthazag - there`s bound to be a few eejits (it`s an irish thing) in a force of over a million. However, at my school, the idiots there were kids, not `responsible` (and armed) adults who were supposed to enforce law and protect justice.

    Seriously though - bigmacs aren`t THAT good...

    Come to think of it, both were pretty much idiots. The cop started it, by telling her to move her car, when -based on what the article stated- she actually was in a proper place to stop her car.

    The old lady on the other hand, went on a tirade over a ridiculously small matter. Also doesn`t an officer have the right to see your license, regardless of what you`re doing, right or wrong?

    As far as I know (and it`s been awhile since I took law, but bear with me) a cop is allowed to ask for your ID and ask you three questions no matter what. You could be walking down the street minding your own business, and a cop could approach you and do that, but more than three questions is considered harassment.

    As far as the video goes, I do think that the granny went a little overboard with her temper, but she wouldn`t have gotten mad in the first place if the cop wasn`t a douche. No one has any patience anymore. Sometimes they mess up your order or you get something different and it takes them longer to get it to you, anyone who has ever gone to a fast food place knows that it isn`t always fast. So sit back, relax, and accept that sometimes things just go slowly in this face paced world, and that isn`t always a bad thing.

    He had to have cause to even ask for her licence. That would be like just sitting in a parking lot waiting for a friend to come out of a store, and some cop walks up and knocks on your window and asks for your licence and reg. Then arresting you.What would you do then? He started the entire thing by being an ass abusing his authority. I wonder how many people he tazed this week alone. She should contact the ACLU..

    Tymberwulf, of course he was abusing his authority. Number one, he was honking at her to get her out of the way long before he went up to her window.

    She will most likely get nothing, especially since the news found out about it. The department in this instance will probably want to save face and let it go without a nasty court trial that could make them look worse. The officer will most likely be let off the hook too, if he hasn`t been confined to a desk for a few weeks.

    For non-americans:

    The lady was getting fries, but it took too long
    Cop decided to be a douche and "abuse" his power
    Lady refuses, `cause he was being a douche
    He arrests her for not showing her license

    Technically what he did was legal, but still very spiteful to arrest someone because they made you wait longer at the drive-thorugh.

    I say the judge should throw the case out of court and make the officer pay a few fees for her trouble.

    Of course it`s irrational. Still, it`s bad form to obstruct a cop when he`s having a Mac attack. One gets out of the way and cooperates or one experiences the power of the cop.

    You guys are still missing the main point, for some reason the officer felt that she needed to move her car. Now, we didn`t see how she parked her car but in my experience most americans can`t park to begin with so she was most likely blocking the drive thru lane.

    If he did beep his horn at her that was his friendly warning, the fact he had to get out of his car tells me she was being an ass. You can not treat officers badly. Hell when I was growing up (and I think this is still the way it is in Indiana) if you told a cop "F You" he would arrest you immediately and you would be charged.

    You folks of today think anytime an officer does anything that isn`t cool he is abusing his/her powers. It is his/her job to make everyone`s day run smoother, and if you are being the bump in the road, you are the one that is going to get removed.

    stupid cop probably was on his lunch break and couldn`t wait to shove his fat-ass face full of food before going back to work where he sits on the side of the road with a radar gun eating for hours at a time. so like what any hungry fat man would do, he does whatever it takes to get food. even arresting little old ladies.

    haha i just thought of the scene in Jurassic Park where Malcolm was like T-rex doesn`t want to be fed. T-rex wants to hunt. Stupid fat cop.

    BigWaFuu.. cameras aren`t always a deterrant when it comes to the bullying behavior of some officers .. Excessive force is still used sometimes.. It`s on the news every day.. Some people choose law enforcment as a profession because they enjoy pushing people around.. they get off on the power.. You`d like to think that these people are weeded out during training, but, they can`t get all of them..

    P.S. I hate McDonalds fries so I don`t eat them, but my dad always complains about them being too salty.. I think they do that to cover up the fact that they`ve been sitting in that drain basket under the lights for wayyy too long..

But the thing I don`t get is, if the cops want us to stop making fun of them for being fat? Why did he arrest the gradma, because he was mad that his big mac was getting cold?

    To be honest, both the cop and the grandma were being irresponsible. The cop was being an arse when he told her to move; it wasn`t necessary unless she was blocking traffic.
    On the other hand, she refused and then insulted him. They`re both equally guilty... This is why I sometimes hate being American.

    Agree with xxkangrixx. She wasn`t parked illegally, she was waiting at the drive through window, like the people at McDonalds told her to. Logically the McDonalds people should`ve had her pull into a parking spot to wait. Then bring the order out to her. That`s what the one near me does. But who uses logic anymore?
    The cop was completely out of line.
