A 39-year-old Spartanburg woman with a long criminal record was arrested Sunday after she was accused of stuffing a McDonald's sandwich down her pants and then screaming at a restaurant employee that she was cheated out of the second sandwich she ordered.
Lori Shannon Turner of 7136 Asheville Highway, RM 114, was charged with public disorderly conduct and released from jail Sunday evening on $262 bond.
Around 10:30 a.m. Sunday, a Spartanburg County sheriff's deputy responded to a disturbance at the McDonald's at 500 Hearon Circle. When the deputy arrived, a McDonald's employee stated that an intoxicated woman was causing a disturbance inside the restaurant.
According to an incident report, Turner ordered two sandwiches and two small coffees. When a cashier gave Turner the bag with the sandwiches while her coffee was being prepared, the report states, Turner took one of the sandwiches out of the bag and stuffed it down her pants.
The employee told the deputy Turner then claimed she was shorted one sandwich, and began demanding another free one. When the store refused, the report states, Turner got belligerent so an employee called 911.
The deputy reported that when he arrived on the scene, he heard Turner screaming at the cashier to “give me the (expletive) sandwich.” When the deputy noticed a large grease stain on the front of Turner's pants, he asked Turner to remove the food but Turner said she didn't have anything in her pants, according to the report.
A female officer was called on the scene to search Turner, who then reached inside her pants, removed the sandwich and placed it on the hood of the officer's patrol car, the report states. The deputy reported that Turner, who had a strong odor of alcohol on her, continued shouting profanities in front of other patrons, including several small children.
Turner's criminal record since 2008 includes charges of assault, shoplifting, forgery, resisting arrest, petit larceny, two counts of public disorderly conduct and four counts of inhaling aromatic hydrocarbons.
