McDonald's Time Limit Leads to Arrest, Police Complaint

By JON BOWMAN

AURORA (MyFOXColorado.com) - 16-year old Khiara Young and her friends only went to McDonald's for an after school snack.

They didn't know that the eatery had a time limit on how long they could stay in the dinning area after ordering and eating. They found out after the manager called police on a couple of other groups in the burger barn, and the cops came to their table and told them to leave.

Three of the girls with Khiara were eating. She and another girl were getting up to order when an Officer Berger asked them for identification. When Khiara told the officer her ID was at school in her locker, she says the officer grabbed her and forced her outside.

"He was squeezing my arm very hard and I kind of was backing away from him when he slammed me into a cop car and then threw me to the ground and handcuffed me," said Young. "I was in shock!"

"My daughter has a half a heart, and was just released from the hospital for her condition, I can only wonder what would have happened if she had been killed from all the trauma that officer caused her," says Khiara’s mother, Sondra Young.

"She says he grabbed her around her throat when he pulled her up from the ground, who would have been responsible for her if she had been injured?"

The girls were given trespass and disorderly conduct tickets and ordered to come into court.

Police and management wouldn't talk about the incident. The Young's are filing official complaints against the officer.
