Woman Charged After Shooting McDonald’s Employee Over Fry Discount
A St. Louis, Missouri woman was arrested and charged for shooting a McDonald’s employee after a fight escalated over the price of French fries.
Terika Clay, 30, allegedly started arguing with the unnamed victim through the drive-thru because she was upset about the amount she was asked to pay for her French fries. After the argument escalated, Clay threatened to shoot the employee, according to court documents.
Some time later, the victim left the restaurant to go on a smoke break to discover Clay allegedly waiting outside. Clay confronted the victim and then struck them in the head and shot the victim — all on surveillance cameras, police said. The victim received medical care for minor injuries and was released from the hospital.
Clay was being held on $150,000 bond, although she has a scheduled bond reduction hearing. Clay was not permitted to make contact with the victim or be within 1,000 feet of the victim or the restaurant, a judge ordered.
