Michigan woman filmed going on a violent rampage at local Burger King because her burger had tomatoes in it
Porsha Tyler was arrested on March 11 and charged with four misdemeanor counts including obstruction, malicious damage to property, disorderly conduct and assault and batter
A Michigan woman who allegedly attacked staff at a local Burger King for getting her order wrong has now been detained over the incident.
Thirty four-year-old Porsha Tyler, from Harper Woods, was seen in a video released by the Livonia Police Department going berserk at the fast food outlet located at 34835 Plymouth Road, Daily Mail reports.
Speaking to the police, an employee said the woman stormed into the Burger King on January 27 and demanded a refund for a burger she had purchased the day before, claiming it had tomatoes in it despite her request to the contrary.
While Tyler was offered a complimentary replacement meal instead of a refund, she rejected the offer and went on the offensive, according to a Facebook post by the department.
Tyler is seen in the footage with an unidentified man - possibly her fiance - storming into the popular chain outlet. Just moments later, the woman is seen hurling a cookie display at employees behind the counter and hitting one of them in the arm. While the display fell to the ground and shattered, the victim was not injured by the attack.
During her offensive, Tyler also attempted to lunge over the counter to continue the attack before throwing food at the staff and hurling a wet floor sign at them. She left immediately after.
According to WXYZ, when local police tracked her down, she reportedly gave them a different name. Nonetheless, Tyler was arrested on March 11 and charged with four misdemeanor counts including obstruction, malicious damage to property, disorderly conduct and assault and battery.
"We want people to know that this isn't acceptable behavior, whether it's in a restaurant, whether it's road rages. Incidents like this can spill into so much more. We just ask people to take a deep breath and really look at what's important," Police Capt. Ron Taig said.
Tyler is said to have thrown a similar tantrum two weeks after the Burger King incident at a Cricket Wireless in the vicinity.
According to reports, she ruined a phone display after learning the cell phone she desired to purchase didn't come with a new contract. She later stole the phone and was subsequently charged with larceny and disturbing the peace.
Porsha Tyler's pre-trial conference is scheduled for March 26.
