Authorities in Florida say a woman’s effort to get a free order of Burger King fries escalated to violence at a fast food franchise in Miami Dade County.
According to Fox News, the incident occurred last month when 42-year-old Natasha Bagley and her girlfriend, 27-year-old Genesis Peguero, entered the restaurant in the 18000 block of South Dixie Highway.
A short time after walking inside on the afternoon of April 2, the pair allegedly demanded the side item from a staff member manning the drive thru.
As a police affidavit submitted in connection with the investigation claimed, a disturbance ensued when Bagley reportedly demanded to know who called the other woman a “b****.”
From there, investigators believe that Peguero threatened to pistol whip the manager if she didn’t open the cash register and hand over the cash inside. The suspect then allegedly prevented the manager from calling 911, grabbing the phone out of the victim’s hand and using it to beat her.
She is further accused of pushing two cash registers to the floor before fleeing the scene.
Bagley joined in on the violence at some point, police claim, and jumped over the counter to kick and hit the female victim.
Both suspects sped away from the restaurant in a black SUV, police say. The alleged victim reportedly identified Bagley from a photo and police arrested her earlier this week. She was locked up without bond and is expected to face criminal charges including armed robbery with assault or battery, criminal mischief and attempted robbery with a deadly weapon, as reported by the Miami Herald.
As of the latest reports available, Peguero was still on the lam.
