Woman causes disturbance over milkshake

A woman not happy with her order took it out on an employee at the Dairy Queen at 230 New Franklin Road about 4 p.m. Friday.

Restaurant managers told LaGrange police the woman ordered a milkshake through the drive-through window, but sent it back because, “It was not prepared correctly.”

One of the managers said she made a new milkshake, but the woman claimed that employees probably spit in it and berated her with curse words.

According to the manager, the female took the item and drove around the building.

Another manager told officers he was coming out of a back door when the woman threw the milkshake at him, covering his shirt and pants, called him a curse word and drove off.

A restaurant employee stated to officers she knew who the irate woman was and where she worked.

Police were investigating.
