Arrests Made in Des Moines McDonald’s Brawl
The Des Moines Police Department has made two arrests with assault charges following an incident that occurred at a McDonald's Saturday night.
Valerie Anne Shepherd, 21, and Jesse James Downs, 24, were arrested and charged with assault causing injury and disorderly conduct. The two were involved in a brawl that took place at a McDonald's over McChicken sandwiches.
The woman was caught on video swearing and screaming at the manager, demanding she be given her food. When the manager handed her a sandwich, Shepherd threw it in her face and climbed over the counter.
“Within probably 10 hours, we had several tips that identified her as the person in the video,” Des Moines Police Sgt. Paul Parizek said. “So, it wasn't too hard from that point on for our detectives to get it wrapped up.”
Police said no McDonald's employees are under investigation.
