LAKELAND -- Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd is looking for a woman he says responded to problems with her fast food order by going behind the counter and flinging cups and dispensers at staff.
Judd says 22-year-old Tianis Jones of Lakeland went into the McDonald's at U.S. 92 and Combee Road Thursday to pick up her online order of "a fish filet, a Happy Meal with a chocolate shake, a sweet tea, and a Sprite. He says some of the items got jumbled, and staff asked Jones to pull up to a window as they fixed it. Instead of pulling up, Judd says, she parked and went inside to the counter. "The longer she talked, the madder she got... and she dialed 911 and complained about her order," Judd adds, referencing a silent surveillance video.
Jones knocked dispensers off the counter, then went behind the counter and started tossing cups at the floor and at employees. A woman identified as her sister is seen restraining her. "On the way out of the store, after announcing she was five months pregnant, (Jones) pulled up her shirt and showed her stomach, then twerked her way out," Judd said.
A recording of Jones' 911 call captures her apparently yelling at staff and her sister, telling them she was calling the police and insisting "I want my money. They're trying to cheat me out of my money," and insisting she didn't hit anybody. Much of the call is taken up with profanities.
Judd says Jones' actions constituted burglary and assault, which add up to a first-degree felony. She's also charged with disorderly conduct and criminal mischief.
Jones is still at large. Heartland Crime Stoppers is offering a reward for her arrest.
