Kentucky Woman Arrested for Allegedly Shooting a KFC Drive-Thru Window As She Didn’t Get a Fork and Napkin

A woman who allegedly became so infuriated at KFC not giving her cutlery and napkins that she fired shots into the restaurant has been arrested by police.

Jonelle Jade Dare, 33, was at a drive-thru window for the fast food outlet in Shelby, Kentucky at around midday on October 28. After getting her meal, she became upset at the lack of utensils she asked for, according to the Louisville Courier-Journal.

The publication reported witnesses as saying Dare then abused the cashier, drove forward a few feet, pulled out a gun and fired through the drive-thru windows.

Several employees and customers were inside the outlet at the time, but no one was hurt.

Charlene Witt, the manager of a Subway franchise across the road from the outlet, told CBS affiliate WLKY in October: “I just can’t even think about what was going through their head to pull out a gun and shoot a window. It’s scary.”

Shelbyville resident Steve Cook posted an image to Facebook showing the shattered drive-thru window. “This happen[ed] at KFC early today some [woman] got [mad] over paper towels and a fork and shot a 9 mm at workers in Shelbyville,” the caption read.
