WESTBROOK, Maine — They must have had the McRib.
A maniac in Maine marched into a McDonald’s with a chainsaw, leapt over the counter and began menacing employees before walking off with some food and a drink, cops said.
Police in Westbrook, Maine say they received numerous 911 calls that a lunatic was on the loose, chasing people with a chainsaw at McDonald’s.
Every on-duty officer in the department immediately responded to the area and quickly located the suspect at a tire shop nearby. The suspect, identified as 26-year-old Alice Sweet, of Portland, ran from officers, but was quickly caught and arrested without further incident.
Investigators say Sweet entered McDonald’s with the chainsaw, went behind the counter where the employees were actively preparing food, revved the chainsaw intermittently, and stole a drink and some food.
When the manager confronted Sweet in the parking lot, he began chasing the manager with the chainsaw. Sweet also used the chainsaw to damage two vehicles that were at the restaurant.
Sweet was charged with robbery, criminal mischief and refusing to submit to arrest.
