I would ask that anyone who does read this story to please read the comment.  The comment puts light on how and what really happened as told by the mother whose daughter was working at the time this occurred. 

This is a real example of how the media reports stories how they see it and not really what happened. 

A 75-year-old grandmother of eight was arrested at a Florida McDonald’s drive-thru after police said she wouldn’t pull her car forward.

Jean Merola was waiting for her coffee and fries when a police officer asked her to move her car. Merola refused, saying she was told to wait there by McDonald’s employees, MyFoxTampaBay reported.

Merola was charged with disorderly conduct and hauled off to Pinellas County Jail, where Merola claims she was searched, photographed and fingerprinted.

Jail records show she was released about 90 minutes later on her own recognizance.
