Woman Charged in Tire Iron Assault At Taco Bell
ST. PAUL (AP) - A St. Paul woman is accused of bringing a tire iron to a fight over an order mix-up at a Taco Bell.
Prosecutors say Laresha Marie Uting went into the fast-food restaurant with two friends the night of May 26th and started a fight after getting the wrong order at the drive-through window.
A criminal complaint says the 24-year-old woman gave the tire iron to her male friend who hit a 15-year-old customer in the head after he stood up for employees. Authorities say the trio also assaulted a 34-year-old man in the restaurant parking lot.
Uting is charged with second-degree riot with a dangerous weapon. Uting says someone threw a chair at her and her friends in the Taco Bell. Police say the two others have not been arrested.
