A 77-year-old Florida woman is facing a felony charge for slinging a burger at a fast food worker because it was not prepared, “her way.”
Wildwood Florida police say, Judith Ann Black, a resident of the popular Villages retirement community, admitted to whipping a Whopper at a Burger King worker while shouting expletives and racial slurs at the victim.

According to the arrest report, after hurling the burger, Black stormed out of the restaurant and hopped into her pickup truck. But a surveillance video caught the license plate on the back of her truck as she sped away.

Police ran the plate, tracked her down and arrested her.

Black told police she was upset with the “thickness of the tomato” on her Whopper and she wanted it her way like the catchy slogan.
Police said the evidence of “prejudice” enhances a misdemeanor battery charge to a felony.
