Cape Town, South Africa (The Weekly Vice) - The enigma of strange behavior that a simple McDonald's restaurant seems to attract doesn't just limit itself to deviates and drive-thru drunks. It appears to have captured the lunacy of royalty alike.
Lady Amelia Spencer, the 18-year-old niece of Princess Diana was charged with assault after she allegedly became engaged in brawl that left a man unconscious at a McDonald's drive thru.
According to police, Lady Amelia became enraged when a taxi beat her to the drive thru lane of a Cape Town McDonalds.
Investigators say she jumped out of her Mini Cooper, banged on the taxi and then hurled drunken four-lettered words at the taxi's passenger, 27-year-old Ricci Cinti. A male friend who was with Amelia reportedly popped out and joined the argument.
Cinti, who was on crutches due to a recent football injury, was then pulled out of the taxi and knocked to the ground where he was rendered unconscious for a few moments. He was later taken to a local hospital where he was treated for a concussion and a swollen jaw.
Lady Amelia and her friend fled the scene, however witnesses took down her license plate number and called police.
Earl Spencer, the 46-year-old father of Amelia and brother to Princess Diana defended his daughter by stating she was merely defending herself. He did not go on to say how defending herself explained what witnesses saw at the scene, but instead concluded that Cinti fell on his own head.
Although the incident occurred back in late December, it wasn't made public until a few days ago.
Cinti, who works as a self employed "fitter" told local press "She was pretty and well dressed, but I had no idea she was a Lady - and she certainly didn't act like one."
By which we can only reply.
Cinti..... it's the same curse that haunts McDonalds restaurants across the world. Like a fly zapper attracts a fly, it was only a matter of time before one of those flies arrived in a Mini Cooper and pearls.
