Tara Lyons Jail Booking Report

Oakland Park, Florida (The Weekly Vice) - Tara Lyons, a 38-year-old Florida woman, was jailed last Wednesday after she allegedly became so angry with Burger King employees, she hopped the order counter and chased most of the employees out of the store.

According to the Broward County Sheriff's Office, all hell broke loose inside an Oakland Park Burger King when an angry 5-foot, 11-inch, 325 pound woman hopped the order counter began a food fight with employees who were running for dear life.

Investigators say it all began when the woman ordered a breakfast sandwich through the drive-thru window Wednesday morning. Lyons allegedly stormed into the store shortly after receiving her order and complained that someone had spit in her food.

After a short conversation with a store manager, Lyons attempted to climb over the counter, however, the manager succeeded in pushing Lyons off the counter and onto the floor.

After leaving for a few minutes, Lyons returned to the order counter with renewed anger. That's when she climbed over the counter, grabbed a cup of scalding hot water and began chasing employees with it.

Some employees had locked themselves in the manager's office while other employees fled out through the store's back door and onto a county bus. When deputies arrived, the entire store had been cleared of most employees and customers. Condiments, wrappers and food product had been thrown at employees by the handful and were found scattered across the kitchen floor.

Lyons was booked into the Broward County Jail on two counts of aggravated assault with intent to commit a felony and burglary with assault.
