A woman at a Waco McDonald's drive-thru decided she wasn’t getting her chicken nuggets fast enough so she called 911 for help.

“Yes, it happens,” said Waco police Sgt. W. Patrick Swanton on the police department’s Facebook page.

“We actually had the chicken nugget call last (Friday) night!”

It began when management at the restaurant called police to report a woman was parked in their drive-through lane and was refusing to move, in spite of the fact there were several cars behind her.

Officers were responding to that call when the women, herself, called 911 to complain.

The woman, who still was parked in the drive through lane, told officers she was upset because it was taking so long for her order to arrive and that she thought the nuggets ought to be free,” Swanton said.

“Yes we went on this call,” Swanton said.

“No, she did not get them for free,” Swanton said.

In fact, management at the restaurant returned the woman’s money and police sent her on her way … without her nuggets.

“Yes, we actually tied up two officers on this call,” Swanton said.

“We definitely have better things to do than respond to a call about chicken nuggets not being served quickly enough,” Swanton said.

Swanton credited the restaurant's employees for handling the situation "the right way."
