An employee told Black that she would assist her if she would stop yelling. However, Black then threw her burger at the employee and left, with her husband following behind.
The arrest report said that Black called the employee a racial slur and said to "shut up" while outside. Multiple witnesses and surveillance video confirmed the incident.
Officers reportedly identified Black and her address. They went to speak to her and she told them that she was upset at the thickness of the tomato on her sandwich. She said she became angry when the employee was not fixing the burger and "tossed it at her."
The arrest report goes on to say that Black admitted to saying the racial slurs as well. Black faces several charges.
