Sandra Suarez caused quite the ruckus at a Pinellas Park, Fla., McDonald’s in late March. But she likely didn’t expect the incident to become a viral moment shared by thousands online.
On March 24, Suarez, 41, was arrested by Pinella Park police after she went on a destructive rampage at her local McDonald’s, reports Tampa Bay's WTVT. Video footage of Suarez, which was later posted to LiveLeak.com, shows the woman’s three-minute topless flip-out in the fast-food restaurant. Suarez can be seen knocking over registers, emptying a cabinet onto the floor and destroying assorted equipment. She even takes a moment to eat a little soft-serve ice cream.
According to officers, Suarez began her attack after an employee of the restaurant turned down her offer for oral sex in the McDonald’s parking lot. They added that she was taken to Northside Hospital, but doctors revealed she was not under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Suarez was charged with criminal mischief and resisting arrest. She was released on $7,000 bond.
The mother of two told WTVT that the episode was caused by her bipolar disorder and that she doesn’t recall much of what happened. A 15-year resident of Florida, Suarez also said that she is considering bringing her children back to her native Colombia if they encounter any issues from her now-viral moment.
According to Juan Illas, the restaurant's owner and operator, the employees who uploaded the video to LiveLeak.com have been fired.
