Police: Woman rammed car in drive-through

LARGO, Fla., Feb. 20 (UPI) -- A Florida woman accused of ramming another car in a fast-food restaurant's drive-through lane was upset about another woman's slow ordering, police say.

Largo police said Jennifer Lynn Betterly, 24, rammed her Ford Focus into the vehicle in front of her at the KFC/Taco Bell drive-through Saturday because she was angry about how long it was taking the woman in front of her to place an order, The Tampa Bay Times, St. Petersburg, reported Monday.

Betterly was arrested about an hour later and police found she had been driving on a suspended license and was in possession of a single pill of the prescription sleep drug Ambien. She was unable to prove the pill had been prescribed to her, police said.

Betterly was charged with felony counts of aggravated battery and possession of a controlled substance. She was also charged with misdemeanor counts of driving with a suspended license, reckless driving and leaving the scene of a crash.
