Police: Woman brought horse into British McDonald's

July 22, 2013 at 3:58 PM

WHITEFIELD, England, July 22 (UPI) -- Police in Britain said they ticketed a woman accused of bringing her horse into a McDonald's when she was refused drive-through service.

The Greater Manchester Police, Whitefield Division, said they received a call Saturday from workers at a Whitefield McDonald's about a woman on a horse.

The workers said the woman attempted to order at the restaurant's drive-through, but she was refused service due to a company policy and brought the horse inside the eatery.

The horse "ended up doing his business on the floor," police said in a release.

The sight and smell of the horse's business "caused obvious distress and upset to customers trying to eat, as well as staff members," the release said.

The woman was issued a fixed penalty notice for causing alarm and distress to customers and workers at the restaurant.
