Woman demands more fudge, bites cop

EDMONTON, Alberta, Dec. 9 (UPI) -- A Canadian woman accused of biting a police officer during a fracas over a hot fudge sundae was given probation and community service after pleading guilty.

Elaine Emter, 33, of Edmonton, Alberta, pleaded guilty Wednesday to causing a disturbance and resisting arrest, yielding her 18 months of probation with 40 hours of community service, the Edmonton Sun reported Thursday.


The incident will be removed from Emter's record if she successfully completes the conditions of her discharge, Judge Donna Groves ruled.

Crown prosecutor Laura Marr said Emter became disruptive at a McDonald's drive-through March 15 and insisted there was not enough hot fudge on her sundae. However, workers would not exchange the item without a receipt.

Marr said officers arrived and questioned Emter while she was still in the parking lot and she was "in their faces" shouting.

The prosecutor said Emter tried to drive away, but was stopped and informed she was being charged with causing a disturbance. However, the woman refused to get out of her car and one of the officers had to place her in a choke hold so she could be handcuffed. Marr said Emter then bit one of the officers and they twice used a stun gun on her head to subdue her.
