WEB HOT: McNugget rage caught on tape

If you haven't seen it by now, you probably haven't been anywhere near the web in the last two days...Newly released surveillance video shows an East Toledo woman who became so enraged that chicken nuggets were not available at a Toledo McDonald's that she punched through the drive-thru window.
Melodi Dushane, 24, stopped at the fast-food restaurant at Front and Main Streets in East Toledo in the early morning hours of New Year's Day and asked for chicken nuggets. When the drive-thru attendant told her the restaurant was only serving breakfast and that the item was not available, Dushane reached through the window and punched the attendant in the mouth.
Video released Monday shows a visibly angered Dushane get out of her car before throwing punches at the attendant. Employees are seen trying to force the window closed, prying Dushane's fingers from the edge. Dushane then gets back into her car and, moments later, emerges to throw a bottle through the glass window. After the window shatters, Dushane is seen getting back into her car and driving off.
McDonald's employees did not report any injuries to police.
Dushane was sentenced to 60 days in jail in July. She also received three years of community control. She was sentenced after pleading no contest to one felony count of vandalism and admitted to being drunk at the time of the incident. She has been ordered to pay over $1,500 in restitution.
