A woman was arrested for assaulting a restaurant worker over cold chicken nuggets, police in Florida said.

According to police, 20-year-old Amanda Lauren Nunziata of Hudson, went to a restaurant on Friday night,
where she ordered chicken nuggets.

She bought 10 chicken nuggets at the Twistee Treat on Laredo Road. After she ate seven nuggets, Nunziata complained that the remaining three were cold and asked for new ones.

The Twistee Treat staff obliged and cooked three fresh nuggets before handing them to Nunziata. However, this was not what Nunziata had in mind.

She wanted 10 new nuggets or a refund, a request that the woman behind the counter could not agree to due to the company’s return policy, according to the police report.

Nunziata began shouting at the worker before throwing the tray with the remaining sauce and nuggets at the worker.

The food hit the worker in the face. Her cheeks and shirt were covered in honey mustard.

Police arrested Nunziata on a charge of battery. She also had an outstanding warrant for reckless driving and eluding a law enforcement officer who had the lights and sirens activated.

She was released from the Pasco County Jail after posting $11,000 bail.
