LAPLACE, LA — Three teen girls and a woman have been charged after a YouTube video surfaced of a McDonald’s worker being attacked and dragged — by the hair — through a drive-through window, officials say.
The incident was filmed on Aug 26. at a restaurant in LaPlace, La., about 10 miles west of New Orleans, according to the St. John the Baptist Sheriff’s Office.
The video was published on YouTube a couple of days after the attack and shows someone from the car jump out and briefly fight with the 16-year-old McDonald’s worker, the sheriff’s office said on their website.
Then, in the video — shot from the back seat of the car — the attacker pulls the worker out through the window and the worker falls with a “thud” in the audio.
Others from the car punched the worker, deputies said.
Detectives arrested Kailin Holland, 17, of Harvey and booked her with second-degree battery adding that she “was the person who pulled the victim thru the window,” deputies said.
Misdemeanor summonses for simple battery were issued to Sierra Gregoire, age 18, and a 16-year-old juvenile, both of LaPlace.
A woman, Bradnika Gregoire, age 20, of Reserve was issued a misdemeanor summons for disturbing the peace.
It’s unclear which teen or woman filmed the incident.
