Fort Collins Criminal Mischief Attorney
Chicken Nugget Fit

Two women caused quite a scene about a chicken nugget issue at Chick-Fil-A and caused property damage, resulting in Criminal Mischief charges.

There is not much as frustrating as not getting your correct order at a Fort Collins, Loveland, or Estes Park fast food restaurant. But does the frustration reach levels of throwing major fits? Apparently, one family felt that a fit was justified after trashing a Chick-Fil-A over a chicken nugget incident. According to the news, two men were arguing with the Chick-Fil-A employees over an unclear incident with chicken nuggets. The employees refunded their money and the men left, however, two females returned shortly – shaking and pounding on the locked door until they were able to get in, at which point they began trashing the place. They threw things off the counters, broke a vase, and continued to complain about the chicken nuggets. How bad could these nuggets have been? If the fit throwers are ever caught, they will likely be facing Criminal Mischief charges, and be required to attend a food etiquette course.

Larimer County Criminal Mischief Lawyer: What is the Definition of Criminal Mischief?

A person commits criminal mischief when he or she knowingly damages the real or personal property of one or more other persons, including property owned by the person jointly with another person or property owned by the person in which another person has a possessory or proprietary interest, in the course of a single criminal episode.

There was definitely property damage after the women were done throwing their fit and the amount of damage will decide the punishment.
