POLK COUNTY, Fla. – On Friday, the Polk County Sheriff’s Office arrested Tianis Jones, who caused a disturbance at a McDonald’s restaurant in Lakeland the day before.
The Lakeland woman, upset with the amount of time her order was taking at a Lakeland McDonald’s drive-thru, stormed inside the restaurant Thursday afternoon, May 19, 2022, and became enraged.
Detectives from the Polk County Sheriff’s Office were looking for 22-year-old Tianis Jones of Lakeland after obtaining an arrest warrant for her, with charges for: Burglary with Assault, Criminal Mischief, and Disorderly Conduct.
The incident began at about 5:34 p.m. at the McDonald’s located at 2606 US 92 East.
That’s when Jones walked inside of the store and began complaining to an employee behind the counter.
After about one minute, Jones turned things violent by first hitting a small plastic sign in the direction of the employee, then several bottles. Jones walked behind the counter and threw cups on the floor and at the employees. A relative of Jones came into the store and tried to hold Jones back and calm her down.
Despite being asked to leave multiple times, Jones remained inside of the store, and called 911 on her cell phone and told the operator, “I’m five month pregnant these people don’t know how to run a m***********g McDonald’s!”
The entire commotion lasted ten minutes before Jones’ relative and another woman convinced her to leave.

As Jones got to the exit, she turned toward the employees, lifted her shirt to expose her belly, then turned and began twerking at them.
“I don’t know why this woman got as angry as she was, but as the saying goes, she’s a few fries short of a Happy Meal. Her actions were outrageous especially for a place where small children often visit. And she caused about one hundred dollars in damages since the items she threw on the floor can’t be used for customers. She better not complain about the food we serve her at the county jail,” said Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd.
In addition to the charges of Burglary with Assault, Criminal Mischief, and Disorderly Conduct, Jones was also charged with Misuse of 911, for calling 911 to complain about the service during the ten minute incident Thursday, May 19th.
