Indianapolis police were called around 12:30 a.m. Sunday after a 39-year-old woman and her 60-year-old mother argued outside McDonald’s near 21st Street and Shadeland Avenue, The Indianapolis Star reported.

They found the unidentified victim “covered in ketchup, mustard and pickles,” according to WXIN. Her injuries appeared to be minor.

Police told the Star that the fight started before the pair got to McDonald’s when the woman’s mother said her daughter could no longer stay in her home.

Officer Aaron Hamer told the newspaper that the woman was shouting at her mother and the older woman stopped at the McDonald’s drive-thru to allow other people to get out of the car.

“While her daughter was seated in the front passenger seat, she took a bite out of her cheeseburger,” Hamer told the Star. “The victim stated her daughter yelled, ‘(Expletive), I ought to kill you,’ and hit her in the left side of her face with her hand and the cheeseburger.”

The daughter, who was not identified, jumped into another vehicle and left the restaurant, police said.

Authorities continue to investigate the case.

Viral video captures dramatic chase after alleged theft from construction site

Construction workers are about the hardest-working people in America. Once you’ve put shingles on a roof in the summer, there’s not much else that can hurt you. But one thief apparently decided to try to test his luck, and it did not end well for him.

According to KTVT, a now-viral video taken from a security camera in University Park, Texas, near Dallas captured the dramatic scene. The thief jumped out of a red car, swiped a piece of equipment and tried to make a getaway, police said. But he probably wasn’t counting on the hard-working Texans who weren’t willing to let anything go from their site.

KTVT reported Saturday that the workers chased after the alleged thief – with one worker atop the hood of the getaway car. The video, which has been viewed more than 766,000 times since it was posted to YouTube on Friday, also appears to show the workers ramming the vehicle with a truck.

Police said they are still searching for the alleged thief, who faces a property theft charge, WTVT reported. The worker shown on the car hood in the video was not hurt, police said.

A woman called police Tuesday night after finding the baby boy strapped to a car seat in a parking space in a Katy strip mall, the Houston Chronicle reported.

The child was cold and fussy by the time the woman who called police, Dee Griffin-Stevens, found him, according to KHOU.

“I just pictured my own children when they were that little,” she told the news station. “I call him ‘baby love,’ because I don’t know his name and probably won’t ever know his name, but I loved him and took care of him.”

Authorities estimated that the child was left for at least 45 minutes before he was found.

An employee at a nearby pizzeria recognized the infant and called his parents, according to KHOU. 

Deputies arrested Sarah Shibley, 33, and Gary Collins, 39, on charges of child endangerment.

“Shibley, who works at the pizzeria, said she left the child in the parking lot where she works and thought his father placed him in a car,” KHOU reported.

Shilbey was released on $2,000 bond, according to the Chronicle. Collins remained jailed Friday.
