LaPlace McDonald's Attack

SEPTEMBER 2--Police have charged a quartet of women in connection with an attack last week on a 16-year-old McDonald’s employee who was pulled through a drive-thru window and beaten outside the Louisiana restaurant.

As seen above, video of the attack was shot by a passenger in a vehicle that pulled up Wednesday night to the drive-thru window at the McDonald’s in LaPlace, a city about 25 miles west of New Orleans. The clip surfaced online days after the August 26 incident.

Police today announced the arrest of Kailin Holland, 17, for felony battery. Pictured at right, Holland, who is accused of pulling the victim through the drive-thru window, was released from jail on a $10,000 bond.

Detectives also issued misdemeanor summonses for simple battery to Sierra Gregoire, 18, and a 16-year-old girl. Additionally, a misdemeanor summons for disturbing the peace by fighting was issued to Bradnika Gregoire, 20.

After exchanging words with the victim, Holland grabbed the teenager by the hair and yanked her through the drive-thru window. The victim struck the side of the vehicle--and may have broken the driver’s side window--before landing on the ground between the car and the eatery.

The McDonald’s employee told cops that after she was pulled through the window, the driver “started punching her.” She noted that “several other female subjects accompanied the assailant and punched her as well,” according to investigators.

The suspects fled the McDonald’s (seen below) in the vehicle. The victim, who was evaluated at the scene by EMS workers, declined medical treatment.

The McDonald’s worker provided investigators with the names of some of the assailants, and detectives were aided by other witness accounts and surveillance video. Police say an “ongoing dispute” between the victim and her assailants prompted the attack. (2 pages)
