Police charge woman after fast-food fracas in Indiana
INDIANA — Authorities in Indiana say a woman who got charged up over a wrong order at Burger King ended up with a charge filed against her.
State police say 22-year-old Heather Naomi Smith called 911 on Friday after receiving the wrong food at the fast-food restaurant in White Township.
The Indiana Gazette reports that while Smith waited for police, she allegedly got out of her car in the drive-through lane and started yelling.
Police say Smith's threatening behavior caused public alarm, and they charged her with disorderly conduct. She could not be reached for comment.
Police say Smith is also wanted on outstanding charges in South Carolina. No further details were available Saturday morning.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
