Thirty-year-old Kole Olsen appeared in Hornsby Local Court in Sydney, Australia, today on one count of drunk driving, after a bizarre altercation in a McDonald's car park involving 200 chicken McNuggets. He pled guilty to the charges.
On Thursday, the court was told that after a night of drinking earlier this month Olsen drove to Thornleigh McDonald's and ordered 200 chicken McNuggets at the drive-thru.
When he was told the nuggets weren't available, Olsen was said to have responded with: "I want my fucking nuggets ... I'm gonna fuck you up."
Olsen, who in court said he was vegan, then drove four laps around the drive-thru lane of the McDonald's while honking his horn before finally ordering 200 hash browns instead. The meal cost him $230.
After continued abuse from Olsen, McDonald's staff feared for their safety and locked the restaurant doors. Requesting a refund, the drunken Olsen could not remember what he had ordered and instead asked to be reimbursed for 200 large fries and 200 Big Macs.
Police found Olsen drunk at the wheel after they were called by McDonald's staff. He had a blood alcohol level of 0.175. While Olsen avoided jail time, he has been fined $1,000, sentenced to a one-year good behaviour bond, and is banned from driving for nine months.
