Nah, not a police state yet

(Via the Drudge Report)

But coming along nicely, thanks all the same:

A 75-year-old woman was arrested at a Clearwater McDonald's drive-thru, because police say she wouldn't pull her car forward.

Authorities said Jean Merola, a grandmother of eight, was arrested for disorderly conduct after she refused an officer's orders to move her car while she waited for the coffee and fries she ordered at the drive-through window.


I suspect there is more to the story (as in, ""Why did Officer Friendly order her to move her car forward?"), but it isn't in the article. Anyone down in Clearwater know more?
