A Grand Rapids, Mich. woman was convicted Wednesday and now faces up to seven years in prison after she fired a bullet at a McDonald’s drive-thru because she didn’t get any bacon on her burger.

Yes, this really happened.

Shaneka Monique Torres‘ troubles began on Feb. 10, 2014, when she drove to the McDonald’s on 28th Street near Madison Avenue SE to order bacon cheeseburgers with a friend. Torres was served burgers without bacon, asked to speak to a manager, and was promised a complimentary bacon burger the next time she ordered at the restaurant.

That happened to be later that night. According to WZZM, Torres and a friend placed the same order and the same thing happened — no bacon. That’s when the shots rang out.

Torres lashed out at a worker before yanking out the handgun and firing one round. The bullet shattered the driver’s side window of the Chevy Tahoe before sailing through the restaurant.

Torres was arrested about 30 minutes later at her home about a mile from the restaurant.

Torres’ defense attorney, John Beason, said the shooting was an accident, according to the news outlet. He added that the firing of the gun had nothing to do with the bacon-less burger.

Yeah, okay.

The 30-year-old was charged with “carrying a concealed weapon, discharging a firearm into a building and felony use of a firearm,” after a jury deliberated for just an hour.

Her sentencing is set to take place April 21.
