Drunk fast food patron sought quick bathroom exit

An apparently drunk woman caught climbing in the ceiling of a local fast food joint may be facing some time in the joint for her alleged actions Sunday morning.

Around 10 a.m. on Sunday, an employee at the Lakeshore Road McDonald’s knocked on the bathroom door after it seemed like a woman had been in the washroom for a long time.

The employee didn’t get an answer to that knock, but a short time later, employees at the restaurant spotted a woman climbing in the support’s of the building’s suspended ceiling after she knocked down some ceiling tiles and nearly fell out.

Restaurant staff helped the woman down from the ceiling and kept her until police arrived.

“The woman smelled of liquor and appeared intoxicated,” said Const. Steve Holmes.

“She was arrested for being drunk in a public place and was held until she was sober.”

The 22-year-old woman is facing a recommended charge of mischief for damaging the restaurant ceiling and has been released on a promise to appear in court at a later date.

She was also handed a ticket for being drunk in a public place, police say.
