Ah, you know it’s the Christmas season when there’s a nip in the air, heavy snow in the Northeast, and squirrels are being thrown into the Hardee’s drive-thru window.
To quote Bartonville police:”Hardee’s worker Deborah Roberts, who waited on Thompson, said that after Thompson placed his order, “he asked for extra nuts for his squirrel as he pet it.” After telling Thompson that she did not believe the animal was real, Roberts turned away from the window. That’s when the motorist said, “Yes, it is,” and “threw the dead squirrel into the restaurant.”
Which raises three questions:
1). Were Christopher Thompson, 26, and the extra nutty squirrel issued a village ordinance citation for disorderly conduct. Yes.
2) Do police believe the incident is related to so-called “fire in the hole” acts where drivers record themselves throwing drinks back through drive-through windows and post the videos online.
In a separate but related incident, Bartonville police urged shoppers to remain alert following reports of a Christmas flasher in the downtown area.
