The video shows Dushane exiting her car to punch two restaurant employees through an open drive-thru window. After restaurant workers succeeded in closing the window, Dushane threw a bottle from her car through the window. Dushane then climbed back in her car and drove away.

Dushane, who admitted she was drunk during the incident, was sentenced to three years probation and 60 days in the Corrections Center of Northwest Ohio on July 7. Judge Linda Jennings also ordered she pay $1,531.97 in restitution to McDonald's for the broken window, food product ruined by the glass, and loss of business because the restaurant was forced to close temporarily
