Teens Charged For Rapping Order At McDonald's

Four Utah teenagers have been cited for disorderly conduct after they rapped their order at a McDonald's drive-through.

The teens say they were imitating a popular video on YouTube. They rapped their order, which begins with, "I need a double cheeseburger and hold the lettuce ..." once quickly before repeating it more slowly.

Spencer Dauwalder says employees at the restaurant in American Fork told him and his friends they were holding up the line and needed to order or leave.

Dauwalder says nobody was in line. The group left without buying anything.

The teens were later cited by police officers who tracked them to a high school volleyball match.

The Associated Press on Thursday left messages seeking comment with the American Fork police and Oak Brook, Ill.-based McDonald's.

    Kudos to the cops. Given that "rap" music provides the soundtrack to crime, they were acting proactively. Hopefully those teens do hard time, as a deterrent. This week it's "rapping." Next week it's robbing.

    Sorry Kristie, perhaps you should consult a lawyer before you make silly statements. If you prevent a business from doing business, it is a crime. If you selfishly and childishly prevent the line from moving at McDonalds, you are breaking the law. McDonalds has the right to operate without the burden of production halting, singing or rapping idiots highjacking the drive through microphone with their stupid stunts.

    Dumwalter says nobody was in line. Dumwalter's fellow morons are taking his word for it. Dumwalter is lying! There were people in line.

    P- it is not a crime to have your time wasted!!! Get over it! If everyone arrested somebody who wasted their time, then we would all be arrested at some point!!! Must not be a lot for you to do in your small town.

    This is unbelievable. We have mass shootings at Fort Hood, mass shootings in Orlando. A shooting in Jacksonville NC and you arrest some kids for rapping. I am sorry that maybe there is not enough excitement going on in your little utah town that cops have to seek out kids from a volleyball game after they left mind you to arrest them for something as dumb as this. A waste of tax payers money. The cops should be arrested for stupidity.

    Julie: It's not about feeling threatened. It's about having your time wasted and your job insulted.

    Who in their right mind feels threatened by singing teenagers. If that is the case I feel threatened by individuals that wear their big baggy pants down around their knees. I really don't like to look at someones underwear. Who's to say that they don't have a weapon! If we are going to cite teenagers for having a fun then we need to cite people for walking around with their underwear hanging out.

    Where are you from? The south is NOT STUPID!!! There are ignorant people all over the world. There are also stupid people all over the world. There is a difference, in case you didn't know? Utah's employees at that specific McD's were stupid and the officers were also. The teen's could have done ALOT worse. If they were drunk then yes they should have been cited for that, but it doesn't say they were high or drinking. Again, I want to know where you are from!
