GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) - The woman accused of firing a gun early Monday morning at a McDonald's restaurant - allegedly because she didn't get bacon on her sandwich - has been arraigned.
Shaneka Monique Torres, 29, was arraigned in Grand Rapids District Court Monday afternoon on three charges, including carrying a concealed weapon, discharge of a firearm in or at a building and felony firearms.

Torres and another woman placed an order at the drive-thru window at the business located near 28th Street and Madison Avenue SE. The workers got the order wrong, police said, and the customers got upset and were told their next meal would be free.

So the women returned to the restaurant's drive-thru window around 3 a.m. and ordered again. Torres was the passenger in the vehicle, and was flirting with the employee in the first drive-thru window. police said. She left that person her phone number in hopes he would call her later.

Torres and the other woman drove up to the second drive-thru window to get their order, which was wrong, police said.

A shooting occurred at this McDonald's restaurant near 28th Street and Madison Avenue SE in Grand Rapids. (Feb. 10, 2014)
Torres pulled out a gun, reached across the driver and fired a bullet through the closed car window, and then the drive-thru window, police told 24 Hour News 8.

The bullet went through the other side of the building, but did not hit anybody. Workers didn't realize what had happened, and thought a coffee pot exploded.

The customers drove away and went to the Torres' house where Torres was dropped off.

Police tracked down the shooter at her home because she left her cellphone number at the restaurant during the first incident so the manager could call so they could discuss the wrong order.
Police arrested Torres at her home.

She is currently being held at the Kent County Jail on a $50,000 cash surety bond.
