MILWAUKEE COUNTY — A woman charged in connection with a fight at a Burger King store in Glendale has been sentenced to serve two years probation.
24-year-old Jasmeika Simon and her mother were allegedly involved in a fight with an employee.
Simon in April pleaded guilty to three misdemeanor charges: Two counts of battery and one count of disorderly conduct.
The other woman charged in this case, 42-year-old Latonia Howell has been charged with child abuse — intentionally causing harm, as party to a crime.
She has a final pre-trial hearing scheduled for May 31st, and a jury trial scheduled to begin on June 15th.
According to the criminal complaint, Howell went into the Burger King restaurant on Saturday, February 27th and “wanted to use multiple coupons.” But the worker told Howell it was company policy that only one coupon be used per transaction.
The complaint indicates “Howell became upset and asked to speak to the manager.” The worker tried to rectify the situation — and as Howell left the restaurant, she told the worker “she was going to have her daughter come back to ‘beat their (expletive).'”
About 15 to 20 minutes later, Howell and Simon returned to the restaurant. The complaint says a worker asked if they had been helped. That’s when “Simon replied, ‘Oh, you’re the one’ and ‘Don’t ever disrespect my mom.” The complaint indicates Simon began punching the worker. As she was leaving, “she threatened to ‘go get her gun’ and come back to Burger King.”
When police interviewed Howell, she “felt the female cashier was being rude to her.” She “admitted telling the cashier that she would have her daughter whoop or kick her (expletive).” Howell also added that “she calls her daughter ‘my little monster’ because she’s ‘no joke’ in regards to being able to fight.”
Simon told police she “believed her mother was treated unfairly by an employee and she went to intimidate the employee.”
