Woman Says War Flashbacks
Prompted Assault at McDonald's
Police were called to the restaurant at about 11:30 p.m. because 44-year-old Diane Ayala had assaulted a patron of the restaurant. According to papers filed in District Judge Dominic Cercone's office, she went into the restaurant, approached three men, yelled racial slurs at them and then shoved and hit one of them.
Two of the men are Chinese Nationals. The other is from the United Kingdom and of Greek descent.
Ayala was in the parking lot when police arrived. They say she was highly intoxicated when telling them about her service in Operation Desert Storm.
Ayala is jailed on $2,500 bail and is scheduled for a preliminary hearing on December 5.
