According to Atlanta police, she arrested a woman after she attacked her colleague after a brawl in a McDonald’s store.
The car struck Zoe Gunn during an altercation at a drive-thru fast-food restaurant in the north of the city.
According to the police, the fight between Destiny Allen and another nameless employee had begun. Gunn, also a McDonald’s employee, is said to have intervened to end the argument when she was hit by the car.
The video showed two women – both were indistinguishable due to the poor quality of the footage, which was struggling on the floor.
In the short, unverified clip, someone can be heard saying, “You have to stop fighting, man,” before someone who appears to be wearing a McDonald’s uniform steps in and tries to stop the fight.
Gunn is said to have gone outside to make sure Allen left.
The police claimed that Allen then got into her car, backed into Gunn and pushed her against the restaurant window. Photos showed broken glass at the crime scene.
By the time the officers arrived at the restaurant, Gunn was already on her way to the hospital for treatment.
In a statement, the police said: “Gunn … went out into the town’s parking lot to make sure that the employee involved in the dispute, who was identified as Destiny Allen, left the scene.
“Allen and the other employee continued arguing as Allen got into her vehicle. Then she put it in reverse and hit the gas, hitting Gunn and driving her into the window of the fast-food restaurant.
“Allen was arrested at the scene without incident. She was taken to Fulton County Jail. Gunn was last reported in stable condition with injuries to her legs.”
The incident occurred on November 27th at approximately 12:30 in the morning.
Allen was charged with grievous bodily harm and property damage.
Gunn is said to have been unable to work because of the pain and had been forced to move to a homeless shelter.
Her sister, Amia Turner, said: “If she had hit my sister harder, she probably would have killed my sister.
Talking to Fox 5 Atlanta, she added: “That really hurt my feelings because she didn’t deserve that. She really did not, she was just trying to do the right thing.
“All she does is cry. She will call crying and say, sister, that I miss you and I wish you were here to help me.
“She can’t get up and down the stairs anymore. She had to go to a homeless shelter. She’s in a homeless shelter right now.”
John Tamasi, the manager of McDonald’s on Northside Drive, said in a statement: “Our greatest priority is always the safety and well-being of our employees and customers in our restaurants.
“This behavior is not tolerated in my organization and we will take appropriate action. We continue to work closely with the police department on this matter”.
