People who know her say Ruth Catherine Driscoll-Dunn is a nice enough person. She's 24 and a student at the University of Georgia in Athens.

But cops say Driscoll-Dunn is not someone you mess with. Especially if you're between her and the counter at McDonald's. The Athens Banner-Herald explains:
Police said Driscoll-Dunn argued Saturday morning with two women over who was first in line when a new cashier opened up, and that Driscoll-Dunn waited for the women in her Jeep Cherokee in the parking lot and veered into them as she drove past.

The women, a 51-year-old Athens resident and her daughter, were knocked down, but not injured, according to police.

An investigator questioned Driscoll-Dunn at police headquarters on Monday, police said, and an Athens-Clarke County Magistrate Court judge signed arrest warrants Tuesday morning.

"She was cooperative, but I really don't want to get into what she said," said Athens-Clarke police Lt. Mike McKeel. ...

A man at Driscoll-Dunn's apartment Tuesday, who said his name is Coby Brazzelle, said his friend knew she might be arrested because of the publicity the case received.

Brazzelle said the UGA student told him she didn't start the argument at McDonald's, and that one of the other women grabbed onto her Jeep as it drove away.

"Somehow the woman's cell phone broke, I think when it hit the side mirror, and they want to charge her with aggravated assault to make her pay for the phone," Brazzelle said.
But police say they have witnesses who swear Driscoll-Dunn threatened to kill the two women after they allegedly cut in line.

Brazzelle, the friend, says Driscoll-Dunn stopped at McD's for one of those delicious breakfasts before she bought school books on Saturday morning.

On November 1, 2006, all charges were dismissed by an ACC Grand Jury....due to absolute lack of evidence that anything actually happened!
