Judge Sentences Ohio Karen to Work at Fast Food Restaurant After She Threw Burrito Bowl at Chipotle Manager

DATELINE: PARMA, Ohio – A woman found guilty of throwing her Chipotle order at an employee was sentenced to jail. She was also given the chance to work off part of the sentence by working at a fast-food restaurant.

Parma Municipal Court Judge Timothy Gilligan sentenced 39-year-old Rosemary Hayne on Tuesday. She had been found guilty by the judge of one count of assault.

“You didn’t get your burrito bowl the way you like it and this is how you respond?” Judge Gilligan said during sentencing. “This is not real housewives of Parma. This behavior is not acceptable.”


Then, Hayne apologized to both the court and Russell, but attempted to explain the motivation behind her assault. “If I showed you how my food looked and how my food looked a week later from that same restaurant, it’s disgusting looking,” Hayne said.

“I bet you won’t be happy with the food you are going to get in the jail,” Judge Gilligan responded to Hayne.

Russell, the victim, tells TODAY.com she left her job at Chipotle and suffers from anxiety as a result of the incident. “I was telling the judge she left the building and went to her car. And she came back and that’s what she did to my face,” Russell recalls. “We live in a world right now where she could have done anything she wanted. She could have punched me in my face or pulled a gun out. I’m lucky that I only got a bowl thrown on my face.”


The judge sentenced her to 180 days in jail and suspended 90 of those days. He said he would give her 60 days jail credit if she worked at least 20 hours per week at a fast food restaurant for two months. Hayne said she planned to get a job at a restaurant.

✱ Parma is about a 70 minute drive from Youngstow  on what they call the Northwest route.
