A Harper Woods woman has been arrested for an assault of Burger King employees.

Porsha Tyler, 34, demanded a refund for a burger she bought the night before, then became embroiled in a tirade at the Plymouth Road location on Jan. 27, captured on store video.

Livonia police say that Tyler was upset that the burger was not served without tomato as she had ordered. Tyler was offered a complimentary replacement meal in lieu of a refund. 

Tyler was then captured on security video creating a disturbance. The video showed Tyler launching a cookie display at the employee which struck her in the arm. The cookie display fell to the floor and shattered. 

The employee was not injured during the assault. Tyler then threw food at the employee and tossed a wet floor sign at the counter before leaving.

Tyler was arrested by Livonia Police without incident on a four count misdemeanor warrant on March 11, 2019. 

She was arraigned in the 16th District Court on March 12, 2019 and bond was set at $2,000 or 10 percent. She is scheduled for a pre-trial conference on March 26, 2019 at 9:30 a.m.
