Not a happy meal! In a bizarre incident, a woman in the US ran over her boyfriend thrice with a pickup truck because he refused to take her to McDonald's.

Crystal Greer Brooks, 33, of Kingsport, Tennessee, was arrested after she ran over her boyfriend Santiago Hernandez, charged with aggravated assault and booked into the city jail.

A Kingsport Police Department report said Brooks' boyfriend was located at the scene of the incident with abrasions to his arms and back, while his clothing, "appeared torn, consistent with being dragged on the pavement."

The police report said that Brooks, her boyfriend and an acquaintance had "all been drinking," then went out to eat last Wednesday, the Kingsport Times-News reported.

Brooks allegedly became angry at their choice of restaurant, which is not identified in the police report, and demanded that her boyfriend pull his pickup truck to the side of the road.

As he exited and walked to the front of the vehicle, she slid behind the wheel.

Brooks then pulled forward and struck her boyfriend, knocking him, "onto the hood and then onto the ground," according to witness statements to police.

She then allegedly accelerated forward two additional times, striking her boyfriend in each instance.

Brooks denied hitting the man with the truck, claiming that he had, "jumped onto the hood." Based on his injuries and tattered clothing, police determined otherwise.

An individual who accompanied the pair attributed the attack to the golden arches, saying Brooks, "was mad they didn't stop at McDonald's."

The victim, who is the father of Brooks' child, was given a domestic violence form and transported to a friend's residence.
