In her rage she entered the restaurant, walked behind the counter and attacked the restaurant manager, who was 29 weeks pregnant, allegedly saying she hoped she lost her child and didn’t care about fighting her as she had ‘bail money’.
The manager was sent to the hospital in the incident for broken and bleeding nails.

The manager reportedly asked Hanson if she wanted a refund. She was given a refund for the sandwich, not the entire meal. Hanson asked if someone was going to “put the stuff” on her sandwich, and was told no because of the refund.
“She was laughing at me the whole time and I asked what was funny,” Hanson said. “Then I threw the money in her face.”
Hanson said once she was behind the counter the manager stepped to her. She told police that she doesn’t know who threw the first punch.
Hanson Wanted Another Sandwich After She Received a Refund
“Aren’t you going to make my food?” Hanson asked, in the manager’s statement to the police.
Someone should have taken #ShannelleHanson by the back of her head and repeatedly dunked her face into the hot oil deep fryer,not for a long period of time but quickly,over and over dozens of times to teach her little witch ass a lesson. #McDonalds

The manager refused to make her another sandwich, as Hanson was given the refund she requested. Hanson began to yell and insisted she would make her own food.
Upon hearing that, she approached the manager at the fry machine, where Hanson pushed, punched and slapped her in the face. Onlooking employees separated the two, despite also receiving blows from Hanson.
Hanson Said She Did Not Care That the Manager Was Pregnant
The manager of the McDonalds on 78 Town Street in Norwich was 29 weeks pregnant. Before Hanson climbed over the counter, employees told her about the manager’s pregnancy, which did not deter her in any way.

“She told me she had bail money and didn’t care I was pregnant,” the manager wrote in the statement. “She hoped I lost my child.”
The victim was taken to William W Backus Hospital for an examination. She had multiple broken nails, one of which was bleeding. She said they broke in self-defense.
Police Obtained Video Footage of the Encounter
“On the cameras which were visible, I observed Hanson enter and exchange words with the manager at the counter.” Patrol Officer Anthony Marceau wrote in the report. “I observed Hanson go behind the counter, then patrons looking in that direction.”
People have taken to Twitter to express their opinions. One user says, “These people are unfit for polite society.”
Hanson is Set to Appear in Court
Hanson was charged with breach of peace and third-degree assault of a pregnant woman. She was released on a $5,000 N/S bond and was issued a court date of June 13, 2019 in Norwich Superior Court.
One Twitter user thinks Hanson should be required to take an anger management course and complete community service, “where she is required to serve food to the poor.”
Abhorent behavior. If convicted, Shannelle Hanson, needs anger management course and be sentenced to community service where she is required to serve food to the poor and held accountable! #ShanelleHansenAborhentBehavior
