Hancock ordered a Big Mac with extra cheese from the McDonald’s in Butler Township January 16.  When the sandwich didn’t have the extra cheese she ordered and paid for, she drove to the McDonald’s to get the order done correctly. 

After discussing the matter with McDonald’s personnel, McDonald’s employees called police. 

According to Wright, as Hancock was leaving the restaurant, Butler Township police officers confronted her and during the incident she was punched repeatedly in the head, sending her to the hospital where she was diagnosed with a head injury.
