A woman is facing numerous charges following an incident that began in the drive-thru at a McDonald's restaurant in Dover.

According to Dover Police, officers responded to McDonald's on Forrest Avenue at about 3:00 a.m. on Saturday for a report of a customer who was cursing at employees about her order and appeared to be intoxicated. 

Police said 35-year-old Dana Courtenay drove away as officers arrived. The officers tried to get her to stop by activating their emergency equipment on their vehicles. Courtenay came back to McDonalds and returned to the drive-thru.

According to police, Courtenay got out of her vehicle, screamed and cursed at the officers, fought with them when they tried to take her into custody and spit on two officers.

Courtenay is charged with reckless driving, resisting arrest with force, disorderly conduct, disregard of a police officer's signal, offensive touching of law enforcement, and assault and threatening of law enforcement. She was released on $9,700 unsecured bond.

Police also said Courtenay refused all sobriety tests, but a search warrant was obtained for a blood draw at Kent General Hospital.
