Four Vallejo women were arrested Sunday after they began to “terrorize” Jack in the Box restaurant employees because their drive-through order was too cold, police said. 

The food fracas began around 12:45 p.m., after the women received their order at the burger vendor’s drive up window at 1610 Lewis Brown Road, police said. 

“They said the food was too cold,” said Lt. Herman Robinson of the Vallejo Police Department. The manager offered to give the women a new meal and asked them to pull into the parking lot, according to Robinson. 

“They weren’t satisfied with that,” Robinson said. “They wanted immediate service.”


The women began to throw drinks and food at employees through the drive-through window, Robinson said. The manager also told police that one of the women pulled an object out of the glove box he believed to be a gun, but didn’t brandish or point it at anyone.

“Subsequent to that, they enter the restaurant, where they basically terrorize the employees,” Robinson said.

Robinson said the women knocked over a cash register, along with drink cup lids and straws. One of the employees was struck in the head with an object, Robinson said. 


Although the women got into their car and drove off, employees were able to get the license plate number on the vehicle, Robinson said.

Officers traced the vehicle back to where it was registered and saw the car being driven in the area, Robinson said. Ultimately, the car was stopped in the 300 block of Park Wood Avenue. 

The manager from the Jack in the Box was brought to the area and he identified all four women. No gun was found inside the car.

The four women were arrested and placed in Solano County Jail. Keyira Gipson, 28, was arrested on suspicion of probation violation, vandalism and trespassing. 

Ocialeena Nelson, 24; Alani Reed, 19; and Najah Williams, 19, were arrested on suspicion of vandalism and trespassing.
