After a run-in with Bayside police, a McDonald's employee got a "Get Out of Jail Free" card from his manager.
Just before 10 a.m. on Thursday, a Bayside officer was stopped at a traffic light at Port Washington and Brown Deer Roads and ran the license plate of the car in front of him. The registration had expired in August the police report said.
When the light turned green, the car drove off and into the McDonald’s parking lot, 8739 N. Port Washington Rd. The officer pulled the car over and when he spoke to the driver, the man said the car belonged to his girlfriend’s grandmother.
The 24-year-old Wauwatosa man was not only driving a car with expired registration, but his license had expired in 2011 and he had a warrant through Brown Deer police.
He was arrested for the outstanding warrant according to the report. Before leaving the parking lot, the man told police he worked at McDonald’s and could make arrangements to have his bail posted. The McDonald’s manager provided the man with the $328 for bail money.
The Wauwatosa man was taken to the station, booked, and cited for operating without a valid drivers license and a 15-day correction notice for having an unregistered vehicle according to the report. Bond was posted using the money he obtained from his boss and he was dropped back off at McDonald’s the report said.
