A customer complaint at a downtown Mexican restaurant reportedly became physical, and a bit messy, leading to an arrest by La Crosse police.
India James of Onalaska is accused of disorderly conduct and bail jumping. During a court appearance by James on Monday, Judge Gloria Doyle ordered a signature bond, and told her to have no contact with the Qdoba restaurant on 3rd Street.
City police said that last week, James argued with an employee at the Qdoba counter, demanding a refund for burnt chips. She reportedly became more upset as the employee helped other customers.
Right after James was given the refund, she reportedly threw a cup of queso at the worker’s face and shirt, and eventually drove away before police arrived.
Officers saw James downtown again early Sunday morning, and questioned her about the incident. James said she remembered being at the restaurant, but claimed she didn’t know why she was being charged.
