HOPE MILLS, N.C. (AP) -- North Carolina authorities say they used a stun gun on a woman motorist who blocked a McDonald's drive-thru for 20 minutes after employees refused to serve her because she cut in line.

Authorities say 37-year-old Evangeline Lucca bypassed the order screen and line and pulled directly up to the pick-up window Friday afternoon at the restaurant in Hope Mills, about 60 miles south of Raleigh.

Cumberland County sheriff's spokeswoman Debbie Tanner told The Fayetteville Observer ( http://bit.ly/zeCFhN ) that the woman had her 3-year-old daughter in the car when she became confrontational with the workers before deputies arrived.

Tanna says Lucca was subsequently shocked by deputies and charged with second-degree trespass. A phone listing for the woman couldn't be found.

Authorities say the woman's daughter was taken into protective custody.
