Teens arrested for singing for their supper.

Four teenagers in American Fork, Utah were arrested for disorderly conduct because they tried to sing their order at a McDonald's drive-thru.  They were emulating a popular rap video from YouTube.  Like in the video, the order taker had trouble understanding it, and the teens repeated it.  They were told to order clearly or leave because they were holding up the drive-thru, but they said there was no one behind them.  The manager came out and confronted them, and they left without buying anything, but not without the manager taking down their license and calling police.  The restaurant's owner, Conny Kramer, said, "The employee in question felt that her safety was at risk as a result of the alleged actions of these individuals in the drive-thru, not as a result of them rapping their order...  As such, she contacted the local authorities."  What, were they going to climb through the car window, and then the drive-thru window, which can't be shut for some reason, and is she chained there so she can't walk away from the window?  (Before anyone assumes a subtext, the kids are apparently white, though their rap wasn't.)  They now have a rap sheet, but their parents are fighting the charges.
