Model Sacked After Tampon Prank at Fast Food Window

Why pick on the guy at the drive-thru window?

An Australian bartender and model says her life has been ruined ever since a late-night prank in which she threw a tampon at a worker behind a McDonald's drive-thru window.

Rebecca Leigh Crimmons, 27, said the wee hours stunt on Sept. 25 was harmless, but she pleaded guilty to assault and lost her job at the Noosa Surf Life Saving Club, where she doubles as a bartender and a promotional model. She was sentenced to community service, but said on Facebook that people have overreacted to the incident.

"When the police came around, I thought 'you've got to be kidding'," she said, according to the Courier-Mail of Brisbane.

She admitted wiping the wet tampon on the hand of worker Luke Clareburt after pretending to find it in her fries. But Crimmins insisted the tampon had merely been dipped in an alcoholic drink. The restaurant staff "made a mountain out of a molehill," she said.

But Clareburt said the incident freaked him out.

"I didn't know what was on the tampon," he said. "She deserves everything she gets. She's got no one to blame but herself."
