Teonna Monae Brown—the Baltimore woman charged last week for a beating up a transgender McDonald's patron while a passive crowd made videos—may have been a repeat offender. The Smoking Gun reports that the 18-year-old had previously been arrested for punching a mother of two in the face, then beating her with an umbrella, then trying to rip out her hair, while friends attacked the lady's daughters. Just as ogres like to hide under bridges and terrorize passing billygoats, violent jerks apparently like to hang out at McDonald's and beat the snot out of strangers.

Fast food fisticuffs: The absolute nadir of depressing Americana. Included in that assessment is the soul-crushing way we consume these messes, via grainy cellphone videos sold for the equivalent of a few Happy Meals to Schadenblog hell World Star Hip Hop. McDonald's patrons are the new gladiators; YouTube the amphitheater for watching them fight to the death. [TSG, mugshot via TSG]
