A Marietta woman is allegedly being accused of claiming to be a federal law enforcement agent to get discounted Chick-fil-A meals.
Tara Marie Solem was reportedly arrested on charges for impersonating an officer and disorderly conduct after a July 5 incident, according to an official report.
According to reports, Solem first tried to convince the eatery’s drive-through worker that she was a federal agent. When that didn’t work she went inside.
At the counter of the Macland Cross Circle chicken joint, she argued with two of the managers on the clock, screaming expletives within earshot of a few children.
Still trying to get some discounted food, she flashed a badge in a black wallet to the managers, police said.
“She stated that she was undercover and that for them asking her to be in uniform would blow her cover and possible [sic] get her killed,” according to the warrant.
Solem called the restaurant chain’s corporate office to complain and gave the name, “Agent Solem.”
At one point during the incident, Solem changed her story, saying that she was an agent with the Georgia Bureau of Investigations.
The officer writing the warrant said they checked with GBI, and the agency had no record of “Agent Solem.”
Solem paid $7,370 to bond out of Cobb County jail less than 10 hours after being booked. Her next court date was not listed in the county’s magistrate court system.
A corporate Chick-fil-A spokesman said individual franchises are allowed to set their own discount policies.
