Drive-thru rapper found not guilty

A judge in Utah has acquitted a young man of disorderly conduct for rapping an order at a McDonald's drive-thru.
Spenser Dauwalder was cited with the infraction in October after he and three younger friends imitated a rap from a popular YouTube video that begins: "I need a double cheeseburger and hold the lettuce."
The 18-year-old said employees told them that they were holding up the line and needed to order or leave.
But Dauwalder said no one else was in line and the four left without buying anything.
A manager wrote down the car's registration number and called authorities.
Officers in American Fork, about 30 miles south of Salt Lake City, later cited the would-be rappers in a high school parking lot outside a volleyball match.
