GREAT FALLS - A Great Falls woman was arrested on Monday after allegedly trying to rob Ford's Drive In.

An employee said that Tammy Van Buren complained about her hamburger and demanded a refund, saying it was "gross." 

Van Buren then entered the doorway of the building and was asked to leave, but refused. 

The employee gave her a refund, but Van Buren believed the refund was insufficient and grabbed a pile of money sitting underneath the cash register.

The employee grabbed the money back and again asked Van Buren to leave and tried to push her out of the building. Van Buren then punched the employee in the face. 

The incident was captured on surveillance video, and two witnesses confirmed what happened. 

Van Buren drove away, but was quickly apprehended along the 400 block of 12th Street North.

When she was interviewed by police officers, Van Buren admitted that she was not happy with the refund and thought she was owed more money. She also admitted hitting the employee in the face.

Court documents state that Van Buren has convictions for assault, theft, breach of peace, and issuing a bad check.

Prosecutors requested that bond for Van Buren be set at $15,000.
