Women Ham It Up for Mugshots After Alleged Assault
Mary Jordan   (Facebook)

Mary Jordan was charged with assault and child endangerment last week in Bellevue, Ohio—but you wouldn't know it from her smiling mugshot. Police say Jordan and friends Ashley England and Sammie Whaley attacked a McDonald's worker in a restaurant parking lot on June 8 because they thought the service was too slow, reports Fox 59. Jordan and England's children were not just witnesses to the incident—which was caught on surveillance cameras—but they even "participated," police write on Facebook.

All three women from Sandusky, Ohio, were arrested the next day. In addition to Jordan's charges, Whaley was charged with assault, and England was charged with assault, theft, and child endangerment; it isn't clear what she allegedly stole. When it came time for the women to have their mugshots taken, Whaley put on a straight face. England and Jordan, however, both smiled broadly, per Boing Boing, drawing a host of negative comments online. Jordan is being held on a probation violation, per WTSP. (More Ohio stories.)
