Police have arrested a man accused of choking a woman during a confrontation in a Newnan, Georgia McDonald's drive-thru.

Officers tell FOX 5 that they received a call about shots fired at the McDonalds on Bullsboro Drive Sunday night shortly after 9.

According to investigators, a female driver identified as Kadiedre Keith was waiting for food in the drive-thru lane when 25-year-old Brandon Lee Causey walked between the restaurant and Keith's car.

Police say Causey put his food and drinks on top of Keith's vehicle and began to argue with her "for no apparent reason."

When the woman tried to get out of her car, officials say Causey reached inside her vehicle and choked her.
