Woman Who Accused Wendy’s of Finger in Chili, Bites Off More than She can Chew


The woman who originally accused Wendy’s of having a finger in her Chili was arrested Thursday night at her home in Las Vegas. Seems that Anna Ayala has a pension for such accusations and suing businesses and getting into legal trouble.

Ayala also faces an unrelated felony charge of grand theft in connection with a September 2002 incident, in which she allegedly sold a mobile home that she did not own to a woman who reportedly lost $11,000 in the transaction.

She was charged with grand larceny and attempted grand larceny.

Ayala was taken into custody late Thursday at her Las Vegas. She is being held on a half-million dollars bail.

He released few details due to the continuing investigation and likely court case, but the public announcement served the purpose of saying wherever the finger came from, Wendy’s had nothing to do with it.

Update: AP

“We’re thrilled that an arrest has been made,” Tom Mueller, president and chief operating officer of Wendy’s North America, said in a statement.

Ayala has a litigious history. She has filed claims against several corporations, though it is unclear whether she received any money. She said she got $30,000 from a Mexican food chain after her 13-year-old daughter got sick at one of the restaurant, but the chain denied it paid her anything

Wizbang has more.
