A Jan. 29 bench trial has been set for a teen cited with disorderly conduct for ordering food at an American Fork McDonald's by singing a rap song.

Spenser Dauwalder, 18, and three 17-year-olds were emulating a popular YouTube video with their hip-hop order at the drive-through on Oct. 27.

But the manager became upset, wrote down the car's license number and called police, who cited all four boys for disorderly conduct.

The offense is an infraction similar to a traffic ticket, for which no jail time may be imposed.

Police have said they issued the tickets because the boys were asked several times to leave, and had used foul language.

The trial evidence will be heard by 4th District Judge Howard Maeteni.
