    COBB COUNTY, Ga. - A Cobb County woman was indicted Thursday for allegedly claiming to be a federal law enforcement agent to get a discount for her Chick-fil-A meal.

    Tara Marie Solem, of Marietta, faces two felony counts of impersonating an officer, according to court documents.

    Police said the incident happened July 5 at the Macland Cross Circle location.

    She initially tried to convince a worker at the eatery’s drive-through window that that she was a federal agent. It didn’t work, so she went inside.

    Solem walked up to the counter of the chicken joint, argued with two managers and uttered expletives within earshot of a few children, according to a warrant.

    Cops said she then flashed a silver badge in a black wallet to the managers to try to prove she was a federal agent.

    “She stated that she was undercover and that for them asking her to be in uniform would blow her cover and possible [sic] get her killed,” according to the warrant. 

    Solem called the restaurant chain’s corporate office to complain and gave the name, “Agent Solem.”

    At some point, she changed her story, saying that she was an agent with the Georgia Bureau of Investigations; the officer wrote in the warrant that GBI said they had no record of such an agent.

    Her next court date was not listed in the county’s magistrate court system.
