Brawl Alabama crab legs, reportedly used as weapons.
A full-on brawl broke out at a Huntsville, AL, restaurant Friday after two very hangry diners could not agree on who was first in line for the fresh boiled batch of crab legs. Local police officer Gerald Johnson was dining at Meteor Buffet when he says the pair, identified as Chequita Jenkins and John Chapman, began tossing dishes and wielding tongs as sword-like weapons.
Things reportedly got heated after the patrons waited nearly 20 minutes in line for their crab legs. When the food finally arrived, there was a dispute—or as Johnson describes it, a “fencing match”—between Jenkins and Chapman. “Everyone was saying, ‘They cut me in line. She cut me in line. He cut me in line. I was here first,'” he told WHNT 19 News. “Literally, as I sat down and maybe took two bites out of my plate, there’s a woman who’s beating a man. People are moving around, plates are shattering everywhere.”
According to the Associated Press, Jenkins was dining with her children at the time of the incident and was later charged with third-degree assault. Chapman, who walked away with a cut to his head, was arrested for disorderly conduct. Both are scheduled to appear in court.
Both offenders admitted to letting tempers sway their judgement, Johnson added. I mean, you’re not you when you’re hungry (cc: Snickers). Kind of, sort of, maybe relatable?
