Two Arrested After Fight Breaks Out Over Crab Legs in an Alabama Buffet Line
It just so happened that Officer Gerald Johnson had just sat down to eat his meal at the Meteor Buffet in Huntsville when he heard a commotion coming from the line. The sound of dueling tongs and breaking plates caught his attention and he said a woman was beating a man.
According to the officer, people were waiting in line for at least 10 minutes for servers to bring out another batch of crab legs. When they were brought out, a group of customers began complaining about people cutting the line, and a physical fight ensued between two people: John Chapman and Chequita Jenkins.
