Brutal Assault Occurs At Restaurant Over Cold Chicken And Fries

Police continue to search for two customers who violently assaulted the mother and daughter owners of a restaurant after complaining about cold chicken and fries.

Police continue to search for the two disgruntled customers who assaulted a mother and her daughter at the family-owned Qwik Chick takeout stand in Baxley, Georgia, The Root reported. The attack was completely unprovoked, police said. 

Last Thursday afternoon, owner Jeanette Norris served the couple, identified as Latasha M. Smith and Nathaniel Eric Smith. They later claimed that their chicken was cold and they didn't receive enough fries.

Norris refunded their money, but Smith began punching and slapping her in the face as they talked. Norris' 15-year-old daughter tried to intervene but was punched in the face by the man. The couple then quickly drove away.

"She went bersek," Norris told WTOC. "They both lost it, him and her both; started cussing and beating on the window." 

In the security footage, you can see Norris' daughter being knocked to her feet by the punch.

"Who does that?" Norris said. "Who punches a child like she's a grown man standing there. "

"I've been here, what, 41 years — 30 of them as chief," Chief James Godfrey of the Baxley Police Department said to WTOC. "I have never seen anything like this. I've never heard of anything like this."

The Smiths have a history of violence, with active warrants out for aggravated battery and cruelty to children. Here's hoping they're caught before they lash out on anyone else.
