The three women, all from Belleville, are accused of throwing water on a female employee Friday afternoon, and striking her several times with their hands and a menu. The waitress refused treatment by ambulance crews.
The women were detained by restaurant employees before police arrived.
Charged with mob action and aggravated battery in a public place are: 21 year old Sharrell Evans, 22 year old Britley Green and 44 year old Geneen Green. Bail for each suspect was set at $50,000. They remain in custody at the Fairview Heights Police Department until arraignment.
A witness at the restaurant said the women were upset because the waitress was filling their water glasses too often.
In December, at the same Red Lobster in Fairview Heights, another waitress was attacked by four customers. She suffered lacerations. Ania Wilkes of Ferguson faces aggravated battery and mob action charges in that case.
First things first, if I am going to Red Lobster you can be damn sure the only thing I’m assaulting are those cheddar biscuits. Now if the staff doesn’t bring them out quick enough, all bets are off.
The fact that there have been two attacks in one year leads me to believe there’s a little more to this story. I havent visited a Red Lobster in years but I recall a family atmosphere not the waffle house at 2 am.
PS are we thinking different baby daddy for this 3rd girl or just a friend?
Already in New York City for next week’s U.S. Open where she was to serve as a line judge, the 70-year-old Goodman was met Tuesday with a felony arrest warrant from her hometown of Los Angeles, where police and prosecutors say she beat her 80-year-old husband to death with a coffee mug in April.
Goodman has been a line judge at the U.S. Open for many years and was scheduled to work at this year’s tournament, which begins Monday, and was about to begin working the tournament’s qualifying matches on Tuesday, said tournament spokesman Tim Curry, who had no further comment.
In 1994 when Goodman had already been officiating for 15 years, she was profiled by the Los Angeles Times and described as an avid tennis fan who got the chance to be a referee.
”It’s exciting,” Goodman said at the time. ”This is my favorite spot and I’m out there rubbing shoulders with the best players. There’s no real way to describe it.”
Goodman said the job was worth the paltry pay, the dirty looks from McEnroe and the verbal assaults from players like Andre Agassi.
”You just can’t let anything bother you,” Goodman said. ”And you can’t take anything personally. If you do, you’re in big trouble.’
First off Andre Agassi should take full responsibility for this right? like Verbal beating after verbal beating on the court just had its way with this lady. I wonder what the final straw was. I’m betting this guy was chewing a graham cracker too loud and she just went off.
