Flying Meatballs: Feuding Families Have Food Fight At Olive Garden Families Had Been Feuding For Some Time, Police Say
UPDATED: 8:37 am PDT September 9, 2005
Talk about your tossed salad and flying meatballs.
A night out at a Colorado Olive Garden Restaurant landed six people in jail after two families who've had a long-standing beef with one another brawled inside the restaurant.
Valerie Baca, Lawerence Bettale Jr., Rene Bettale, Lawrence Bettale Sr. and two teens were arrested after an off-duty police officer used a stun gun to control the fight.
Westminster, Colo., police said two families who have been feuding were seated near one another Wednesday night and it came to a boiling point when one of the families was leaving and made a snide remark or gesture to the other family.
Police said bottles were broken, furniture was thrown, food was flying.
An off-duty police officer had just walked out of the door when the fight broke out, so a person ran out to get him, said Stephanie Topkoff with Westminster Police Department.
The officer tried to tame the fighting families and eventually had to use his stun gun, Topkoff said.
The group now faces charges of assault, disorderly conduct and criminal mischief.
Are you saying, "MIYEEEEEEEEAH!"
Usually, it's the gay waiters who are fighting at the OG.
