Talk about your tossed salad and flying meatballs.
A night out at a local 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 Taser gun to control the fight.
Westminster police said two families who've 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 say 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 Taser gun, Topkoff said.
The group now faces charges of assault, disorderly conduct and criminal mischief.
They might be Rednecks.
Olive Garden--When You're Here, You're Family!!
Even the Hatfields and McCoys
Fettucini's afraid. Oh!
You might be a Redneck if you throw food in an Olive garden if you've never eaten there before. If you've eaten there before your more likely a food critic from Bon Apetite Magazine.
Do you think there might have been alcohol involved?
The poor chef's creations weren't even appreciated. Bah!
Plenty of mob hits in Italian restaurants. I guess pasta just incites violence.
Was Frank the Tank from 'Old School' involved in this??
It's a vendetta! At least they only threw spaghetti.
All the salads and breadsticks you can throw.
Another example of class-less people, who do not know how to handle what they say or do in public. Nancy, Henry, and Howard are the leaders of that type of class-less actions.
Everybody's thinking it, I'm just saying it: Flying Spaghetti Monster.
Clearly an inter-denominational dispute during a Flying Spaghetti Monster ritual.
Anybody ever seen one of their meatballs? They weigh about a pound and a half. Size of a baseball. They would break your neck if you got hit in the head with one.
Nah. You might be a Redneck if your house has 3 flat tires. All I see here is her spare tire but the house looks straight, straighter than the groom.
What the hell were they fighting over---who wanted the last meatball. I thought everyone was family at Olive Garden? LOL
I've seen them advertising their 'Never-ending Pasta Bowl' recently -- or as I call it, 'Pasta Til Ya Puke.'
