Pregnant Woman Charged With Starting Fight At Chuck E. Cheese's (Happy birthday)
wreg ^ | February 15, 2010 | Kelly Hessedal

(Memphis 2/15/2010) An 18-year-old pregnant woman is out on bond tonight after police say she started a riot inside a Chuck E. Cheese restaurant Saturday night.

It happened at the 3600 block of Hickory Hill.

During an interview Monday, Juaneka Key told us she was there with her family celebrating her 2-year-old son's birthday. However, the night ended at 201 Poplar.

"Everybody's putting it on me, five of us got arrested: me, my mom, my sister, my boyfriend, and my step-dad," said Key.

She says it all started because of a long line at the photo booth.

"My sister and little brother were taking pictures, the girl said, 'Dang how long ya'll gonna be?'" said Key.

An argument started, escalated and turned into a brawl when police say Key's step-dad intervened, punched the girl and gave her a black eye.

"Other people [began] jumping in that didn't have nothing to do with the fight," said Key.

Court papers describe absolute chaos with fists flying between both the victim's family and the suspect's. Police say customers and children began panicking and running from the scene to avoid getting involved.

Managers at Chuck E. Cheese's declined comment. Though they have several surveillance cameras there, a worker tells us none were pointed at the incident.

Nearby shoppers call it ridiculous.

"Kinda a kid environment, for adults to act like that is kinda disturbing to me," said Bertha Waller.

"I feel so embarrassed," said Key.

But the teen says she has no regrets and denies any of this was her fault.

"The fact that I'm pregnant, why am I gonna fight? I'm not trying to lose my child," said Key.

Both Key and her step-dad face charges of Disorderly Conduct and Inciting a Riot. The two other suspects face charges of threatening cops as they tried to break up the fight, as well as Possession of Marijuana.

I bet Juaneka could do some damage once she gets started.

Name is Juaneka, had a kid at 16 and about to have another, and started a fight at Chuck E. Cheese...

Why am I not thinking she’s a white kid from the suburbs...

Juaneka seems to think it’s funny. I hope the Judge has the guts to set her straight.

Let me guess.

The family is black.

They were drinking alcohol.

These two factoids are usually the common threads to any “Riot at Chuck E Cheese” story just about anywhere.

They stopped serving beer at the Chuck E. Cheeses in the Milwaukee area because of the high volume of police calls. One on the “near south side” (read near the black and hispanic gang territories) had nearly 300 calls in one year.

Why, there has been numerous brawls at almost every Chuck E. Cheese franchise. It is almost a weekly occurrence at some of their locations.

I’ve taken my nephews to Chuck E. Cheese. I needed to smuggle in something a bit stronger than the Bud to handle the Lord of the Flies like atmosphere.

16 aint that young, especially historically. Besides, at “Juaneka’s” school, she was probably an old maid (pregnancies as young as 12/13 are common in the ghetto).

I have a feeling most of the people involved already had black eyes before the fight started.

My thought exactly. Something about three-syllable names with a long E just before a K or Q is right off the probability graph.

I take my grands to a McDonald's that has an indoor play ground and eating area. I sit down, take my hearing aids out and let them play.

Not to mention a freakish stage show with creepy animal-like robots that herk and jerk in a lifeless manner as they mimic the movements of playing instruments in a soul-sucking band of grotesquery.

I can just imagine it: a scene reminiscent of a cartload of chimpanzees with their asses on fire. And I feel for the poor cops who had to break it up.

By the way, Hickory Hill is popularly called Hickory Hood. When the area was part of Shelby County it was a nice neighborhood. Once the city took it over it went to Hell.

Happens all of the time at this chain. The crowd they draw in certain cities can be expected to fight at the drop of a hat. Unfortunately, the dateline being Memphis told the story before I read further.

Hi, Dallas59,

Sorry to hear that the ones by you are terrible. I'm here in the mid-cities area of the Metroplex, and the one near me is nice. Clean restaurant, clean bathroom, nice staff. We've gone there at least several times a year and never once had any of the problems folks have described.

Never took them to any near Dallas; thanks for the heads up!

Calling All Cars: Trouble at Chuck E. Cheese’s, Again
http://online.wsj.com/article/SB122878081364889613.html

Chuck E. Cheese’s bills itself as a place “where a kid can be a kid.” But to law-enforcement officials across the country, it has a more particular distinction: the scene of a surprising amount of disorderly conduct and battery among grown-ups.

Google Chuck E Cheese +police or +crime or +violence and you’ll get a get an eye opener.

Juaneka? For one thing your dumbass name gives it away. I am sure that the rest of your family (hyphenated-Americans, darker skin negros (Reid) involved in the fight — Shwanl, Jamaal, NKsyandr & Tyrone, are all innocent & just ordinary, peace loving 0bozo supporters.... Dumb asses!!!

Saw the video - all are guilty as sin.

Funniest is when the report shows some quotes from, what I assume, is the police report. A “malay” took place at the CEC.
