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.

Those kind of names just begs people to be racist.

Jauneka's parents should have been more concerned about giving her a good future rather than a unique name.

Never take hallucinogens prior to going to Chuck E. Cheese. Just trust me on that.

It may be that so many people acquired their vocabulary from TV instead of books. How many would recognize "melee" if they saw it in print? How many know that the Malays are an ethnic group?

I know a retired HS teacher who is always bragging about modern education. My impression of him is that his education is very narrow. I'm afraid he is typical.

Chuck E. Cheese. The fights always break out at a Chuck E. Cheese? Seriously, this must be the 15th or 20th story I’ve read over the last five years about a rumble breaking out at a Chuck E. Cheese.

Oddly enough, none of them have been over the food. And I use the term “food” very, very generously here.

essentially the police were forced to be a six days per week trash removal unit. Looks like the adults got liquored up in advance for their precious rug-rats birthday parties

An 18-year-old pregnant woman...celebrating her 2-year-old son's birthday.

She's really running up the score in the game of life, isn't she?

I would have to agree. I am never one to pass up pizza, even mediocre pizza is ok with me, but I draw the line at CEC pizza. It could be considered torture to serve that to detainees.

Of all the places I’d expect to see a brawl, Chuckecheese is about last on the list.

The police in Milwaukee wanted to close one as a public nuisance they got called there for fights so often.

You know how Halloween is more a holiday for adults these days and less for children than a few decades ago? Halloween gives adults permission to let it all hang out?

Same with these Chuck E Cheese parties. They are really held for the adults to misbehave and the children are secondary. I’m amazed those crude animal robots are still working. They are old, funk, and gooey cheese encrusted with tomato sauce drippings

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.

I guess the concept of protecting someone never occurred to her.

So the pregnant 18 year old was there with her two year old.

Tells me all I need to know.

LOL... one would think that'd be the case, but not true at all... I've read so many stories about violence at Chuck E's that I make jokes about how they should put brass knuckles on his hands in their logo.

Have fun with the results of this Google search.

We’ve gone way past Sodom and Gomorrah in America. The next generation is being sexualized beyond imagination. It is terrible, but I have seen some evidence that by college or late twenties they realize they’ve been fed a myth.

Women and men in their late thirties and early forties can’t understand their unhappiness - all sex and no marriage.
