Server injured after being assaulted by woman at Fairview Heights Red Lobster

FAIRVIEW HEIGHTS, Ill. (KMOV) – Paramedics treated a server at a Red Lobster in Fairview Heights on Friday after a customer threw a water glass at her head.

It happened at the Red Lobster in the 110 block of Ludwig Drive around 2 p.m.

A witness said she saw three female customers get mad because the server was filling up their glasses with water too often.

According to the witness, as the server walked away one of them picked up a water glass and threw it, hitting the victim in the back of the head.

The witness said as the server turned around, the customer hit her in the face with one of the dessert books.

The server was treated by a paramedic, but did not go to the hospital and stayed at work.

Customers and restaurant employees made sure the women stayed put until police arrived. Officers then arrested the three suspects.

Police took the suspects into custody and said they were still trying to sort things out before deciding what charged will be filed.

The incident comes just six months after a cell phone video captured four female customers beating up a server at the same restaurant over what they deemed bad service.

In that incident, the victim ended up with cuts on her nose, a swollen eye and was forced to miss a few days of work.

The perp was one of Eric Holder's people and the victim was not, no doubt.

They're all just waiting for Ubama to give them the "go" sign.

Back when I lived in Fort Lauderdale there was a Red Lobster restaurant on North Federal Highway, in a very upscale neighborhood, that was heavily patronized by black folks. Every time I went easily two-thirds of the diners were black. I finally figured out that this was the closest Red Lobster to a rather, uh, pigmentally enhanced neighborhood a couple of miles north.

Funny thing is, there are dozens, if not hundreds, of seafood restaurants in South Florida and I never noticed any large percentage of people of color eating in any of them - only in Red Lobster.

I’ve been in the same situation. But I just thank them for their service and ask that we be left alone for a while. It works and everyone is happy.

I think the whole “filled glasses too often” thing is BS. I think they had other issues with the server and threw the glass out of spite

Thanks, Captain Obvious.

And it wasn’t the first time the waitstaff at that particular restaurant has been attacked by customers.

Is this related to the recent niggerization that I’ve been hearing about?

"Did not know Red Lobster took EBT."

That might really be the case. If so, Red Lobster is inviting this kind of trouble, and the servers should get hazard pay.

When I waited tables many years ago at a similar establishment I quickly noticed two things. One, people in the smoking section always tipped better and were nicer. And two, when waiting on a table of black customers the slower and more relaxed my service was the better the tip I'd get. It seemed strange but I eventually chalked it up to their wanting to take their time eating and that if I was too attentive they felt I was trying to hustle them out the door to make room for some white patrons. But if they had busted a glass against the back of my head ... well let's just say I knew where the kitchen chefs kept the really BIG knives.

Interesting; perhaps connected with the fact that so many black men are incarcerated? (Not that that justifies it!)

Filling up glasses with water too often is racial code.

Hey! Everything else it, why not?

I'd be filing assault with a deadly weapon charges

No you wouldn't. You could ask the DA to do so, but you can't file criminal charges.

A civil suit would net you nothing but a large lawyer bill.

You are absolutely right. These are holder's people and we all know how that will play out, don't we?

I have a similar problem with waitresses constantly refilling my coffee, I cannot handle really hot food or drink and just when I've let it cool enough to take a few sips, she comes along to refill it and "warm it up".

I usually just respond with a polite no thank you, instead of letting her refill it, then throwing it at her.

Realman30 account banned or suspended. I didn’t read the reply he made before it was deleted but from rabidralph’s question - “Really? Is that kind of language necessary?”, it must have been racist or otherwise really really nasty.

“I'd be filing assault with a deadly weapon charges against this sterling example of Obama’s and Holder's people.”

The problem is criminal charges are filed by police or prosecutors. Besides, there isn't any $ in a criminal charge. Civil charges should be pursued with lotsa damages sought. The problem is, the likelihood of collecting is low.

G’luck!

“Black women. Of course. Who else would do this? We know without even knowing. “

what is despicable is that you can guess, with remarkable accuracy, the race of the perps just by reading the presented facts.

Just goes to show ya’...what? I don’t know. Your post has been proved to be justified over and over since then.

This happened in Illinois. At least she wasn’t murdered.

Okay, I’m tempering my remarks a bit.

This happened in SW Illinois. Is Chicago trickling their fairy dust down there?

"One, people in the smoking section always tipped better and were nicer."

Interesting. ALL my best teachers in high school were smokers!

I wonder what the ratio of smokers to non smokers is in the criminal world?

Let's see a few people I picked at random and checked on the net. (some I already knew)

James Holmes non smoker (pot yes)

Ted Bundy (not certain, but seems unlikely, a little bit of pot smoking)

Harris and Klebold. Non smokers. Furthermore Harris wrote (amongst a lot of other crap)

"YOUNG SMOKERS!they think they are so god damn cool with their big bad ciggarettes and their "sooo cool" attitude. I cant wait until they are about 25 and have they have to breathe through their fucking necks and talk with a computer hooked up to their X-vocal cords."

Anders Breivik : Non smoker

Seung Hui Cho: No reference to smoking in any articles I have found.

Martin Bryant: Non smoker

Wade Michael page: No reference to smoking in any articles I have found

Hitler : Avid non smoker, though may have smoked in his youth.

Stalin: pipe Smoker

Karl Marx (pipes and cigars)

Fidel Castro: Cigars

Excuse me, but I don’t think you meant that to be addressed to me.

At least, I hope not, because I said nothing of the sort.
