Last weekend, the debate over social distance in the Arkansas restaurant grew into a full-fledged fight. The skirmish even got on the camera, instantly becoming viral.
According to witnesses, the incident occurred on Saturday at the Saltgrass Steak House in Little Rock. The conflict began with a dispute between a woman in a protective mask and two other clients who, in her opinion, were too close. Seth Cruz, who recorded a quarrel on his cell phone, told KARK 4 News that he was just having lunch with his brother when he heard someone screaming from the bar. “The restaurant staff tried to separate them. – recalls Cruz. “They were just in shock, like all of us.”
On the record you can hear a woman telling other clients that they “should be 6 feet away” from her, after which all three start bickering loudly. At some point, another man comes up to the couple who is angry with the visitor and, trying to intervene, pushes her companion. He reacts with lightning speed: grabs the bottle and hits the stranger on the head, initiating a fight.
Seconds later, dozens of people were involved in what was happening, including steakhouse workers. One of them told the authorities that he had seen a masked woman initiating a dispute, before that, deliberately coughing on other clients. According to police sources, at the moment, none of the participants in the skirmish have brought charges.
