Nothing like going to a buffet for dinner and seeing a joust break out.

A woman named Chequita Jenkins was at a buffet restaurant in Huntsville, Alabama last Friday night, and she was waiting for them to bring out more of the most important item at any buffet: crab legs.

Another guy named John Chapman was also waiting for the crab legs. And when the staff finally brought some out after a 10-minute wait, John and Chequita got into an argument over who cut in line.

It quickly turned into a sword fight.... where they fenced with tongs from the buffet. And from there, they started breaking plates.

There was an off-duty cop eating at the restaurant at the time, and he broke up the fight. Chequita was charged with assault, for starting the fight, and John was charged with disorderly conduct.
