A pregnant employee was kicked in the stomach when an Indiana Long John Silver's customer became "irate" in the drive-thru when she found out the restaurant would not sell a single hush puppy, a police report says.

The victim, a 20-year-old soon-to-be mother, was working yesterday afternoon at the Evansville, Indiana restaurant when according to the report, “a customer came through the drive-thru and requested one hush puppy."

Of course, the issue was that Long John Silver's doesn't sell one singular hush puppy. When the victim explained, the driver became upset and “yelled a racial slur at the victim while at the drive-thru window.”

A second woman in the car “then began calling the restaurant numerous times demanding to speak to the manager.” The passenger then entered the Long John Silver's and started throwing things around before finally kicking the victim in the stomach before running out of the store.

“The victim is pregnant but is unsure if the suspect knew this when she kicked her,” the report says.

The suspect ran from the restaurant to a nearby parking lot, where she jumped into a Toyota Camry that “was waiting with the driver in it.” The duo sped off before witnesses could record the vehicle's license plate.

Employee's describe the driver as a black woman, aged 30-40, wearing a purple shirt and a brown scarf. The assailant, police said, was “described as a black female, unknown age, wearing scrub pants and a gray hoodie.”

Investigators classified the incident as a misdemeanor battery.

By the way, a pair of hush puppies costs $1.95.
