HOUSTON (KTRK) -- A bizarre confrontation inside a Chinese restaurant was caught on camera in southwest Houston.
The incident happened at the V Star Chinese Buffet on the Gulf Freeway near Monore.
John and Natalie Ausby eat at the restaurant about six or seven times a month. On Thursday, the couple says their dinner date went horribly wrong thanks to their waitress.
"My wife went to the restroom and asked me to not let her (waitress) take her plate," John said. "As soon as she left, she came to the table and tried to take her plate. I told her to get away from the table, I'd let her know when we were finished and she just went off."
John says he watched the waitress pace back and forth. After the waitress allegedly cursed at him, another customer started recording the incident.
"Before I knew anything, she had grabbed a plate and hit me in the head," John said. "My cap flew off, my drink was turned over, and food went everywhere."
According to John, the manager removed the waitress from their table. Police were called to the restaurant.
The couple says they still had to pay $45 for their meal.
"I was shocked really. My mind wanted to do something, but I was like I can't go to jail!" Natalie said.
The manager on duty told Eyewitness News that the waitress was fired after the incident.
No word on any charges. null
