WATCH: Arkansas Restaurant Social Distancing Dispute Turns Violent

Article Link

According to bystanders at the scene, things quickly went south after an unnamed woman wearing a face mask confronted fellow customers she felt were standing too close to her. Seth Crews, the individual who captured the footage, responded when he heard screaming erupt from the bar.

Crews arrived just in time to record the woman yelling, “you’re supposed to be six feet away from me,” to another pair of patrons. One of them appeared to deliberately escalate the situation by stepping toward her in response. The woman’s partner then struck the man with a bottle.

The confrontation turned into a brawl involving approximately a dozen customers. “All the restaurant employees were trying to help, they were just in shock like the rest of us,” Crews recalled. Despite that, no charges appear to have been filed thus far.
