A black couple who had ordered food from Qwik Chick near Baxley, Georgia became angry with their order and viciously attacked the restaurant owner and her 15-year-old daughter.
The video of the attack shows a morbidly obese man and a much smaller woman physically assaulting Jeanette Norris over cold food and not enough fries.
When her daughter tried to intervene, the 400-pound gorilla cold-cocked her.
The video went viral and you can see why:

According to Savannah CBS affiliate WTOC “Baxley Police identify 2 suspects after restaurant assault”:
Police are still struggling for words to describe the attack that took place in Baxley Thursday afternoon after a mother and her daughter were assaulted at their family-owned restaurant.
When you leave veteran lawmen speechless, you’ve reached a new low.
It happened just after 3 p.m. at the Qwik Chick takeout stand next to U.S. Highway 1. Owner Jeanette Norris says it started when a couple ordered two meals. They complained that their chicken was too cold and that they didn’t get enough fries.
The owner checked the food and after more discussion, the female suspect attacked her, slapping and punching her in the face. The owner’s 15-year-old daughter then walked out of the truck, where she was punched in the face by the male suspect. It knocked her off her feet. The couple drove away as two other customers got there. Police call the assault completely unprovoked.
“I’ve been here, what, 41 years – 30 of them as chief. I have never seen anything like this. I’ve never heard of anything like this,” said Chief James Godfrey, Baxley Police Department.
Plenty of WTOC viewers who saw this video contacted Baxley Police to give them information on the suspects. Based on that, police are looking for Nathaniel Eric Smith and Latasha M. Smith. They have active warrants for aggravated battery and cruelty to children. They are considered dangerous and have a tendency towards violence.
Authorities are still looking for the assailants of this unprovoked and vicious crime.
