You might see things from a different prospective if you knew the whole story. The ones that was assaulted was the customers .I was there that night , service was bad and employers could not accept criticism.And the waiter assaulted one of the gentleman then all the waiters started attacking them..police arrived after the incident was over..DID NOT BREAK UP ANY FIGHT!!
