French toast fracas in Mechanicsville Shoney's
A Mechanicsville woman was attacked at a local breakfast buffet by another customer. It happened at the Shoney's restaurant off Mechanicsville Turnpike, with the fight starting in the buffet line.
Deputies say a pregnant woman who was waiting for French toast made a remark to Donnella Haywood-Gregory, 59, about where the line started. The two then exchanged words. The confrontation turned violent when deputies say Haywood-Gregory started to strangle a friend sitting with the pregnant woman.
The friend was rescued by other patrons, including a 10-year-old boy, and did need medical attention. Haywood-Gregory was arrested for assault and battery. She will be arraigned in court Thursday morning.
