They allegedly threw water on the waitress after she, according to a witness, repeatedly refilled their water glasses. Red Lobster staff intervened and detained the women until cops arrived on the scene.
An ambulance was called to aid the waitress, but she refused treatment. A spokesperson for Red Lobster released the following statement to KSKD-TV:
“There was an extremely unfortunate incident involving some guests that occurred at our restaurant in Fairview Heights today. We take this matter very seriously; the safety of our employees and guests is our highest priority. The local authorities responded immediately and we will continue to fully cooperate with their investigation.”
A similar incident took place at the same Red Lobster in December when four customers attacked a waitress over what they felt was her bad service. That incident was not related to the recent one and it involved a different waitress.
