A video of a brawl at a San Marcos Popeye’s location has gone viral on social media, and according to reports, the fight ended with the restaurant’s pregnant manager being sent to the hospital.
KSAT reports that the behind-the-counter fight between Popeye’s employees and customers started Tuesday night. Four Texas State University students placed an order for four separate meals at the chicken restaurant’s drive-thru at 1628 Aquarena Springs Drive, the restaurant’s owner, Vedo Kemraj, told the station. When an employee requested that the customers come into the restaurant to place their order, the customers began arguing with the general manager inside, Kemraj told KSAT, and the fight broke out.
Kemraj told KSAT that the manager, who is seven-and-a-half months pregnant, was kicked repeatedly in the stomach, and that the restaurant’s employees jumped into the fray to help the manager.
The manager sustained minor injuries and was taken to a hospital for overnight observation as a precaution, according to KSAT.
KSAT reports that the San Marcos Police Department responded to a call around 9:25 p.m., but that the customers were no longer on the premises. No charges have been filed, and a Texas State University spokesperson told KSAT that the university is looking into the incident and could not confirm whether the women in the video are students.
