Fight over crab legs turns violent

MANCHESTER, Conn. (AP) — Police say two people have been arrested after they apparently got into a dispute over crab legs in a buffet line at a Connecticut restaurant.

Police were called to the Royal Buffet in Manchester, Connecticut, on Saturday evening.

Authorities say a woman complained there was a fight and her 21-year-old son suffered a broken tooth and cut lip. Police were told she used pepper spray to keep him from being assaulted further.

WVIT-TV reported the restaurant was temporarily closed while health officials assessed the building's air quality following the pepper spray.

Police say Clifford Knight and Lataya Knight were arrested on disorderly conduct and other charges. It's unclear whether they have attorneys who could comment on their behalf.
