A March 22 ruckus between employees outside the Chick-fil-A restaurant on Fayetteville’s north side could spell trouble for some of those involved.

Fayetteville officers on March 22 at approximately 10:23 p.m. were dispatched to a local residence to take the report of an alleged domestic disturbance.

Fayetteville Police Department spokesperson Ann Marie Burdett said police met with the complainant/mother of the female Chick-fil-A employee, who said her daughter texted her at approximately 9:29 p.m., alleging a group of female co-workers was waiting to fight her after work.

The mother told police she drove to the Chick-fil-A on Ga. Highway 85 North to wait for her daughter to get off work, Burdett added.

“The complainant said her daughter exited the restaurant. She was reportedly approached by several females yelling and attempting to jump the complainant’s daughter and were Chick-fil-A employees. The complaint said she told her daughter to go home,” Burdett said.

Burdett said the officer informed the mother how to obtain a criminal warrant for simple assault and file for a protective order. The officer also explained that the business owner would have to issue a criminal trespass warning against the individuals since they were employees.

Another Fayetteville case had an officer on March 21 responding to Fayette County High School in reference to alleged sexual incidents involving juveniles, Burdett said.

The officer met with the complainant, who said the alleged incidents involved a female and male juveniles having inappropriate sexual contact between Feb. 1 and Feb. 28, said Burdett, adding that based on the report, which has not been confirmed, the incidents may have involved two separate juvenile males.

Burdett said the officer met with the Fayette County Assistant District Attorney. The ADA suggested the best way to resolve this case would be for the Board of Education to follow through with special educational counseling for the juveniles involved in the incident instead of pursuing criminal charges.
