Christmas Brawl at Waffle House Turns Employee Into Instant Celebrity (VIDEO)
When I was younger, there was nothing better to do on a weekend night than to go to the local Waffle House, or even in the morning following a night of drinking.
On Christmas Day, a viral video emerged out of Texas showing a Waffle House employee defending herself against a violent attack. The three-second clip showed the employee in Austin somehow managing to avoid a chair being thrown at her head by an unruly customer. But the way that she avoided getting hit is what everyone is talking about and why the video has gone viral.
Musician and actor Mekka Don shared the moment on Twitter with the caption, “She needs to be the lead in the next action film. Waffle House job training is off the chain” along with the observation that an underrated part of this video is the other employee quickly ducking when the chair was thrown.

The video soon went viral, garnering approximately 15 million views and 13,000 retweets shortly after it hit the interet. In response to this incident, law enforcement from both Madison Police Department and Morgan County Sheriff’s Office responded to investigate and arrest Alexis Shaianne Smith, 27, and Roderick Ramone Brown, 35, for disorderly conduct following threats made to one of the restaurant’s employees.
A Morgan County Citizen reported, “When officers arrived, reports state, they observed several persons outside the restaurant ‘yelling.’ Brown told officers that he had placed a to-go order and when he was given his order, he stated that the food in the order did not correspond to what he had requested.”
Officers who arrived on scene observed several persons outside ‘yelling’ while Brown explained his side of things. However, despite being offered a refund as compensation for his order, it was clear that tensions only continued to rise resulting in physical violence due to Smith’s belligerent behavior throughout the altercation witnessed by multiple children present at the time of this incident.
