    Four arrests made in Chuck E. Cheese melee

    (Feb. 18) -- Police in Memphis, Tenn., arrested four people after a fight broke out during a kids' birthday party at a Chuck E. Cheese restaurant.

    It began with a dispute Saturday between two families at a photo booth, police said. A girl waiting in line complained about how long the family in the booth was taking, police and witnesses said.

    "My sister and little brother were taking pictures," Juaneka Key told WREG-TV. "The girl said, 'Dang, how long y'all gonna be?'" Key, 18, had come to the restaurant to celebrate her 2-year-old daughter's birthday.

    Key's stepfather, Terrence Dickerson, responded by punching the girl in the face, sparking a melee that sent other parents and their children scrambling to get out of the way of the escalating fight, police said.

    "Other people [began] jumping in that didn't have nothing to do with the fight," Key told WREG.

    Witnesses said Key kicked the girl who had originally complained after she hid under a table.

    Police led four people from the restaurant in handcuffs. Key and Dickerson have been charged with with disorderly conduct and inciting a riot. Steven Henderson, Key's boyfriend, and Juanita Hopkins, Key's mother, have been charged with disorderly conduct and possession of marijuana.

    I think you can easily plead temporary insanity if you punch someone in the face at Chuck E. Cheese. The noise alone can make you violent.

    They should have smoked some of the weed and relaxed.

    I saw a woman in Illinois is suing Chuck E Cheese because she got hit in the head by an air hockey puck.

    Last year someone got shot outside a Chuck E Cheese here. The only upset was that it had nothing to do with the restaurant.

    When the brawl really got going did the Jug Band pick up the pace of the music?

    Key is a moron to give an on-camera interview about this incident, let alone pretty much laugh her way through it.

    Good luck keeping child protection services away from your door, Juaneka.

    You know that Epic Beard Man would have none of this had he been there.

    Over/under on the stepfather's age is 33. This is the potential grandfather of the birthday girl for those keeping score.
