Perkins was charged with aggravated assault, battery, criminal damage to a business property and disorderly conduct. Jones was charged with aggravated assault, battery and disorderly conduct.

According to an affidavit obtained by WTVC, Jones, a server, told Perkins, a cook, that an order was wrong, and that she would have to remake it. Jones disagreed and cursed at Perkins, according to the affidavit. The verbal argument turned physical as the two women threw plates, pots and pans at each other, WTVC reported. One customer suffered burns from hot grease after a pan was thrown, the television station reported.

According to the affidavit, Jones told police Perkins said she had a gun. When Jones followed Perkins into the parking lot, the cook attempted to run her over, WTVC reported.

In a statement to WCRB, an IHOP spokesman said "Our franchisees do not tolerate fighting of any kind between their team members and the outrageous behavior displayed by these two individuals goes completely against what the brand and our operators stand for."
