According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, the fight started around 4 AM on Sunday when an off-duty police officer apparently working at the Buckhead, GA IHOP “shouted at a woman sitting in the corner of a booth near the door and then he lunged at her.” A second woman got involved — the officer punched her in the face, they continued to scuffle, and she was eventually arrested.

And, as we see, there was a Boba Fett there, who deserves a Pultizer, but he probably won’t get one. Because they’ll probably forget about this by the time they hand out the awards next year.

We should send this video to the Middle East so everyone can see how great freedom is. [Jezebel]

    Chain restaurant fight videos? When did Wonkette merge with The Awl?

    • elviouslyqueer

      Worse, it's cross-posted from Jezebel. I'd bet Newell has something to do with this.

      • not that Dewey

        And Lauri Apple writes for Jezebel, so there's that.

  • Barb

    May the force be with ya'll.

  • Is the Stuffed French Toast really that good?

  • SorosBot

    I want them alive; no disintegrations.

  • BaldarTFlagass

    Well, they certainly got that table turned and the next customers seated pretty quickly; bet the manager was happy.

    • that was my 2nd favorite part. My favorite part was the 3rd girl checking her phone (facebook) less than a second after her friends took off to be beaten and arrested.

      • Gopherit

        I'm betting she was Tweeting. "OMG! SOME COP IS BEATING BARBI!!"

    • Negropolis

      Isn't that amazing?

      What I love is now how everyone else is so incredibly desensitized that their first reaction to any event is to whip out their cells phones to take pictures and videos and laugh.

      And, when I say "love" I mean absolutely despise what we've become. Thank you, Mark Fuckerberg.

  • DangerHelvetica

    Well, at least the bystanders were all willing to help.

  • Troubledog

    I saw Lando Calrissian at Waffle House beating down some ewoks. They'll stop at nothing.

  • What's that chest-swelling sensation I feel? ….. Ah, yes. PRIDE. God bless America.

    • emmelemm

      America, fuck yeah.

    • GOPCrusher


    • Negropolis

      Being an American and all, I'd guess that sensation is actually an attack of angina, and you should really be getting to the hospital, right about now.

  • edgydrifter

    Rebel scum.

  • BaldarTFlagass

    I like how Remaining Chick checked her phone for messages before following her detained friends.

  • Callyson

    I could be wrong, but I'm pretty sure that when Public Enemy said "Fight the Power," they did not mean that one should go around slapping cops when one is outnumbered, outgunned, and evidently either drunk or stoned.
    On the other hand, if we could get these women to go to a tea party and work their charms, then you go, girls!

  • Texan_Bulldog

    Yawn…needs more taser and bullets.

    (I did like how that one girl in the black dress started pummeling that cop and that it took 2 of the cops to get her down. I don't think you should be messing with drunk GA women at 4 in the morning waiting for their damn pancakes!)

  • freakishlywrong

    Today, we are all scuffling trash fighting in IHOPs while Boba Fett looks on.

  • elviouslyqueer

    Stay classy, Buckhead.

    • mayor_quimby

      I drive past that place daily, and it is always deserted during the day. Clearly the action doesn't happen until after midnight.
      Remind me to never go there, I don't like getting beaten – at least, not like that.

  • ThundercatHo

    Didn't they get the memo that the new Rebel base was Waffle House?

  • CalamityJames

    So, what, the Dark Star is England?

  • DaRooster

    Well this way he can be the first to go through the trash and bring home some breakfast for his kids before he goes off to… WORK?


  • DaRooster

    At the IHOP I would dress as Barf Later.

  • These are not the kind of police we are looking for.

  • DaRooster

    I love how it's like, "business as usual here at 4 in the morning…"
    I especially like the "Whisk Art"… classy joint.

  • Doktor Zoom

    Aren't you a little black for a Stormtrooper?

    • Kidneys4Sale

      Black folks invented the storm trooper. Then whitey came along and fucked it all to hell. I bet you own a lot of Beach Boys records.

    • Negropolis


  • It's too bad they didn't freeze the lot of them in carbonite.

  • waitforsugar

    The force is weak in this one.

  • BaldarTFlagass

    But it is a refreshing sign of racial equality that the southern white cops beat on the white woman and the black woman with equal brutality.

    • And the black stormtrooper and Boba Fett just laugh.

      • snoopyfan2010

        And the white guys in the table next to them also just laugh.

        • HistoriCat

          Racial transcendence!

  • RedneckMuslin

    Of the stormtroopers beware, Luke. Watch and let you get beaten up by the cops, they will. And then, kick your ass in an alley, they will . Yes, hmmm.

  • johnnymeatworth

    I think this is just viral marketing for their new Rooty Tooty Copkiller Fruity breakfast platter.

  • DahBoner


    Well, no wonder! Isn't that where Elton John lives?

  • CapnFatback

    The waitress has long grown tired of Boba's order: the R2D2 Fresh 'n' Fruity, eggs lightly sabered and frozen in carbonite.

  • Badonkadonkette

    Buckhead? This looks like the Mos Eisley Spaceport IHOP.

  • ttommyunger

    As a denizen of Metro Atlanta since 1970, it is with regret that I inform all that Buckhead is our most upscale and trendy locale (Holds head in hands for a moment)…The sad truth is that A. Officers here routinely punch men, women and children alike. B. Officers here can and do punch women twice and still have a conscious and belligerent woman on their hands. And C. If you are in public in Atlanta at 4am, all bets are off, my friend.

    • MozakiBlocks

      OMG – this happened 4 BLOCKS FROM WHERE I LIVE!!!

      Actually it's more like 3 miles but I concur with your observation.

      ATL cops, particularly those on patrol when the bars close, have learned to swing first and ask questions later.

      • Pithaughn

        I've been falling down drunk in over 2 dozen cities in the USA. ( so far ) The worst cops, Chicago, they'll get going on ya just for singing. The best, Laramie WY, I broke a forearm on purpose ( the fight started out as self defense, but I lost my temper ), the cop said " get out of town, don't come back for at least 2 years"
        In New Orleans my buddy was robbed by a blind saxophone player, the cops just laughed.
        Vegas, I'm pretty sure the line between cops and criminals is a broad dark grey area.

    • Nothingisamiss

      So good to know others here in my neighborhood. (Former neighborhood, anyways, I got married and needed to be able to buy.)

      What the rest of you don't see is what's happening at 4:00 am in the Majestic, on Ponce…..amirite?!

      • ttommyunger

        Or the Zesto in L5P.

  • Hatrabbit

    It was her Birthday. IHOP staff and patrons all get together and sing the "Happy Happy Birthday, We're Gonna Bash The Shit Out Of You" song.

    Because it's more fun (and better for your health) than eating that shitty, shitty food.

  • Thurman Munster IV

    C'mon, the gals were just doin' some celebratin' at IHOP after their Model UN get together. It's small world, ain't it?

    Also, Buckhead? Doesn't that describe all Georgians?

  • vulpes82

    I think this thread has proved, once again, that we're all a bunch of NERRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRDS.

  • It used to be that you actually had to go to IHOP to watch hookers fight with cops at 4 AM. We live in an age of wonders.

    • We were promised flying cars and space apartments, but this is almost as good. I guess.

  • The first rule of Fight Club is "We Meet at IHOP".

  • emmelemm

    Same as it ever was files:

    After a long night of post-high school graduation night partying, my friends and I ended up at an IHOP at 4 am. Just us and the hookers getting off shift. That was 20 years ago. Good times.

  • hagajim

    He thought he was in Denny's…just escortin' the blacks out.

  • pinkocommi

    Now, now, people…. There's enough double blueberry pancakes for everyone.

  • __kth__

    If you are hungry at 4am (and why might that be?), a truck stop is a more civilized place to dine than Denny's or IHOP.

  • Lionel[redacted]Esq

    See, this is what happens when you allow Sharia Law to sweep the country.

  • mereoblivion

    A great disturbance in the Force, as if millions of pancakes suddenly cried out in terror and were suddenly et.

  • Did anyone notice the additional oddity that the black Star Wars cosplayers are apparently English? I think they are filming the successor to Ali G.

    • mayor_quimby

      I love my city and my country even more now.
      And who knew Lewis Hamilton liked dressing up when he's not racing in F1 !

  • MozakiBlocks

    Have I told you lately that I love you?

  • Negropolis

    I am so confused, which is not something rare for me when coming to These Wonkettes, but this is kind of extra confusing.

  • Negropolis

    Thank god for Denny's and the Waffle House, amirite?

  • Negropolis

    Their maternal pawpaw is Bubba da Hutt.

  • BZ1

    He sure didn't look off-duty to me…

  • These are not the hos you are looking fo'.

  • Negropolis

    Dear Lord,

    Iff'in I'm ever to be accosted and brutalized in the South at a short-order restaurant by local law enforcement, please let it be an IHOP in the early morn'.

  • BaldarTFlagass

    I thought being jaded was part of the price of admission for participating here.

  • MinAgain

    I have a bad feeling about this.

  • NorthStarSpanx

    Usually the angry males that like to smack women around meet at Denny's, including a Yosemite Sam fella Sarah Palin appointed to be the State's top attorney. But maybe that's just an Alaska thing.

  • Bonzos_Bed_Time

    Boob-grab @ :56. Get it where you can I sayz.
