A North Carolina senior citizen was taken to jail and charged with two counts of assault and battery after she allegedly started a food fight at the Golden Corral in Wilkesboro around 3:45 p.m. on Tuesday.

According to Wilkesboro police, 64-year-old Polly Richards instigated a fight with 69-year-old Linwood Moore after he cut ahead of her in line to pay while she was preoccupied with getting a drink.

Witnesses saw Richards curse at Moore and shove him against the wall after grabbing his shirt. At some point during the altercation, Moore was also slapped in the face.

During the incident, Richards also allegedly threw a plate that cracked 62-year-old Fay Cardwell in the leg and caused swelling on her shin and knee.

While she was being placed under arrest, Richards told police, "Just take me to the [expletive] jail then,” according to WITN.

She was jailed on a $1,500 secured bond.
