"Literally, (it happened) as I sat down and maybe took two bites out of my plate," Johnson told WHNT. "There's a woman who's beating a man. People are moving around, plates are shattering everywhere.
"It's not something you typically hear, if you can imagine a fencing match.”
Johnson told WHNT that both Chapman and Johnson admitted they had lost their tempers..
"They'd been waiting there for the crab legs for a good 10, 20 minutes,” Johnson told the television station. “When they finally came out, it's very heated. Especially if someone is taking more than their fair share.”
