Clarendon County, SC - An early morning dispute between a customer and a Waffle House employee ended in gunfire at around 4:30 a.m. Sunday morning. Crystal Samuels got into an altercation with Yakeisha Ward, 29, a waitress at Waffle House after Samuels and her friends were asked to leave. At some point during the verbal exchange, Samuels threw a waffle at Ward and found out real quick that Ward doesn’t take any shit. She jumped over the counter where the two began fighting. The fight moved into the parking lot where Ward retrieved a gun from her vehicle.

The fight continued and at some point, Ward shot the gun at the ground, a bullet fragment hitting Samuels in the arm. Police rolled into the parking lot, where the two were still fighting, and Ward struck Samuels in the head with the gun. Ward was arrested and charged with assault and battery with intent to kill. She got out of jail after paying $500. The gun she used was legal.

As for Samuels, when reporters asked what she thought about Waffle House, she stated “bad customer service.”

    :ROFL:    that line is some funny shit…

    Ms. Ward looks smug as shit in her mugshot. Wonder what the fight was about originally anyways?

    It’s in the “bad customer service” link. Samuels didn’t get her order and complained because her friends did. Her friends started eating out of the carry-out trays and Ward told them they cannot do that and need to leave the store.

    Not condoning, but Ward did what 99 percent of all food service employees dream about doing.

  • CassieMomma

    To be fair she did throw a waffle at her.  I mean that does condone a pistol whipping :)  Anyway I love waffle house, but when I go it’s usually late and I’m just a bit intoxicated so I imagine at 4:30 on a Sunday morning that was probably the case for the customers…..Not saying what she did was right, she took it a bit far, but it would be really annoying to deal with drunks all the time.  (not that i’ve ever contributed to the annoyance, hee hee)

  • http://www.dreamindemon.com Morbid

    Yeah, as noted in the source link, the police state the biggest problem is that Ward walked out to her car to get her weapon. She had time to cool off during that walk, and did not. I am betting the “intent to kill” portion of the charge will be dropped, though. It doesn’t sound like she was trying to kill the lady.

  • Kalehue

    I’m wondering why a manager didn’t intervene before it came to this.  Or maybe Ward WAS the manager.

    I’m guessing Ward didn’t get a tip.

  • Rotten Apple

    As someone who has waited too many tables in her life, Ward is my freaking hero.  You take so much abuse serving the public.

    The gun part was a little over the top though.  I would have picked up the waffle and shoved it down the bitches throat for throwing it at me though.

  • Coyote

    I’m wondering why Samuels didn’t get arrested for assault as well.  Make that bitch post bond and maybe she’ll think twice about throwing food at someone again. 

  • http://www.dreamindemon.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=12 Athena

    Yeah, unless she’s got priors, she’ll barely get any time at all, I would imagine, considering she was assaulted first (even if it was only a waffle). When I was interning for the public defense attorney, we had a case where a woman had her drunk husband come home and start tearing up furniture. He eventually threatened her, so she retrieved a gun from under her mattress. This caused him to run out of the apartment and down the street. To show him she meant business, she fired a couple of shots at the pavement (not at him, but she wanted him to think so). One of the bullets ricocheted into an adjacent apartment building and into a (thankfully) empty apartment.

    She was offered 90 days in jail or 120 days home detention. She took the home detention.

    On a side note, I’d probably take a gun to work if I worked a night shift at a waffle house, too.

    I knew it!!!!  There have been so many times that I’ve seen your response and said to myself she sounds exactly like a defense attorney would   :)

    Why? How about just not throwing a waffle at the waitress?

    Just wondering…. why is this filed under shaken baby? did the waffle to the face leave ward shaken up, so in retaliation she reacted like a big baby?

  • Wicked Doll

    I really want some waffles now, but I’ll skip the side of STFU.  I’m a good tipper and don’t throw my food at the wait staff, so I should be fine.

    Your right. When I waitressed there were many times I would have liked to pour hot coffee on the laps of customers instead of the coffee mugs. Plus a whole bunch of other things.

  • dammitall

    Ward looks like it was so worth it.

  • Wicked Doll

    dammitall: Ward looks like it was so worth it.

    She does and it probably was.  I assume she lost her job at the Waffle House though.  Maybe not.  Stranger things have happened.

  • malq

    If every one knew everyone had a gun and might give a side of STFU, would the world be a nicer place? Meaning, will people show more respect for each other?  tend to think society may be bullied into it.

  • Stella

    I’ve never eaten at a Waffle House. Is this normal? Is the food any good to eat or just to throw?

    When I waited tables I had nightmares about work.  I hope they go easy on her.

  • Mab

    Maybe the gun was a bit much, but otherwise, “you go girl.”  Power to the people.

  • Redshoes

    I don’t remember where I read it, but I heard that Ward then went to work at the Waffle House the next day.

    so yeah.

    I duno.  Throwing waffles is pretty stupid, but I don’t think that deserves a gun to be brought into the equation.  And only $500?  Isn’t that really, really low for bail?

    Is this even the worse thing that has happened to her while working the night shift at such a classy establishment.  Please.  A waffle?  Get over it.

    Food is pretty good actually, probably more so if you’re drunk, though.  :)  Drunk, or really, really hungry.  The hash browns are great.  :) 

    I agree with Morbid, the “intent to kill” should be dropped.  If she really intended to kill, she wouldn’t have fired the gun at the ground.  Still stupid, but if you have a gun with intent to kill, you don’t aim at the ground.

    sounds about right

    If she were a responsible gun owner at all- regardless of whether the gun was legal or not, whe would have known that you don’t even pull the gun unless you intend to kill.  What she did, albiet by way of the ground, was shoot to STOP.
    You don’t shoot to wound if you are scared enough for your life to pull it out in the first place.

    This makes her an irresponsible gun owner and a dumbass, not necessarily an attempted killer.  She pulled the gun for reasons a responsible gun owner never would, but it doesn’t mean she actually intended to kill the woman.

    I’ll be making Bananas Foster Waffles tomorrow without the side of STFU.

  • tutkill

    Her myspace is funny-it’s like gangsters for Christ and if you mess with me I’ll f*** you up. Well at least you know where you stand with her.
    Danm,  glad they didn’t  throw the syrup bottle too.

    Oh yeah, if Samuel had thrown the syrup it would have been on.  That gun  would have been aimed at her instead of the ground.  I wonder if Ward asked herself WWJD?

  • tutkill

    WWJD at a Waffle House LOL

  • Wicked Doll

    tutkill: WWJD at a Waffle House LOL

    Apparently Gangsta J would have whipped out his gun and started shooting.  I’m sure he is a great defender of delicious waffles.

  • tutkill

    How many waffles did it take J to feed the multitude?

  • Wicked Doll

    tutkill: How many waffles did it take J to feed the multitude?

    Well, he’s Gangsta J so it would have been a lot of waffles served on platters made of bling.
