A 71-year-old white woman was arrested when she allegedly attacked a pregnant soldier in a parking row after her son had ‘called her a black lesbian b***h.’
Pensioner Judy Tucker was filmed arguing with Treasure Sharpe, 27, and 34-year-old Stephanie Mitchell, at Cheddar’s Scratch Kitchen in Macon, Georgia, on Saturday.
The video appeared to show her repeatedly lunging at Ms Sharpe after she objected to having her picture taken.
‘Don’t you take a picture of me!’ Tucker was heard shouting.
‘You don’t have the right to take a picture of me!’
Sorry, the video was not found
The two soldiers, who remained calm during the encounter, alleged Tucker’s son Robbie had called them ‘black lesbian b***hes’ prior to the video being recorded.
This version of events was backed up by the woman who recorded the incident, LaKeycia Ward.
Robbie was also seen lunging at one of the military service members.
Ms Sharpe eventually revealed she was pregnant in the clip, adding: ‘You’re pushing a pregnant lady!’

When other diners heard this they intervened and the police were called.
When officers arrived they sided with the two soldiers despite Tucker’s claims the women had got in her way when she was trying to park because she was white.
She had been travelling with her son, daughter and handicapped husband.
Her daughter Angie told officers ‘ten big black guys’ were on her during the confrontation.

Police arrested Tucker on a charge of battery, with a report adding: ‘With all of the lunging and slapping happening, it was never shown through cell phone video that Mrs. Mitchell or Mrs. Sharpe did anything wrong.
‘In fact, Mrs. Mitchell tried, without fail, to stop the attack on Mrs. Sharpe.’
Cheddar’s owner Darden Restaurants added it was appalled with Tucker and her son’s behaviour towards Ms Sharpe and Ms Mitchell.
It said in a statement to Daily News: ‘Such behaviour flies in the face of our values and those individuals are no longer welcome in our restaurant.’
Tucker, who owns an art restoration business, has since been released from Bibb County Jail on a $650 (£452) bond.
