MANCHESTER, Conn. (AP) — Police say two people were arrested after a dispute over crab legs at a Connecticut restaurant turned violent.

WVIT-TV reports police were called to Royal Buffet in Manchester, Connecticut, on Saturday evening after a juvenile was punched in the face.

Clifford Knight and Latoya Knight were arrested. Clifford Knight is charged with third-degree assault and disorderly conduct. Latoya Knight is charged with disorderly conduct and threatening.

Police say the juvenile’s mother deployed pepper spray in self-defense. She is not facing charges. The restaurant was temporarily closed while health officials assessed the building’s air quality following the pepper spray.
