2 arrested in buffet brawl over crab legs

Alabama police say a dispute over crab legs at a dinner buffet ended in a brawl that left two people facing misdemeanor charges.

Huntsville police officer Gerald Johnson says he was eating at the Meteor Buffet restaurant when a fight broke out.

Johnson tells WHNT-TV that diners were using service tongs like fencing swords and plates were shattering, and a woman was beating a man. Johnson says diners had been waiting in line for crab legs for more than 10 minutes, and they lost their tempers once the food came out......

8. Now you're talking.

It's been awhile since I've seen king crab legs offered at a buffet. They are more expensive than lobster tails around here.

10. I know this sounds trivial but

Some months ago I went to a Chinese buffet in the evening when they served crab legs. Now, the price goes up for the buffet at a certain time when they put the crab legs out.

I enjoy them, and was set to chow down on some, but when I went to the buffet table they were out. No problem, I thought. I'll just wait for them to bring out more, so I served up some hot and sour soup and sat down. When I saw someone replenishing the crab tray, I got up, but before I could get close, a hoard of people crowded around the table and picked it clean.

Discouraged, I sat back down. That's when I realized all the people that beat me to the crabs were sitting at the same table. That's when I noticed the whole table was littered with piles of crab leg shells. They were all oriental and apparently all they were eating was crab legs, and from the piles, they had been there a while.

So I started to be more vigilant on my look out, That's when I noticed a woman sitting at their table with her eyes trained on the crab table. She never glanced anywhere but at the object of her desire. She was a lookout!

They were closer to the buffet than I was, and suddenly I realized I was outnumbered and getting quite hungry.

My fears were realized before long. As soon as the cook approached the buffet table, she gave the word and the whole table (must have been 9 or 10 of them) jumped up and made a dash for the crabs. Each one returned with a pile of crab legs on their plate.

My God!, I thought, how many crab legs have these people eaten already and how more do they intend to eat? They are being extremely greedy, I thought.

So I made up my mind to out-do them. I got up and went to the buffet table and stood there where I would be first for the next batch. But the Orientals must have depleted the kitchen. No more crab legs came as I stood there for the next 20 minutes or so, which seemed like an eternity.

Truly annoyed by now, and by now very hungry, I gave up. I grabbed a plate and began to serve myself other items. To my true amazement, this group of selfish people ran to the buffet the instant another pan of legs came out! All I could think of was how rude and inconsiderate these people were. I ate and left the restaurant, while they gobbled another round of the elusive legs.

I can well envision how a fight could break out over, (I can't believe I'm saying this) crab legs at a buffet.
