Marietta Police say that on July 12, Tiffany Denise Allen confronted customer Jennifer Schwenker, who had brought her autistic twin boys and service dog to the restaurant at 1291 Bells Ferry Rd.
Allen, who was off-duty but inside the restaurant, became irate that the dog was in the eatery and confronted Schwenker, according to police. Schwenker explained the dog was a service animal, but Allen continued to harass Schwenker, going so far as to follow her into the restroom, police said.
During this time, Schwenker lost track of one of her children and ran outside to look for him, throwing her cup down as she ran. Believing that Schwenker had thrown the cup at her, Allen charged after her and hit her in the face, according to a warrant for Allen’s arrest.
Surveillance video inside the restaurant shows employees holding Allen back, but did not capture the alleged slap, the warrant says.
Allen's court date is set for October 5.
