Man arrested after a brawl breaks out over chicken wings in Publix

An argument over chicken turned violent at a Publix in Temple Terrace, Florida. According to reports by WFLA, the disagreement began after a customer became rude while ordering chicken wings from the deli. Raleigh Harris, 59, yelled at the female deli worker and used the N-word. Another deli employee told Harris to calm down, but that only made him more irate. Harris yelled at the other employee and told him to mind his business. Soon, a brawl breaks out after another customer, Leon Lightbody, began fighting with Harris.The melee continued until several Publix employees stepped in to break it up. Lightbody was eventually arrested and charged with simple battery.
