I’m not sure I’ve ever eaten a hush puppy, so I don’t feel qualified to speak on whether they are something worth kicking a pregnant lady over should the option ever present itself. But I will say that if one hush puppy sounds good to you then two should probably be better especially with there being more than one of you in the car, so kicking the pregnant lady in this case seems out of left field and more than a tad unnecessary. Or maybe you don’t have $1.95 between the both of you which is apparently what a pair of hush puppies costs at this particular Long John Silver’s, so perhaps that’s what one might consider a mitigating circumstance. Not me, but someone.
The 20-year-old victim was working yesterday afternoon at the Evansville eatery when “a customer came through the drive thru and requested one hush puppy,” cops say.
When the worker told the fritter fan that the seafood chain only sold the deep-fried delicacy in orders of two, the driver became incensed and “yelled a racial slur at the victim while at the drive thru window.”
A second woman in the car “then began calling the restaurant numerous times demanding to speak to the manager.” The passenger then entered the Long John Silver’s and “began throwing things around” before she “kicked the victim in the stomach and ran from the store.”
“The victim is pregnant but is unsure if the suspect knew this when she kicked her,” the report states.
