Husband, Wife Plead Guilty in Crazy Fight over Cold Chicken


In June, Georgia couple Nathaniel and Latasha Smith were sought for attacking a restaurant owner and her 15-year-old daughter. Now they’ve pleaded guilty to the assault to aggravated assault and cruelty to children, according to The Florida Times-Union. The sentencing hearing has yet to be scheduled.

Surveillance footage showed the couple getting into an argument with Qwik Chick owner Jeanette Norris. Video showed Latasha Smith thrashing Norris, striking her several times. The restaurant owner’s 15-year-old daughter can be seen stepping out of a nearby pickup truck, saying something to the suspects. Nathaniel Smith can then be seen striking her in the face with a right cross. The fight was apparently over cold chicken. Norris said the Smiths were regulars at the restaurant.

The couple was arrested in July.
