Cops Called To Break Up Fight Between Denny's Workers Over A Hard-Boiled Egg

An argument between two Denny’s workers “over a hard boiled egg” was broken up yesterday by a South Carolina cop, according to a police report.

In response to a 911 call about a “disturbance between employees,” a sheriff’s deputy arrived at the eatery in Spartanburg around 10:30 PM.  

The cop learned that workers Nancy Michelle Kirkpatrick, 56, and Quanisha Dre’Shawn Fenn, 21, had “got into an argument over a hard boiled egg.” During the squabble, Fenn said, Kirkpatrick called her a “bitch.” “After that,” a cop reported, “Ms. Fenn called her mother.”

Fenn’s mother, Toska Marie Lightner, 47, subsequently arrived at the Denny’s and began arguing with Kirkpatrick. During the squabble, Lightner threw a tape dispenser at Kirkpatrick (who was not struck by the item).

Kirkpatrick declined to press an assault charge against Lightner.

The police report does not further detail why two adults were arguing over a hard-boiled egg.
