Wrong dip? Don’t tip, just slap, woman says

NATCHEZ — The Natchez Police Department arrested a woman Thursday on charges of simple assault for reportedly slapping a waitress at La Fiesta restaurant following a verbal dispute concerning cheese dip.

The alleged victim who waited on the suspect reported the incident to NPD at 1 p.m. from the restaurant, a NPD report says. The victim reportedly said the suspect verbally fought with her for bringing the wrong cheese dip then yelled at her for making her pay for the dip, before slapping the victim’s face with her palm.

Witnesses apparently confirmed the assault. After being read her Miranda rights, the suspect reportedly admitted she and the victim had a verbal fight and told police, “Yes, I stood up and slapped the (victim).”
