The owner of a Michigan Chinese restaurant lost a piece of his ear on Thursday night, after one of his customers allegedly flew into a violent rage over her order.
Jade Anderson, 24, entered China 1 in Mount Clemons around 9:40 p.m. to complain to the owners, a husband and wife, about the food she had ordered. Because of a language barrier their son attempted to translate Anderson’s complaints, The Macomb Daily reported. Soon, the conversation took a violent turn. Anderson allegedly pushed the son and threw her order on the floor. Then, she allegedly attacked the female owner.
“There’s a violent woman over here hitting my mom. She also hit me,” the owner’s son told police in a 911 call reported by WXYZ-TV in Detroit.
“Who is she?” the 911 operator asked the son.
“I don’t know. I’m scared. Can you please come? She’s fighting us right now.”
The male owner tried to step in, and then Anderson allegedly went after him. He pushed her out of the restaurant, and as he did, she allegedly bit his ear, taking a chunk out of it.
Both husband and wife were taken to a hospital to be treated for injuries. It’s unclear what condition they are in.
On Friday, a sign on China 1 declared that the restaurant was closed "for some reasons," WXYZ reported. Anderson was arraigned the same day and charged with assault with attempt to maim which could land her in jail for a decade. She was also charged with one count of assault or assault and battery, a misdemeanor. She was jailed on a $20,000 bond. It’s unclear if she has a lawyer at this time.
Police said Anderson left a small child home alone when she went to the restaurant to confront its owners, accorging to the Macomb Daily. That child has been put in the custody of a responsible adult.
Anderson is due back in court on July 11.
