PEMBROKE, Ga. — A couple accused of attacking a woman and her daughter because they were served cold chicken at a Georgia food stand has surrendered.

Baxley Police told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution that Nathaniel and Latasha Smith turned themselves in Wednesday. Authorities say the Smiths face aggravated assault charges following the June 22 attack caught on surveillance video in Baxley, a southeast Georgia town.

Police say the couple assaulted Qwik Chick food stand owner Jeanette Norris and her 15-year-old daughter because of the portion size and temperature of their order. Norris refunded their money and told them she had called police. Police say that’s when Latasha Smith punched Norris, breaking her nose. They add surveillance video shows Nathaniel Smith punching the teen.

It wasn’t immediately known if either one has a lawyer.
