Employees say it all started because Moore jumped ahead of Richards in line while she was getting a drink.

Moore said Richards purposely bumped into him at the salad bar. Surveillance video showed Richards cursing at him. She grabbed his shirt and pushed him against a wall.

Police said she also slapped him in the face at one point.

Moore, who has stints in his heart, pushed her away fearing she would hurt him.

Police said she was still fuming when they arrived, stating "Just take me to the f---ing jail then."
