(News Max) – A brawl that erupted at a suburban Tampa Publix supermarket when a customer used a racial slur while ordering chicken wings was caught on tape and has been seen by thousands.

Leon Lightbody, 25, was arrested  for simple battery after fighting with other customers at the Temple Terrace Publix deli, including the man who ordered the wings, according to WFLA-TV.

The incident happened Sept. 16 when a man identified as Raleigh Harris, 59, placed an order for chicken wings about 8:30 p.m. Witness Jessica Jordan told WFLA-TV that Harris was rude and used a racial slur toward one of the employees.

“Well I was in shock,” said Jordan, adding that employees told Harris to back off because of his actions. “I was like, ‘Ugh, great, rude people.’ I just felt like he was kind of, um, loud and obnoxious.”
