Two sisters who tried to sell donuts to workers at a busy Pizza Hut in Lake City were arrested Monday night after police say they sparked a brawl that saw one worker poked in the head with a spatula and a bystander get hit in the face with a pizza.
Eden Odom, 23, and Eternity Odom, 19, both of Jacksonville, went to the Pizza Hut on South Marion Avenue intending to sell donuts to the staff, according to the Lake City Police.
Officials said the two women twice were asked to leave because employees were busy. After the second time, Eden Odom went into the back of the store and complained to an employee about how they were being treated. After an argument, a store employee asked the two sisters to leave, the report said.
Eden then picked up a pizza spatula and poked it onto the forehead of a female store employee, who began to fight Eden.
The report said Eternity at first tried to stop the fight involving her sister, but later joined in.
Several objects were thrown during the fight, including a kitchen knife and a pizza, which hit a witness in the face, the release said.
Both sisters were booked into the Columbia County Jail on charges of aggravated battery and trespassing, according to the report. They were held at the jail as of Tuesday each in lieu of $6,000 bond.
