FAIRVIEW HEIGHTS, Ill. (KMOV) – Three Belleville women are facing felony charges after they were accused of assaulting a server at a Red Lobster restaurant in Fairview Heights last Friday.

The assault happened around 2 p.m. inside the restaurant in the 110 block of Ludwig Drive.

A witness said she saw three female customers get mad because the server was filling up their glasses with water too often.  According to the witness, as the server walked away one of them picked up a water glass and threw it, hitting the victim in the back of the head.  The witness said as the server turned around, the customer hit her in the face with one of the dessert books.

The server was treated by a paramedic, but did not go to the hospital and stayed at work.

Customers and restaurant employees made sure the women stayed put until police arrived. Officers then arrested the three suspects.  They have been identified as Sharrell A. Evans, 21, Britley L. Green, 22, and Geneen L. Green, 44, from Belleville.  All three have been charged with mob action and aggravated battery.  Both charges are felonies.  They are being held on $50,000 bond each.

The incident comes just six months after a cell phone video captured four female customers beating up a server at the same restaurant over what they deemed bad service.

In that incident, the victim ended up with cuts on her nose, a swollen eye and was forced to miss a few days of work.
