Brutal Attack on Chipotle Employee Over Chicken Extra in South Carolina Caught on Video

A disturbing incident was caught on video earlier this month at a Chipotle restaurant in Lancaster County, South Carolina. The footage shows two individuals viciously attacking a helpless employee over a food dispute, and police are now on the hunt for the suspects responsible.

The Lancaster County Police have identified the two attackers as 36-year-old Jamel Bernard Williams and 34-year-old Kayla Nicole Pyle, both of whom are from Charlotte, North Carolina. The police have issued arrest warrants for the two individuals, as well as a teen boy who was involved in the assault but remains unidentified.

The shocking encounter took place at the Chipotle located at 10092 Charlotte Hwy. (U.S. 521) in Indian Land, just after 9 p.m. ET on December 10. According to reports, the altercation began when Pyle entered the restaurant and placed an order, asking for extra chicken. When the employee taking her order informed her that the extra chicken would come at an additional cost, an argument ensued.

The situation escalated when the employee decided to end her shift and was about to leave the restaurant after calling her mother for advice. At that moment, Williams entered from the other side of the restaurant and charged towards her. The 6’3, 300-pound man pushed the employee to the floor and began brutally beating her while yanking her hair.

The violent assault continued as Pyle joined in, smacking the defenseless employee around as well. The teen boy also got involved, pulling and grabbing her to the point where she could no longer defend herself. Pyle then hit the employee again while continuing to yank her hair, before the attack concluded with the victim being body-slammed onto the dining room floor.

Following the attack, the two adult suspects fled the scene in a gray 2020-2021 Dodge Charger SRT with the unidentified teenager. The relationship between Williams, Pyle, and the juvenile is unknown.

As a result of the assault, the employee suffered a broken left hand but initially refused treatment at the scene. However, she was encouraged by her mother, the store manager, and responding deputies to seek treatment at the hospital.

In response to the horrific incident, Williams has been charged with 1st-degree assault and battery, while Pyle is charged with assault and battery in the second-degree. The police are urging anyone with information about the whereabouts of the suspects to come forward and assist with the investigation.
