    BATON ROUGE - Baton Rouge Police have arrested three individuals in connection with an attack on a teenage restaurant hostess who refused to seat them due to social distancing requirements.

    Police say the attack against the teenager happened on Sunday, August 9 at the Chili's Bar & Grill on Constitution Avenue.

    Police say the three women were part of a large group requesting to dine at the same table.

    The young hostess, 17-year-old Kelsy Wallace, explained that due to social distancing requirements, the business only allowed six people to a table.

    Wallace said she was not only embarrassed by the attack, but suffered injury to one of her eyes, and has a large bald spot in the back of her head where one of the attackers ripped her hair out.

    Detectives say Tammy Dabney was arrested on one charge of Aggravated second-degree battery, Rodneka Dabney was arrested on the charges of disturbing the peace and simple battery, and Erica Dabney was arrested on the charges of disturbing the peace and simple battery.
