Jodie Marie Burchard-Risch, 43, was charged with third-degree assault for an incident that occurred on Oct. 30 at the Applebee’s in Coon Rapids, Minnesota in the United States, reported KARE-11.

According to the criminal complaint, Burchard-Risch was dining with her husband when she lost her temper after hearing Asma Jama, the victim, speaking in Swahili in the neighboring booth.

According to authorities, managers then stepped in and tried to get Burchard-Risch to leave the establishment. She reportedly refused, continued to yell at the victim and threw her drink at the woman. Then she “smashed” her beer mug across the woman’s face in a “round house punch” motion and fled the scene, according to the complaint.

One of the Applebee’s managers followed Burchard-Risch out of the restaurant until she was arrested by responding officers.
