“The clerk threw stuff at the couple and (Tippins) started fistfighting,” Bowers said.
Muffet broke up the fight, Bowers said, but started punching Mayes in the face. The couple also called him a racial slur during the beating, police said.
At one point, according to the police report, Tippins kneed Mayes several times while he was on the ground. Mayes was left bloodied and with a scratched left eye.
Police identified the couple within hours of posting about them on their Facebook page.
The couple turned themselves in just before 5 p.m. Wednesday. They face battery, criminal trespassing and disorderly conduct charges.
