A Channel 2 Action News viewer sent us this incredible video of a fight in a Chick-fil-A drive-thru. It appears to show one of the women pull a gun on the others.

What’s usually a friendly drive-thru experience at a southeast Atlanta Chick-fil-A turned violent Wednesday when four women in two separate cars fought each other and one pulled a gun, according to police.

Video of the fight, obtained by Channel 2 Action News, shows the women out of their cars throwing blows and pulling hair. It included one of them, Vonshay Redding, pulling a gun and putting it to another women’s forehead. The gun was never fired.

About 9:15 a.m., Atlanta police were called to the restaurant on Bill Kennedy Way, where witnesses told them the women got into a fight and left the scene.

Flabbergasted by what she saw, customer Honey Shaw pulled out her cellphone and filmed it.

“It was really jarring,” Shaw told Channel 2. “It just kind of shocked me. It was close in front of me.”

Shaw said a Chick-fil-A employee passing out receipts backed away from the drive-thru when he saw the fight.

Police found the women six minutes later on Eloise Court with lacerations.

Why the women were fighting is unclear, but Redding, 24, told police she’d been involved in an ongoing dispute with one of the other women. Police did not specify the source of the dispute.

Authorities also found a gun matching the description of the one pulled in Redding’s car. She was arrested on an aggravated assault charge.
