The Family That Brawls Together, Stays Together

Female relatives busted for Waffle House melee

JUNE 12--A 2:45 AM melee yesterday at a Waffle House in Pennsylvania led to the arrest of five female relatives, according to police.

The brawl Sunday at the restaurant in Lancaster pitted members of one family against three other women. As seen in the above Facebook video, in addition to hair pulling and haymakers, some of the suspects threw utensils and other items snatched off tables.

Mannheim Township police collared the quintet of brawlers for disorderly conduct, a misdemeanor.

Cops identified the defendants as Deborah Shivers, 56; Tyneisha Shivers, 37; Latonia Shivers, 31; and Mercedes Shivers, 25, (each of whom lives in nearby Reading). The fifth woman, Tonisha Shivers, 37, resides in Dallas, Texas.
