AM Smackdown at IHOP After Man Interrupted Prayer

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - While some people were enjoying their pancakes, crepes or chicken fingers at the International House of Pancakes, two men had a WWE style brawl over a subject that doesn't usually end in fights:  prayer.

It all began when a couple was praying before eating.  A man was cursing, which interrupted the prayer and the man who was praying asked him to stop.  The cursing man didn't stop and actually called the woman with the praying man a vulgar name. 

The man stopped his prayer but didn't turn the other cheek.  Instead, he punched the cursing man in the eye. 

At this point, the brawl began with the men bumping into items and tables, breaking everything from cups to syrup containers. 

Jonesboro Police were dispatched to the restaurant at about 4:45 a.m. Sunday but both parties had left the scene before police arrived.
