(Bradenton Herald) A manager at Cody’s Roadhouse in Manatee County told deputies that she was beaten by a customer this week in a fracas that started over cold mashed potatoes.

The incident started on Sept. 14 when a woman, who was eating in the restaurant with a man and two young girls, became upset when her mashed potatoes were cold and requested a 50 percent discount on her meal, according to a Manatee County Sheriff’s Office report.

The manager, the one later assaulted, gave the woman a credit to return at a later time.
