HOMESTEAD, Fla. -- A brawl at a South Florida Dairy Queen ended with a manager under attack after allegedly throwing hot grease on an employee.

Homestead police released video showing the attack on Belinda Ahwach Tuesday. It happened after investigators said she threw hot grease at an employee and caused minor burns.

It all started when that worker called her mother to complain about Ahwach.

The mother, Alicia Hodge, showed up and began arguing with Ahwach and hit her, according to police. Ahwach was then seen grabbing a pan of something from the kitchen. That something, investigators said, was hot grease which was then thrown at the employee, who was outside.

The employee and a relative, police allege, attacked Ahwach.

Ahwach wass charged with aggravated battery and aggravated assault. Hodge, her daughter, and a relative were all charged with simple battery.
