Hibachi employee taken to hospital after food fight

GAMBRILLS, Md. - Frying pans and knives flew in the Fuji steakhouse in Gambrills Wednesday afternoon, but not in the way visitors to the hibachi restaurant are accustomed to seeing.

At least one frying pan and one knife were used as weapons as employees found themselves in a fight over food.

Officers with the Anne Arundel County Police Department responded to the call and found a 30-year-old employee with a cut to his head and a 26-year old that had been struck with a frying pan.

The 30-year-old victim also had lacerations on his leg and arm. He was transported to Baltimore Washington Medical Center for treatment.

Li Chen, the man suspected of the cutting, was arrested and charged with attempted second degree murder; first and second degree assault and reckless endangerment.

Officials say the investigation is ongoing and charges are pending against the other man involved in the altercation.
