A man was arrested on charges of assault after allegedly choking his girlfriend at a restaurant, according to a video uploaded to the Internet.
The incident unfolded at a Waffle House restaurant in the early hours of the morning.
An army veteran, who noticed the suspect choking his girlfriend, decided to intervene.
The army veteran grabbed the suspect by the shirt and threatened to eat him for breakfast if he ever puts his hand on his girlfriend.
The entire confrontation was recorded on video and was uploaded to the Internet, where it went viral. Other diners at the restaurant quickly left as they were afraid that the confrontation will turn violent.
The army veteran said that he decided to intervene because he witnessed his mother being beaten by her violent boyfriend. After promising to keep his hands of his girlfriend, the army veteran let him go, and he quickly fled from the scene.
However, police caught up with the suspect later that day, and arrested him on charges of assault.
The wife of the army veteran said that they have a zero tolerance policy towards violence especially when it involved women.
