Checkers Restaurant Fires Workers Seen on Augusta Fight Video: ‘Completely Unacceptable’


Checkers has fired the workers involved in a viral fight video outside the restaurant on Deans Bridge Road in Augusta.

The fight, shown below on Vimeo, was captured by a customer at the drive-thru on Wednesday night. The incident led to a sheriff’s investigation and arrest of 21-year-old Akethia Destiny Bailey for affray.

Here is the statement from Checkers spokesperson Kim Francis: “This incident occurred at our franchisee-owned restaurant on Deans Bridge Road in Augusta. The actions captured on the video are completely unacceptable, and the employees involved no longer work for Checkers. We are cooperating fully with the police in their investigation.”


The violent fight was captured on video by a customer in the drive-thru line, who complained she just wanted “spicy chicken sandwich” and “maybe some cheese sticks.” (Video below)

“But I don’t want cheese sticks with blood and hair,” she says while broadcasting the video live on Facebook. “Definitely don’t want the food now.”

Arrest warrants were served Thursday morning on Akethia Destiny Bailey for affray in the Checkers parking lot. The warrant says she fought with other persons including “Jhasyia Kitchens and Maniya Perry” in a public place “causing a disturbance of the public tranquility.” A mugshot was not immediately available.
