Woman allegedly pulls out pocketknife during food fight at In-N-Out in Glendale

A 25-year-old Los Angeles woman was arrested early Monday when she allegedly threatened three men with a knife after a small food fight inside In-N-Out restaurant, police said.

Nancy Perez was arrested about 12:44 a.m. after she allegedly pulled a small knife from her pocket and swung it at three men who she claimed were making fun of her and her girlfriend, according to Glendale police.

The men — two of them 30 years old, the other 23 — were seated at a booth near Perez and her girlfriend inside the In-N-Out in the 300 block of Harvey Drive, when Perez reportedly thought they were staring and giggling at her and her girlfriend so she walked over to confront them.

As they were arguing, Perez allegedly spilled a ketchup container on the table, prompting one of the men to throw ketchup at her.

After they threw drinks at each other, Perez allegedly brandished the knife with a 2 1/2-inch blade and swung at the men, according to police.

One of the men grabbed Perez's hand to take the knife away, resulting in a struggle, police said.

The fight stopped a short time later and they all left the restaurant.

Two of the men suffered cuts on their fingers, police said.
