An argument involving a large group of women early Friday morning led to at least four gunshots being fired outside an Augusta Waffle House and the arrest of one of the women, police said.

Dinikka Fletcher, 33, was arrested and charged with four counts of pointing a firearm at another and one count of reckless conduct, according to jail records.

Richmond County sheriff’s Deputy A.Q. McKinney said the shots were fired shortly before 5 a.m. when about 15 women coming from a south Augusta bar got into an argument at the Waffle House at 3417 Wrightsboro Road.

Authorities said one of the women pointed a handgun at employees inside the restaurant and then fired approximately six shots outside. McKinney said four .40-caliber shell casings were found just outside the front door of the restaurant.

Three weapons were confiscated. Two handguns were found in separate vehicles stopped not far from the incident. A resident also found a handgun tossed out at Taco Bell on Wrightsboro Road.

I bet you could have calmly

I bet you could have calmly sat in the Waffle House eating your waffles while the bullets flew reminding yourself they only shoot each other as the RCSO and Austin remind us often.

They're everywhere. However,

They're everywhere. However, I hardly doubt any master's guest were in that area at 5 am. If they can afford the master's they.....hmmmmm...nevermind. It'll just get thrown out. It isn't funny but just a little bit as an afterthought. That many women at 5 am already is unpleasant to me. I'm up early, but to go to work. Y'all have a good day now.

When Miss Mary decided it was

When Miss Mary decided it was time to retire from the third shift at this WH, I knew it was time for me to find another spot to drink early-morning coffee. Miss Mary explained, "When the daughter of two of my neighbors cussed me out one morning after I remarked that her behavior was disgracing her parents, I knew it was time to go."

Waffle House has good

Waffle House has good breakfast food. Yes well off people eat at Waffle House. I know one who ate there when he came to GA, and he told us Waffle House is one of his favorites. Of course, he does not put on airs and act like he is better than others.

Yep.....I can picture it now. A whole bunch o' coochie sistahs in dresses three sizes too small, all the worse for wear after a night of drinkin' and carousin', converging on the Waffle House and fussin' at each other about who has the biggest butt.

A good time was had by all.

Happy Easter.

Without a doubt we always

Without a doubt we always showcase our best and brightest for our out of town guests. We're proud to provide them such a broad cultural experience: 72 holes of championship golf at the Augusta National, six holes (and counting) in the ceiling and walls of a local eatery. The richness of the Garden City! We wouldn't live anywhere else!

I am just surprised, no,

I am just surprised, no, amazed, at what must have been almost instantaneous police response. To apprehend the shooter as well as to find two more vehicles with handguns before they evaporated into the city? Astounding.
