Police: Three Men in Women's Clothes Start Fight in Memphis

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -- They may have looked like women, but they weren't ladies.

Police in Memphis say they're working on a more detailed description of three men dressed as women who came into a McDonald's restaurant with a tire tool and started swinging last night.

Restaurant employee Martez Brisco was working the drive-through window and he says there was an argument there. Brisco says when he ignored them tapping at the window, things got strange.

Police Lieutenant Trevor Tisby says the cross-dressers came inside and decided they wanted to fight with the restaurant crew.

Witnesses say the men hit the manager with a tire tool and -- when he swung back at them -- kicked off stiletto boots and pulled off hoop earrings and jackets for a fight.

When it was over, the manager was taken to the hospital after being hit in the head with a "wet floor" sign and Albert Bolton was bandaged from where he said his attackers used their fingernails to scratch him.

Before they drove off, the three attackers smashed the drive-through window.

    This is horriblle. You should always be on out outlook for things like this at fast food place late at night. Always lock your car when you leave and always carry pepper spray or something to deffend youself. You may neve know who may come in there and what they might do. I hope the police catch them quickly.
