A 911 call from an employee at Nashville's Stoney River Steakhouse reveals Miranda Lambert was "flipping plates" and trying to "hit people"
In 911 calls obtained by TMZ and The Tennessean, a female employee at Nashville’s Stoney River Steakhouse restaurant can be heard telling a Metro dispatcher: “I have two guests about to get into a fistfight… Miranda Lambert.”
“She just ran out the door, and got into it with another couple right here… I’m sorry my manager just said call 911,” the employee explained.
In a separate 911 call, a dispatcher can be heard asking what sparked the altercation.
“Something happened in the restaurant between these two gentlemen, and another gentleman walked up to her table and started cussing him out,” the employee told the dispatcher.
“This is the third time they’ve gotten into it, and now Miranda is trying to hit people, and she’s flipping plates on them.”
In another call, a frantic employee pleaded with the 911 dispatcher for help.
“There’s an altercation between two guests, and it’s about to get physical,” the employee explained. “Our managers are trying to hold them back but we can’t.”
The woman described the two people as a male in his 30s and a male in his 60s.
According to a TMZ report released on Wednesday, Lambert was eating with her mother and a family friend when the fight broke out.
TMZ reported that the argument occurred between Lambert’s friend and an “older man,” and that the argument began after someone made “a wisecrack about millennials and their phones” in the men’s bathroom at the restaurant.
Sources told the outlet that Lambert then “had to be held back” after the man went up to her table and “started screaming.”
According to TMZ, Lambert eventually walked over to the man’s table and dumped a salad on his wife.
Nashville police confirmed to PEOPLE that they responded to a call regarding two men fighting at Stoney River Steakhouse on Sunday evening around 8:00 p.m., though they cannot confirm Lambert was involved.
When cops arrived, the men declined to press charges and no report was filed.
The steakhouse did not immediately respond to request for comment, while a rep for Lambert had no comment on the situation when reached by PEOPLE.
