Two Radcliff women are in custody after an altercation at a Waffle House restaurant in Radcliff left a third woman with a 2-inch gash on her forehead after she was struck with a sugar dispenser.
Ashley Dubose, 24, and Alisa Ruttley, 23, are charged with second-degree assault and second-degree criminal mischief. The assault charge is a Class C felony punishable by 5 to 10 years in prison.
According to the arrest warrant, after 6 a.m. May 19, Ruttley held the third woman down while Dubose struck her with with the sugar dispenser.
The two also are charged with destroying property at the Waffle House, causing $900 in damage.
According to the arrest warrant, the pair threw glass salt and pepper shakers, broke syrup containers, broke a sugar dispenser and damaged the door of a freezer during the alleged incident. The brawl left blood contamination "throughout the restaurant which caused the restaurant to close which resulted in a loss of trade.''
Dubose and Ruttley were arrested Tuesday afternoon on Elmwood Drive in Radcliff.
Radcliff Police spokesman Bryce Shumate said warrants for the two weren't processed until a few days after the incident and police had difficulty locating the women, resulting in the 23-day gap between altercation and arrest.
Rutley and Dubose are lodged in the Hardin County Detention Center on partially secured $5,000 bonds. Their next court appearances are scheduled for July 19 on the felony charge.
