The suspect in an alleged attack on another female at a Georgia pizza parlor is now in custody.
After a search that took about a week, Richmond County, Ga., Sheriff’s deputies and U.S. Marshals arrested Brittany Kennedy, 25, who is the alleged offender in the cell phone video that went viral in the incident that occurred at a Little Caesars eatery in the city of Augusta.
Kennedy is charged with aggravated assault, kidnapping, (both felonies) and second-degree criminal damage to property in the Tuesday arrest. The suspect was booked at the Charles B. Webster Detention Center in Augusta.
In the video of the violent encounter that occurred late Monday afternoon, May 17, the suspect appears to punch the victim, Emily Broadwater, 22, repeatedly in the head while holding her by the hair.
The suspect then is seen dragging the other woman out of the restaurant by her hair and kicking her several times. The suspect reportedly then left the scene in a Kia sedan.
The footage reveals that a toddler briefly got involved in the altercation, but a bystander fortunately pulled the child out of harm’s way.
No one apparently intervened in the actual fight itself.
The alleged victim, whose face is noticeably bloody in the video after the attack, suffered a swollen and black eye, a swollen lip, and other bruises and lacerations, plus a knot on her forehead.
Broadwater reportedly declined transport to a local hospital after cops and EMTs arrived. She later went to the hospital on her own and was treated and released. She does plan to prosecute.
Both parties apparently were acquainted with each other, and the encounter might have possibly revolved around a domestic dispute of some kind.
“All I did was help a friend out with his kids while his baby mama was locked up. She has been harassing me for weeks now,” Broadwater allegedly wrote on Facebook, according to a previous report from the Daily Mail.

Deputies say that surveillance video of the assault itself exists which purportedly shows the suspect first pulling a chair out from under the victim after the duo briefly chatted.
The same suspect was allegedly involved in another incident with the same victim.
Authorities have not yet outlined what law enforcement techniques they used to locate the suspect.
