CCSO: Sisters arrested after fight at Thee Southern Belle
CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV) -- Charleston County Sheriff's deputies responded to Thee Southern Belle Sunday morning for reports of a fight.
According to CCSO officials, the call came in around 2:45 a.m. and responding deputies were told that three women went into the restroom, two into the same stall.
Witnesses said when an attendant tried to tell the two women that only one person is allowed in the stall at a time, an argument and fight broke out.
The attendant was reportedly assaulted by three women in all and security showed up to break up the fight.
Tabitha L. Burns, 25, 23-year-old Bianca L. Burns and 27-year-old Martha Castellanos-Avendano were each arrested and charged with Assault by Mob in the third degree.
According to the incident report, sisters Tabitha and Bianca entered the handicap stall together and when the attendant confronted them, the fight broke out. Tabitha says the attendant pushed first but the attendant says she was the victim.
Tabitha told deputies that other "strippers" jumped into the melee and one of them bit her thumb, breaking the skin. She was taken to MUSC for her injuries.
After the fight, the attendant said she checked the stall and found a "cocaine baggy" which she gave to management. Management gave the plastic bag to deputies.
A witness who wasn't involved in the fight told deputies that she saw the Burns sisters start the fight and that their other two friends jumped in and were "literally beating the crap out of her (the attendant)."
After an investigation, deputies surmised the attendee was the victim and the aforementioned arrests were made.
A $10,000 Bond was set for each sister. Bond information on the third suspect, Martha Castellanos-Avendano, is unavailable at this time.
