Don Francis, 74, and his wife Bettye Francis, 69, were eating at Cuisine of China on Geyer Springs Rd. on Sunday night when Bettye Francis asked Jocelyn J. Thornton, 33, to stop cussing while speaking on a cell phone in a nearby booth. According to police, and as seen in the video, Thornton came over to the Francis's table, got in Bettye Francis' face, then shoved Francis into a table and punched her after the older woman tried to push the younger woman away. Thornton has been charged with 2nd degree assault and 2nd degree battery and is currently being held in the Pulaski County Regional Jail.
