The soldiers assaulted by a Georgia woman have been identified as two Army captains in the U.S. Army Reserve’s 143rd Sustainment Command* (Expeditionary).
Judy Tucker, 72, was booked into the Bibb County Jail on battery charges after she was involved in a scuffle with Capt. Stephanie Mitchell, 34, and 27-year-old Treasure Sharpe at a Cheddars restaurant in Macon, GA.
Tucker was later released on a $650 bond.
The video, which has since gone viral, appears to show Tucker and her son, Robbie, in an argument with the two servicewomen inside the restaurant -about five miles from the Army Reserve Center.
Mitchell told deputies she and Sharpe were backing into a parking space when Robbie approached them and told them they should learn how park, according to the report, and then used a gender slur to reference them.
The report states Tucker’s son again approached the captains calling them “black lesbian b—–es.”
During the video recording, Mitchell can be seen trying to calm the situation but Tucker strikes Capt. Sharpe in the face. Sharpe told deputies she was pregnant as well as her assailants.
Deputies said Tucker was “the primary aggressor” and arrested her, according to WGXA.
On Monday, the Cheddar’s restaurant issued the following statement:
“We were appalled by the behavior of the individuals who confronted the two female service members. Such behavior flies in the face of our values, and those individuals are no longer welcome in our restaurant.”
Mercer University also issued a statement after it was reported that Tucker had worked for the university as an art teacher.
“Judy Tucker is not currently employed at Mercer University. She has occasionally taught an art class in the past, but will not be teaching at Mercer in the future.”
*The 143rd Sustainment Command has command and control of more than 10,000 Army Reserve Soldiers located throughout Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Arkansas and Mississippi.
