More than pork fried rice was on the menu at one Chinese restaurant when one worker attacked another with a cleaver, according to the Associated Press.

Restaurant worker hospitalized after kitchen fight, The Associated Press

PALO ALTO, Calif. — An employee of a Palo Alto Chinese restaurant is hospitalized and a second employee on the run from the police after a kitchen scuffle turned violent.

Palo Alto police say during the scuffle Wednesday evening one man suffered wounds to the face and torso after being attacked by a second man with a cleaver in the kitchen of the Jade Palace restaurant. Read story: www.azstarnet.com/sn/hourlyupdate/294775.php

Like in the story about the 2-year-old shooting and killing her 3-year-old brother, a rule or two of common sense may have avoided this incident altogether:

1. Don’t get in a fight with anyone who is wielding a cleaver.

2. Don’t get in a fight with anyone in a kitchen. From the blender to the shish kabob skewer, there are way too many weapons in there.


What was the worst fight you had with a coworker?

Did either of you end up in the hospital?

This archive contains all the stories that appeared on the Tucson Citizen's website from mid-2006 to June 1, 2009.

In 2010, a power surge fried a server that contained all of videos linked to dozens of stories in this archive. Also, a server that contained all of the databases for dozens of stories was accidentally erased, so all of those links are broken as well. However, all of the text and photos that accompanied some stories have been preserved.
