[January 27, 2010]  BROWNSVILLE, Texas (AP) -- A food fight in Brownsville has led to a cafe owner facing an aggravated assault charge over a customer allegedly whacked on the head with plate.

Police said Maria Del Rayo Cordero was accused of tossing a tray of food and tea at the customer who had complained he ordered a chicken dish, but was served beef. KRGV-TV reported the pair argued before both allegedly threw food items at each other.

Police said the owner is accused of grabbing a plate and striking the man. Paramedics treated him at the scene on Saturday.

The owner was freed after posting $7,500 bond. She could not immediately be reached for comment Tuesday.
