A fight at a Publix grocery store in Temple Terrace, Florida, has left customers shocked and one man facing charges.

Jessica Jordan, 26, filmed the brawl at the grocery store on Sept. 16. She told WTVT that the victim, 59-year-old Raleigh Harris, was being "rude" to a female deli worker as he was ordering a chicken dinner around 8:30 p.m. A verbal exchange escalated, and Harris became angry at another employee who was trying to calm him down.

“He got really outraged and told him to mind his [expletive] business and kinda threw the N-word in there a few times," Jordan told WFLA. "The guy that was ordering chicken was, like, running around the deli being chased by these other customers."

According to Jordan, another customer, 25-year-old Leon Lightbody, didn't like how Harris was speaking to the employees, and that's when fists started flying. In the video, other customers are seen joining in, punching Harris and wrestling him to the ground. Lightbody was later charged with simple battery.

Publix spokesman Brian West said "this is not the norm" at their stores, and he is glad no one was seriously injured.
