COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - A cigarette causes more than cancer at a Columbus Waffle House.

According to Columbus police reports, Shemkia Wingfield lit a cigarette inside the Macon Road restaurant late Saturday night.  That's when another woman asked her to put it out.

The altercation became physical when Wingfield threw her cigarette at the woman, then two other women, Beatrice Willis and Candace Bryant, jumped on the victim.

The brawl continued out into the parking lot where police found the victim with minor injuries.

Wingfield, Willis and Bryant are charged with simple battery and are being held in the Muscogee County Jail.
