MACON, Ga. (AP) - Authorities say two female Macon police officers fought each other in a Waffle House parking lot, leading to charges against 1 of them.

A Macon police report states that Officer Anita M. Harrell and Officer Courtney Coleman fought around 3:45 a.m. Saturday.

Macon police said in a statement that Harrell has been charged with violation of her oath of office and is on administrative leave.

Harrell tells The Telegraph that she plans to appeal in hopes of keeping her job. Harrell had just left her part-time job and was off-duty.

Harrell said the brawl included punching and kicking. Coleman, who was not charged, declined to comment to The Telegraph on Monday.
