Woman arrested, charged in Ga. nail salon brawl

Police say they've arrested a woman after a brawl last week that injured a teenage bystander at a suburban Atlanta nail salon.

Authorities said Monday that 35-year-old Monnessia Wright of Stone Mountain has been charged with affray and aggravated battery in connection with the Nov. 21 brawl. Jail officials said they didn't know if she had an attorney.

Investigators told WSB-TV ( http://bit.ly/sN23yb) that they believe Wright instigated the fight in the Regal Nails salon located inside a Walmart store in Snelville. Officers say a store security guard followed Wright outside and copied down her license plate number.

Authorities say a bowl used by customers to soak their nails was thrown during the brawl and hit a 17-year-old customer waiting to have her nails done, knocking out two of her teeth.
