A Charlotte man who goes by the name "Tedbundy Mello" posted videos to Facebook showing a fight involving several people inside the restaurant with dishes and food being thrown.

"I was just trying to eat," Tedbundy Mello wrote in the post with the videos, which had been shared more than 4,500 times by Friday afternoon.

Police didn't say whether anyone else would be charged in the incident.
