One man was treated for injuries, and another arrested after a midnight altercation at Waffle House in Greenville Thursday.

According to Greenville Police Chief Justin Lovvorn, the unidentified male suspect was charged with discharging a weapon in the city limits and reckless endangerment after firing shots in the air during an argument between a Waffle House employee and a customer.

“No one was shot at,” Lovvorn said. “He’s being charged with discharging in the city limits and reckless endangerment. There were two or three involved in the actual fight. One of the persons had some injuries that he was treated for, but he is out and about today.”

Lovvorn said investigators are actively working on the case. Because the investigation is ongoing, the names of those involved are being withheld at this time.
