Bel-Fries on Ludlow Street Trashed in Drunken Tirade Over $1.75 Toppings
An alleged spat over the cost of extra dipping sauce led three women to trash Bel-Fries on Ludlow Street over the holiday weekend.
Employees (and bystanders) caught the early-morning tirade on camera, the footage of which is only now circulating social media.
“They wanted extra sauce for the fries, and when we explained that it costs $1.75, they got upset. And that’s where it all started,” chef Rafael Nuñez, who recorded everything with his cell phone, told Univision.
The violent incident took place at 132 Ludlow Street at about 4:00am on July 4. Three woman are seen wrecking the fast-food joint, tossing appliances and throwing anything within reach at the workers.
Police confirmed the arrest shortly thereafter of the three women caught on camera: Pearl Ozaria (27), Chitara Plasencia (25), and Tatiyanna Johnson (23).
Notoriety seems to have tailed Bel-Fries from the start; upon its pandemic opening in June 2020, the establishment threw a loud party that overwhelmed Hell Square with cars, people, and loud volumes.
