You could call it a food fight, but this wasn't at a school and the people involved are now facing criminal charges.

It happened inside a Wendy's restaurant in Michigan- and part of the brawl was caught on surveillance tape.
According to reports, the melee resembled a food fight complete with flying food trays and one of the defendants allegedly being struck with a coffee pot.
Today a judge found three people guilty of starting the fight.
The defendants claim they didn't like the way they were treated at the Wendy's drive thru.
