A fight in front of customers at the Rally’s in Penn Hills led to two female employees being fired.

Two female employees were fired from Rally’s in Penn Hills and charged with assault after police said they got into a fight in front of customers.

Police Chief Howard Burton said a 17-year-old and a 25-year-old both were cited for disorderly conduct in connection with an incident Friday afternoon at the fast food restaurant on Frankstown Road. The 17-year-old also faces a charge of criminal mischief.

Police said witnesses told them the fight began after the teen flirted with the older woman’s boyfriend.

Burton said no one was injured, and the employees no longer work at the business.

A video of the fight was posted to the Facebook page Penn Hills Informer.

A message left at Rally’s was not immediately returned.

Correction: This story has been updated to correct the charges filed against the two involved in the fight.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
