What a group of low-life thugs did to a poor waitress after she tried to get them to pay for the meal they skipped out on was absolutely disgusting. The high point of the incident is that it was all caught on video – resulting in the quick capture and arrest of the perpetrators.
Rowshaid Cordell Pellum, 24, and three friends left Mexico Lindo, an Anaheim-based restaurant without paying the enormous tab they racked up. When their waitress noticed them missing, she immediately ran out into the parking lot after them in an attempt to collect what they owed.
The four decided that they would get into the car anyway, and proceeded to hit the waitress with the car. Maria Uriostegui was run over by the car. Very luckily, she only suffered minor injuries.

When the server followed them out of the restaurant to get their license plate number, they laughed her off again before hitting her.
“We made eye contact, and they laughed it off and then they just drove. At that point and I knew they weren’t going to stop so I tried to move out of the way,” Uriostegui told KTLA. “By then it was too late.”
Hours later, officers spotted the black Volkswagon Jetta that Pellum and his friends were believed to be driving outside of a Motel 6. Pellum, 23-year-old Santeea Munay Ralph, 19-year-old Shyteice Lashay Miles, and 18-year-old Markeisha Michelle Williams were all arrested. The three women were charged with one misdemeanor count of defrauding an innkeeper, while Pellum was charged with one felony count of aggravated assault and one felony count of hit-and-run with injury.
