The Chuck E. Cheese Chronicles: Grandmother Assaulted In Michigan

Oh Chuck E. Cheese violent shenanigans — how we've missed you!

Just kidding. What is it about this place that just makes people want to fight??

A woman is in the hospital after she was assaulted at a Chuck E. Cheese's restaurant in Dearborn!

So what happened? The grandmother asked a nearby table not to use bad language in front of kids:

"She said, 'please don't use that language with children.' They told her to 'shut the f— up and turn around.'"

That's when a man leapt at the table and started swinging:

"He punched her in the face and dragged her by her hair."

Like we said, she ended up in the hospital. The restaurant refunded their money. There was no mention of justice against the attackers.

What a stupidly violent and ridiculous world we live in — those restaurants are supposed to be happy places!

Another Birthday Brawl At Chuck E. Cheese!

| Filed under: Sad SadChuck E. Cheese

Just when you thought things had turned around for Mr. Charles E. Cheese!

A child's birthday party turned ugly in Michigan when his grandmother was beaten by another parent. The 60-year-old woman was jumped after she approached another party and asked that she watch her children, who were disrupting their own party. Things turned violent quickly as this other adult attacked the elderly woman, choking her and beating her, all in front of the kids.

The grandmother's son-in-law was the only one arrested in the ordeal, as he seemed to be the only one who was unruly by the time the police arrived.

Watch the video to see for yourself the damage that was done to this woman and her grandson. (above)

No self-respecting family should ever take their kids to Chuck E Cheese ever. EVER! They're just a ball pit of violence, despair and broken dreams!

Wonder if she'll still get that reality show, now that she's no longer 16…

Although we continue to be creeped out by Courtney Stodden and her 51-year-old actor hubby Doug Hutchinson, we'd like to wish her a happy birthday!

Here's what Courtney had to say about turning the big 1-7:

Chuck E. Cheese Sued For Promoting Gambling Addiction

| Filed under: Wacky, Tacky & TrueLegal MattersChuck E. Cheese

So that's why we lost so much money last time we went to Vegas! Ha!

Debbie Keller, a San Diego mother of a 3 and 5-year-old, is suing Chuch E. Cheese for promoting gambling addictions in children!

She believes that many of the games intended for children at the popular arcade-style restaurant are actually illegal gambling devices and is seeking $5 million for…her children's future gambling problems?

Despite the millions in "damages" she is seeking, her lawyer says the lawsuit's real purpose is to prevent the company from keeping the machines in its game rooms.

Chuck E. Cheese attorneys are moving for a dismissal of the lawsuit on the grounds that the games are legal and the California Legislature never intended to make operating a children’s arcade game a criminal act.

They also raise a good point that even if the games WERE illegal, then Mrs. Keller would be an admitted participant in illegal gambling and therefore barred from seeking damages.

Gambling addiction expert Bob Cabiness, who owns a treatment center for compulsive gambling in Virginia, doesn't the lawsuit stands much of a chance, saying:

"I don't think [Keller] has a case. If the mother feels there's gambling at Chuck E. Cheese, she shouldn't take the kids there."

Can't really argue with that, although we can see how SOME games at the kiddie playplace may resemble those found in a casino. However, we find it hard to see how she deserves millions of dollars in damages.

If anyone has developed a gambling addiction, it may be Debbie Keller who is rolling her legal dice for a $5 million jackpot!

ANOTHER Man Shot And Killed In Chuck E. Cheese Parking Lot

| Filed under: Tacky & TrueR.I.P.Sad SadChuck E. Cheese

another man killed in a chuck e cheese parking lot

Unbelievable.

Last month, we were appalled to report that a man was shot and killed in the parking lot of a Chuck E. Cheese restaurant in New Orleans.

Now, ANOTHER MAN has been shot and killed during a dispute over a parking spot in a Chuck E. Cheese in South El Lay.

A search is currently on for the man who killed 29-year-old Daniel Villanueva for an absolutely absurd reason. A woman is also being sought who has been connected to the shooting.

So disturbing. We can't imagine what parents would bring their children to Chuck E. Cheese at this point.

Our thoughts go out to Daniel Villanueva's family and friends.

…We miss the days of Discovery Zone…sigh…
