According to witnesses and cops, the nail salon workers used broomsticks, fists, and dustpans on the customers before a civilian intervened. She also expressed her anger that the salon staffers were "hitting [the women] like animals".

In a video posted to Facebook, Mercy Maduka explained that she was paying a visit to the NY salon when a huge fight broke out over a so-called botched eyebrow.

The n0w-viral video shows a nail salon in chaos - a loose flip-flop on the floor, manicure stations pushed roughly to the side. Another woman can be seen being held back by a male employee. Police say Huiyue Zheng, 32, was arrested on charges of criminal assault while possession a weapon, assault causing injury, menacing and harassment. She was also released. Many of them rallied outside the shop Monday to protest the violence. "They are violent. I saw these workers beat up a woman, well more like jumped her".

A spokesperson for the Brooklyn district attorney's office says they are in the process of examining all of the evidence, including videos that were not available at the time of the arraignments. The young lady paid for her feet/nails but refused to pay for her eyebrows because she was unsatisfied.

According to the nail association, an employee told them Thomas refused to pay for any of the other services she received, telling CBS New York that the altercation could have easily been avoided.
