Robert Reever wasn't having that, so he jumped back in front of the younger man. Reever then attacked the 65-year-old after they got their food.

The younger man says he didn't fight back because of the suspect's age. Reever was charged with battery.

He's accused of pushing the younger man, causing his head to hit the wall, scratching his face and slapping him.
