GUTHRIE, Okla. – A waitress who chased a couple out of the restaurant and jumped on their car after they left without paying says she wasn’t going to let them get away with it.

It was a normal evening at the Legends Food and Sport in Guthrie, and for Paxton Libby it was her first week waiting tables.

She says one of the couples she was serving had a few too many drinks.

"I went over there and they were secretly talking and that's how I knew, gut feeling, something's not right,” Libby said. "I come back around the corner from pushing a tray up from giving them their drinks, and they're leaving.

They left without paying their $48 bill.

"It irritated me so much, I bolted. I was like you're not going to do that and disrespect someone that I care about. It's not okay,” Libby said.

Rushing into the parking lot, Libby says something just came over her.

"They got in their car and she waved her ticket like ha ha ha, and I was like okay now you're just severely pissing me off,” Libby said. "I don't know what made me think about jumping on their car but when I did it was kind of in this moment kind of thing, and when they stopped, they didn't stop they touched the brakes and that's when I jerked back.

She then fell to the pavement and was left in a pool of blood.

"I didn't even know I was bleeding until someone was like is she bleeding and I was like wait a minute and then I touched my head and I was like oh my god I just busted my head,” Libby said.

She says out of respect for the owners of the restaurant she didn’t want to just let them get away, and now she has a message for anyone else thinking of doing the same thing.

"Just stop being ignorant. Grow up. You asked for something, pay for something,” Libby said.

Police believe the suspects left in a gray car. If you have any information, call police.
