Mercer University in Macon issued a statement Tuesday about the woman at the center of a confrontation with two service women at a Cheddar's restaurant.

Judy Tucker was arrested after she admitted to smacking one of the woman who was pregnant during the argument that was caught on cell phone video and has since gone viral.

According to a police report, the fight apparently started over a parking space.

“Judy Tucker is not currently employed at Mercer University,” the school said in a statement. “She has occasionally taught an art class in the past, but will not be teaching at Mercer in the future.”

Tucker has also been banned from Cheddar's

The incident “flies in the face of our values and those individuals are no longer welcome in our restaurant,” Cheddar's said in a statement.

The video has since been shared and viewed million of times around the country through social media.

One of the videos shows Tucker lunging at a servicewomen, who is recording the argument with a phone.

Tucker tells her, "Don't you take a picture of me! You do not have the right to take a picture of me!"

Several other people crowd into the argument, shoving ensues, and one of the women says, "Look at me. I'm pregnant, You're pushing a pregnant lady."

A younger man, apparently with Tucker, responds, "Oh, really? By her?"

Tucker adds, "Well, my husband is handicapped."

A second video, shot outside Cheddar's, shows an officer leading Tucker in handcuffs to a Bibb County cruiser while the younger man with Tucker argues with a second deputy.
