According to TMZ, the plate dumping stemmed from when Lambert's friend was in the restroom and another man, the husband of the woman whose plate was dumped, made a joke about millennials and their cellphones.
More details come from 911 calls obtained by The Tennessean.
“Something happened in the restaurant between these two gentlemen, and another gentleman walked up to her table and started cussing him out,” the woman told the dispatcher. “This is the third time they’ve gotten into it, and now Miranda is trying to hit people and she's flipping plates over on them.
“There’s an altercation between two guests, and it’s about to get physical. Our managers are trying to hold them back but we can’t.”
Lambert's publicist declined to comment, and nearly a week later, the musician announced she was married.
