    A couple accused of attacking a woman and her daughter because they were served cold chicken at a Georgia food stand has surrendered.

    Nathaniel and Latasha Smith turned themselves in Wednesday, Baxley police told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Authorities say the Smiths face aggravated assault charges following the June 22 attack caught on surveillance video in Baxley, a southeast Georgia town.

    The couple assaulted Qwik Chick food stand owner Jeanette Norris and her 15-year-old daughter because of the portion size and temperature of their order, police say. Norris refunded their money and told them she had called police. Police say that's when Latasha Smith punched Norris, breaking her nose. They add surveillance video shows Nathaniel Smith punching the teen.

    It wasn't immediately known if either one has a lawyer.
