The woman who was arrested at an Ohio Applebee’s over a high chair conflict was given ample opportunity to avoid it … based on police body cam footage anyway.
As we reported … Shannel Malcolm got into it with restaurant staffers after she claimed she was denied 2 high chairs for her twin babies. Welcome to 2020, where cops get called over high chairs, and the video shows Shannel’s absolute disbelief once she saw the officers.
At first, she’s not all that interested in explaining her side of the story. Instead, she whipped out her phone, and as we reported … live streamed the incident.

The officer did speak to an employee who explained they were following the law by not allowing Shannel to have high chairs at her booth because it would be dangerous to her kids.
Applebee’s told TMZ … 2 high chairs in a booth created a fire safety hazard, so they offered to seat her at a different table. They claim Shannel refused and got aggressive with a pregnant host — and that’s why they called police.
As for why she got arrested? Well, watch the video to see what happened after the officer kicked her out of the restaurant.
Shannel was jawing with other patrons, and totally defiant when the cop tried to let her go with a ticket. That’s when the handcuffs came out and, as we told you … she got arrested for disorderly conduct and obstruction of justice.
