Jamie Lynn Spears, younger sister of Britney Spears and former Nickelodeon star, was recently forced to take up the role of “sandwich shop vigilante” when, according to TMZ, she was forced to brandish a serrated bread knife to break up a fight.
Though further details indicate that the event was over quickly and no one was sliced into sandwich-ready portions, do take a moment to appreciate TMZ’s rather indulgent headline, “Jamie Lynn Spears Pulls Huge Knife on Crowd to Break Up a Fight.”
According to the TMZ exclusive, the fight took place at a Pita Pit in Hammond, La. Spears’ friend was reportedly attacked (“clocked with a bottle”) and Jamie responded by “dragging her friend to safety” behind the sandwich counter and then waving around a serrated knife to break up the scuffle.
Spears was successful and when the police showed up, her friend declined to press charges. As one comment remarked of Jamie Lynn, “You are a friend, indeed.”
