Amy Bishop Hit a Mom in a Pancake House: Bishop Throws Punches at IHOP

Amy Bishop hit a woman in a Peabody, Massachusetts pancake house. The stories about this out-of-control woman just keep coming.

In 2002, Bishop was in an International House of Pancakes (IHOP). She asked for a booster seat for one of her children, but the restaurant was out of boosters.

Bishop, according to a police report, strode over to the other woman, [Michelle Gjika] demanded the seat and launched into a profanity-laced rant.

When the woman would not give the seat up, Bishop punched her in the head, all the while yelling "I am Dr. Amy Bishop."
Prosecutors recommended anger management, and received probation. It is not known if she actually did attend anger management counseling.

Bishop is charged with one count of capital murder, and two counts of attempted murder, for the killings of three University of Alabama at Huntsville faculty members, and the wounding of three.
