The 23-year-old mother had earlier posed happily for an instagram shot in the Pita Pit ahead of the meal. She captioned the shot: “Happy Birthday @brandiblair22 !!! #nofilter”.

However, later trouble broke out and Jamie Lynn had to pull her friend out of the scrum. She was then seen marching into the restaurant kitchen, grabbing a knife off the counter top and conferring with an employee who appeared to be on the phone, presumably calling the police.

From behind the barrier of the counter the southern gal can then be seen shouting a warning to stop the melee.

Other than that it was a very happy year as the pretty blonde got married to James Watson in a beautiful ceremony in New Orleans. The bride was attended by her six-year-old daughter Maddie, whose father is her former high school sweetheart Casey Aldridge.

Maddie served as a flower girl and sparkled in a little white dress, while Britney’s two boys Jayden James and Sean were ring bearers.

The couple had been engaged for a year before tying the knot; Jamie Lynn excitedly shared news of their engagement by showing off her beautiful diamond ring on Twitter.
