I really can't say anything other than friends don't put friends into positions where they are at risk of confrontation that isn't necessary.
Perhaps if someone is so willing to risk you life, they are not your friend.
I would notify staff and maybe see if I can get a license plate number. Other than that, not my job. No one's life is in jeopardy so I wouldn't consider confronting them.
this is one of the dumbest, and therefore easiest to determine course of actions for, "carry/defensive scenario" thats ever been posted here i think.
Dinner at Waffle House...I don't think so!!!

Well, I've been hit by a car.. and slung up onto the hood. Now, I'm hanging on for dear life with one hand on a coffee (and urine) soaked hood... I'm getting my celphone out of my pocket with the weak hand... I now pull myself toward the windshield close enough to use my teeth to hang on to the lip of the hood, get my stong hand down to my DON HUME sob holster, which has my Mahhhhhvelous, customized KAHR 9MM with deadly DRT shells alternating with CORBON Safties all of which are followed by the one in the pipe.. .a HAND LOADED +P+ Teflon coated steel armor piercing bullet which is the only shell I know of that can reliably pierce thru a safety glass windshield... I am screaming in the phone to 911, (which is speed dial 1 on my phone that I dialed with my nose) "OOOO SENNNN CO_SSS I_ O_ HOOOO_ CAAAR ...." and other things which only highly trained 911 dispatchers can understand... Like "I HAAAAA_ 'EM AAAA _UN_OINNNN_, AANNN I GOOOO_AAAA _HOOO!"
Then I take my trusty heater and blow out the windshield... and put the muzzle right between the eyes of the driver!
Yeah! That's the ticket... THAT'S WHAT I'D DO!
You keep your big nose out of it, thatís what you do. Tell the management, be a good witness if they need one but stay out of it. Why would you intervene unless you have a personal stake in that Waffle House? Carrying a gun does not make you a Junior G-Man.

Kick friend under the table, give him "the look" and be a good inconspicuous witness, that is all.

From the perspective of the teens, I probably would have taken off also. The craziest person in this scenario is the guy on the hood. The "teens" are probably thinking: "Whats wrong with this guy, we just stole a few waffles and he's going all psycho on us?" The guy wasn't even in the restaurant at the time. His only "evidence" is what the waitress said, and even if he had any real evidence he was way over the line. Hardly looked like a hero. If he was stopping an armed robbery, now thats another story.
it's a misdeamnor charge ...... a low level misdeamnor charge.
