Time for some more karmic comeuppance, thanks to a capable waitress in a pizza restaurant. When a customer gave in to temptation and grabbed the woman’s backside, she delivered swift justice. And the whole incident, from the grope to her epic take-down of the surprised groper, was caught on the restaurant’s security camera.
“Emelia Holden, 21, was taking orders at Vinnie Van Go-Go’s in Savannah, Georgia, when the man walked past and touched her bottom,” The Daily Mail writes.
Holden, surprised by the extra attention, turned on the man. She grabbed him from behind (though not by his behind) and whipped him into a wall.
She continued her retribution until the man was on the ground and she was towering over him.
“He falls and crashes to the floor beside the restaurant counter. As he lays there, Emelia challenges him over his behavior, publicly shaming him in front of two tables of customers,” DM notes.
When the police arrived, they took one look at the CCTV footage and arrested the man.
The groping happened on June 30th, but the man stayed in jail until July 2nd.
“I just did what I felt was best,” Holden said. “I took the guy down and had my co-workers call the police.”
“As soon as the cops saw the CCTV footage, they immediately arrested the man. He sat in jail until Monday so in my opinion, he got what he deserved.”
“All that I want from my experiences is for women to know that it’s okay to stand up for yourself.”
“You have every right to wear what you want and you most certainly have every right to defend yourself.”
The video below captures most of the encounter. While it doesn’t show the arrest, it does show the take-down. The man might very well have been thrilled to go with the police, just to get away from the mess he’d made for himself at the restaurant.
