Hero Server Bodyslams Ass-Grabbing Customer
You know what? It has been a LONG week, and I think we all need and deserve something cheerful for our Saturday open thread! Right? Right.
Last month, 31-year-old Ryan Cherwinski was patronizing Georgia coffee shop Vinnie Van Go Go's when he passed by 21-year-old server Emelia Holden. Naturally, he figured it would be a great idea to aggressively grab her ass. You know, since he was there and all. Might as well, right? After all, Donald Trump did promise that "they just let you do it."
Alas, as it turns out, it was not a very good idea, as the 115 lb server immediately grabbed him by the collar and slammed him into a chair. Whoops!
Luckily for all of us, the restaurant's security cameras caught the whole thing and have now been released!
Following the incident, Cherwinski was arrested at the coffee shop, hauled out in handcuffs in front of his girlfriend and children -- because yes, this was indeed a thing he decided to do, while out with his girlfriend and children -- and charged with sexual battery.
Here is his mugshot! Enjoy!
And now, your open thread! If you can, we'd sure appreciate a tip on your way out!
