Georgia waitress takes down man who appears to grope her, epic video shows

Talk about instant karma.

A Georgia waitress was applauded for her actions after security footage from her restaurant captured her immediately taking down a male customer who groped her from behind.

Emelia Holden, 21, a server at Vinnie Van Go-Go’s in Savannah, was putting menus away on June 30 after taking a customer's order. In the security footage, a male customer, walking behind her, reaches out and gropes her as he passes by.

Holden immediately turns around and grabs him by his T-shirt collar, before wrapping her arm around his neck and slamming him against the wall. Holden then appears to point her finger at him and reprimand him.

“I took the guy down and had my co-workers call the police,” she said. “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.”

“You have every right to wear what you want and you most certainly have every right to defend yourself,” she said.
