​Customer Slaps Woman's Bum And She Floors Him

CCTV footage has captured the moment a customer brazenly grabs a waitress' bum - and the moment afterwards, when she got her own back by taking him down:

The incident took place in a restaurant in downtown Savannah, Georgia, just before 11pm on Saturday 30 June, when waitress Emelia Holden was grabbed by a male customer.

The 21-year-old can be seen in the video grabbing the handsy male and pushing him to the ground, absolutely flooring him.

Police were called to the scene, where they were showed the CCTV footage before immediately arresting him. He was later released on Monday 2 July.

Emelia, who clearly has the reflexes of a ninja, said: "I just did what I felt was best. 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."

In the impressive footage, you can see Emelia working, taking a table's order in the patio area of the restaurant before taking the menus back to the counter once they've asked for what they wanted.

But as she makes her way back, the man begins approaching her, and while she sorts through restaurant menus and order pads he reaches out and grabs her.

Obviously thinking he'd be alright just chancing his luck, he tries to walk away without waiting to face the consequences - but Emelia races after him and grabs him by the back of his red t-shirt, before putting him into a headlock.

Eventually, she manages to push the bloke to the ground, and as he lies there, Emelia makes him think about what he's done by giving him a stern talking-to.

She can then be seen speaking to co-workers, telling them to call the police.

Not surprisingly, social media users have praised Emelia's quick-thinking and courageous moves.

One person said that her behaviour was the 'perfect response', while another wrote: "Well done to her.. Disrespectful dickhead."

Amazing efforts from Emelia - though it's a massive pity that she had to deal with it in the first place, let's face it.
