Woman calls for action after manager throws drink in her face at Greenfield restaurant
GREENFIELD, Wis. (CBS 58) -- A dispute at a Greenfield restaurant caught on camera - now the manager has been fired after he threw a drink in a customer's face and she threw a chair at him.
The argument happened at Crab Du Jour on 76th and Layton. A month later, the customer tells us she's traumatized, and an injury to her eye hasn't cleared up. She's calling for the business to be shut down.
That is the manager of Crab Du Jour, hurling a drink at a female customer, an action she says has left her with blurred vision.
"I know that it was lemon and something in there that caused chemical burns to my eye. They were flushing my eyes out for hours and hours," said Mariah Luckette.
Mariah Luckette is visibly shaken in the ambulance saying, "My eyes burn. What am I supposed to do? What am I supposed to do? We're gonna flush your eyes out."
As Luckette was transported to the hospital, Greenfield police spoke with the manager Jason Diong.
"You know I throw something at her and then I ask her to leave. So it was a drink or what was it that you threw? Water. Water?"
Diong told police he's been having trouble with customers trying to get free food. Luckette and a friend had ordered king crab legs, then sent them back saying they were cold.
"Like soon as we waited and then we got our food it was not right. Neither one of us took more than one bite," said Luckette.
Surveillance shows Luckette pushed the food away, two minutes later raising her arms as she talks to the manager while he's at the edge of the bar. He turns back and throws the drink in her face telling her to leave. Then you see Luckette shoving condiments and throwing a chair.
"My instinct was to protect myself. How can I get this man from coming towards me? This man just assaulted me. How can I get him to stop?" said Luckette.
Diong was fired and police cited him with disorderly conduct, but Luckette wants to see Greenfield's Crab du Jour shut down. She is also pursuing legal action.
