Waitress at Milwaukee restaurant pulls gun on violent customer

Posted: Updated:

MILWAUKEE (WKOW) -- A restaurant worker in Milwaukee says she and her co-worker feared for their lives when an angry customer became violent.

Surveillance video from a George Webb restaurant in Milwaukee shows the customer punching the restaurant manager in the face.

After that, a waitress pulls a gun from her apron and the man backs off.

Milwaukee Alder Bob Donovan says the attack is a sad commentary on the state of the city.

"It's so sad that we have gotten to the point that a waitress working at a legitimate restaurant trying to eke out a living in my district feels they have to arm themselves for their own protection," Donovan said.

The manager of the restaurant says the waitress had a concealed carry permit and was allowed to have the weapon at work.

The waitress ended up quitting that night. The manager suffered a concussion, but is back at work.

Police are still looking for the suspect.
