An employee at a clothing store in Athens, Ga., allegedly grabbed a 13-year-old girl by her wrist and forced her to clean-up her own vomit after she got sick in the store.
Online Athens reported that the teenage girl told police she vomited in the store and then stepped out of the store and threw-up again in a nearby trash can.
An employee at Body Central then reportedly went outside the store, grabbing her by the wrist and pulled her back into the store where she was forced to clean-up the vomit, according to the report.
The girl told police she did clean it up and then went on her way. She was not injured as a result of the incident.
The employee admitted to police that she did make the girl come back inside to clean-up the vomit, but that she did not grab her or pull her.
According to the report, a warrant was taken out for the employee’s arrest on simple battery charges.
In Georgia, the law defines simple battery as intentionally making physical contact of an insulting or provoking nature with the person of another, or causes physical harm to another. Charges are punishable by a fine up to $1,000, up to one year imprisonment in county jail, weekend confinement or probation.
