Three employees at a Georgia Denny's are under scrutiny after allegedly assaulting a journalist who was at the restaurant to question the location about failing a recent inspection by the state health department.
According to an inspection from the Georgia Department of Public Health, the Denny's location received a grade of unsatisfactory on an inspection that occurred on April 30. The Lithonia, Georgia store was awarded 52 points out of a possible 100 points and given a risk level of 3 - the highest issued.
Violations observed during inspection included food not being properly separated or protected, food not being stored in covered containers and surfaces that came into contact with food not being cleaned or properly sanitized.
None of the employees who spoke to Murphy and Lotovski have been identified, but raw footage shared by the tv station shows the men being told to leave the premises when they entered the restaurant and the threat of calling the police.
"Don’t put the camera in my face! I’m going to call the police," an unidentified female employee told the men before she and another employee pushed them out of the restaurant.
