‘My general manager and my other managers tell us that because of the corona, we cannot sit at a table larger than six[virus]. We have to separate them, ”Wallace said.
But when the straight A student tried to explain the chain’s policies to the group, they were immediately turned on by her.
In addition to needing stitches for an injury to her eye, Wallace also had hair pulled from her scalp
The teen also suffered from several broken nails
“And they got upset, so the first thing I did was get my manager,” said Wallace, a student at Broadmoor Senior High School.
Wallace retrieved her manager and stood behind them as the party began to hurl insults.
While shouting back, she said they had taken the first step.
The teenager said, “But then a girl came and she just hit me; we just started fighting. And everyone they were with just started hitting me, and the lady who pushed me first takes the plate with the wet floor, pecks back and hits me in the eye with it. ‘
By the time Baton Rouge police arrived, all the women had already fled the scene in their car.
Wallace had to get stitches over her eye and hair was pulled from her scalp as well. The teenager also had a pair of broken nails.
The girl’s grandmother is shocked by the whole ordeal.
‘I couldn’t believe they would act or act like that, and I mean grown women, to fight a 17-year-old kid at work, who’s trying to work to get her graduate business together so she can leave going to college, ”said Lorrain Byrd, Wallace’s grandmother.
Wallace, who started in June, said she was just trying to do her job.

“I was just trying to follow the rules and make sure I wouldn’t get in trouble,” she said. As if this is just overwhelming. I just can’t believe this has happened to me of all people. ‘
She has no intention of returning to the restaurant.
A representative from Chile issued a statement about the testing.
Wallace will return to school soon, but says she will not be returning to the Chili’s.
