Atlanta PD: Officers Followed Proper Procedure at IHOP
May 17, 2011
An off-duty officer who took an intoxicated woman into custody during a scuffle at a suburban Atlanta IHOP followed proper procedure, an internal review by the Atlanta Police Department has found.
Officer Jose Vidal, who was hired by IHOP to provide security, wrote in a report he confronted Cynthia Freeman because she was loud and shouting to people in another booth. He reportedly told her to be quiet or leave.
Ashley Leavell then began punching the officer, who punched Leavell before arresting her.

Great work! Babysitting drunks is the worst. I can imagine why an IHOP needs security and I can't believe how everyone just sits around and watches, what is wrong with people in our society, who just sits and eats while there's a fight. You can bet that if it wasn't an officer the video would've been a whole lot different. Great job again Officer Vidal.
