GERMANTOWN (WISN) — Police have released new surveillance video of a man who was in an all-out brawl with a 16-year-old Cracker Barrel employee in October. The customer was thrown out of the restaurant for making homophobic comments to his server.
WISN 12 News was told an argument with the manager turned heated. A 16-year-old employee tried to intervene, and the customer went after him.
The pair tumbled into the racks of trinkets and ornaments and eventually went to the ground. The back-and-forth continued for a bit with the customer losing his Brewers shirt in the process.
“It (surveillance video) definitely shows this customer in the wrong, being the aggressor in the scenario,” Germantown police Capt. Mike Snow said.
The 16-year-old seemed to be holding his own, but police said he’s shown taking a defensive posture, trying to keep the man at bay.
“This was an adult attacking a juvenile. We want this person to have to answer for that crime,” Snow said.
WISN 12 News reported on this when it happened a month ago, but police have few leads.
“There is that possibility that they are not from the area, but having the Brewer logo on the sweatshirt leads us to believe that they’re probably local, and (it’s) certainly worth the effort of getting it out there again to see if we can generate some more information,” Snow said.
Police don’t have a vehicle description. If they can track him down, the man could face charges of battery to a juvenile, criminal damage to property and disorderly conduct.
Anyone who recognizes him is asked to call Germantown police.
