The video that has gone viral of a Comerica Park employee spitting on pizza intended for customers now has a new update. The employee has been charged for his actions.
“As soon as we became aware through social media of potential food tampering Friday night, we immediately closed that food stand and disposed of all the product. Food safety is our top priority and we will take any appropriate action necessary to protect our guests,” Detroit Sportservice said.
Quinelle May, the one that shared the video on social media, said the worker was "mad and having a bad day" and also claimed to have done it in the past.
May said that after he recorded the sickening video, he tried to find people to tell them about it, but couldn't find anybody. He even claims his managers got mad at him and shut him down when they tried to tell them about the incident. "Every time I tried to talk, they told me to shut up," May said.
A spokesperson for Detroit Sportservice says May has not been fired but was suspended. They released the following statement:
The employee who filmed and posted the video was sent home from the game Friday evening on an unrelated uniform violation prior to us learning about the food tampering via the video being posted on social media. Our only subsequent communication with that employee was to let him know that he would not be working Saturday or Sunday. No one acting in an official work capacity asked him to remove the video. We referred information regarding the video to the Detroit Police Department and they have told us it is an active investigation.
