There have been a lot of incidents regarding customers being rude to restaurant staff that went viral on social media. Sometimes they argue with the workers, and sometimes the scuffle ends up getting physical. However, an old video recently resurfaced online involving a customer getting slammed by a worker at a Taco bell joint, which looked like a MMA move.
The incident in question took place at the Taco Bell branch in Swansea, Wales. A customer was seen as being very aggressive and charged toward one of the restaurant’s worker. Another man who accompanied the aggressive customer was trying to calm him down. But the angry customer ran toward the Taco Bell staff member in an attempt to punch him.

However, the employee was able to anticipate the attack as soon as the man swung his hands. He picked up the customer and slammed him onto the floor like a UFC move. It was a horrific scene as the customer remained motionless on the floor. It shocked onlookers to see the man lying unconscious as blood started streaming from his head. The unconscious man was later attended to by the Welsh Ambulance Service.

Looks like self defense to me, the man swung at him

Hard to know without more context, but with just this video to go off of… this is the most clear self defense case one could possibly make.

This 100% qualifies as SELF DEFENSE. A

Many Twitter users claim that the customer was in the wrong. They believe that without more context to the video; it seems like the staff member was trying to defend himself.
Why do people in fights pick up and slam their opponents? I’ve never understood that . That’s just risking to commit manslaughter all over a misunderstanding

If this isn’t self defense… I don’t know what is.

The second the guy intended contact with the employee – the law says that's assault. When he made physical contact that's battery. Defending yourself from assault is allowed, especially since the video makes clear the customer fully intended to pursue and harm the employee.

Some people believe that it isn’t wrong to defend ourselves if somebody tries to aggress toward us. They claim that the customer was clearly in the wrong. A Twitter user also mentioned how engaging in fights to address a misunderstanding only causes more problems.
