Employee with Soup Thrown on Face Seeking Higher Charge



TEMPLE, Texas – The Temple Police Department will further investigate the active case of an angry customer throwing soup on a restaurant employee.

Authorities are seeking a higher level charge, after a Class C Misdemeanor charge presented to a Municipal Court was dismissed.

According to investigators, a woman called the restaurant on November 9 to complain about an order she had picked up. Witnesses say she then went to the restaurant and started a verbal altercation.

Police say the woman was upset that the soup she ordered was hot and that the plastic lid had melted. That’s when officers say she threw the soup at a restaurant employee and left.
