Bartender Fired For Reporting Drunk Driver to Police

fired bartender

No good deed goes unpunished.

One bartender knows that all too well.

Twyla DeVito, a bartender at an American Legion Post in Ohio was working one night when one of her regulars, who apparently is on the Board of the APL, seemed drunk, then got in his car to drive home.

According to ABC News, she called police to report it (though she wasn’t legally obligated to), who pulled over the driver with a blood alcohol level more than twice the legal limit.

She was then fired for the incident, with her boss telling her she was ‘bad for business.’

Meanwhile, if she hadn’t reported it, and he got into an accident, couldn’t he sue her AND the bar?

It seems unfair, to say the least.

I think she was being a responsible bartender, and the patron is just annoyed that he got caught for driving under the influence. He clearly would rather go to a bar and drive home drunk without worrying about being ‘ratted out.’

His poor decision doesn’t make her bad for business. It makes her someone who may have saved a few lives.

I hope she finds a new job somewhere else soon, because she deserves better than the treatment she received.

Do you think she should have been fired? Share your thoughts in the comment section below!
