Trending News: Watch This Woman Body-Slam A Guy For Groping Her Butt
Long Story Short
Justice has been served thanks to a tough 21-year-old and security cam footage.
Emelia Holden, a waitress at Vinnie Van Go-Go’s in Savannah, Georgia, had just taken an order when she noticed someone touch her butt.
“When I felt that happen, my first thought was that it was one of my friends … it was a really intimate touch,” she told People. “His hand went further than it should have so I was thinking, ‘There’s no way a stranger just did that.'”

Holden immediately took the matter into her own hands. She grabbed the guy by the back of his shirt and body-slammed him into the corner.
“I looked at him and I said, ‘You don’t touch me, motherf*cker!’” Holden told People. “I didn’t even think, I just reacted. I don’t know how I reacted the way I did. I’ve never done that before.”
The guy allegedly claimed he was just trying to push her out of the way, but security footage caught him in the act and he was arrested and charged with sexual battery,
The video has since gone viral, amassing over two million views on YouTube.
“I’m not glad that it happened, but I’m glad that it’s had such a positive outcome,” Holden told People. “I’m glad that other women can see this and know that you can stand up for yourself. You also have the right to wear whatever you want without having to worry about being groped.”
