KILLEEN, Texas (KWTX) A business owner and his daughter are sharing their side of the story after a brawl caught on camera went viral.
On Saturday, it was business as usual for Vicky T. and her father, Sophat, at the Best Donuts on Trimmier Road. Just days before, a fight between Vicky and an Ellison High School student was recorded and posted to social media.
“He was just like throwing his stuff around, mocking me, I’m trying to take care of customers and he’s in the background," she told News 10.
She says the fight stemmed from the student not wanting to leave the shop. Her father also said the donut shop was packed with students when the fight happened Thursday.
“The boy stands right there and tries to repeat what she’s saying. Trying to make funny noises or whatever," Sophat said.
How the incident turn into a massive brawl?
“I keep telling him to leave and he won’t leave, so I go around over there, he’s throwing his stuff around and one thing led to another," Vicky said.
In an earlier report, a witness told News 10 that he heard the student being called names. When asked about any name calling, Vicky acknowledged that words were exchanged and then there was a confrontation.
The boy returned with his two adult family members, which is where the recorded video picks up.
Killeen ISD officials confirmed that the student is no longer enrolled in the district. Those plans were already in the works due to family reasons before this incident, the district said.
When asked if they plan to file any charges or a report, Vicky answered, "no."
“My main thing is coming into our business is like coming to our house. You don’t come to our house and disrespect our house. This is how we make our living," she said.
