A Georgia waitress was applauded for her actions after security footage from her restaurant captured her immediately taking down a male customer who groped her from behind. The incident was caught on CCTV and shows a man dressed in a red t-shirt move his hand onto the buttocks of Holden as she is looking at a notepad. The waitress immediately grabbed the man by his collar and threw him to the floor as customers watched.
The alleged groper was arrested the next day.
Police charged Ryan Cherwinski, 31, with sexual battery after seeing the video, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported.
Holden said all women should feel empowered to do exactly what she did.

She was then seen on camera yelling at the sicko, who was arrested after cops reviewed the footage. "I took the guy down and had my co-workers call the police", Holden said.
Holden told the station she has received mostly positive responses to the June 30 incident that went viral this week.
Police were called and the man was arrested, according to the Daily Mail. It didn't take long to go viral. "She would have been well within her rights to smash him a couple more times", another said. "When I felt that happen, my first thought was that it was one of my friends ... it was a really intimate touch", Holden continued. I know what happened, I was there. "I've never done that before", Holden added. "I was like, no, youre not going anywhere".
"I'm glad that other women can see this and know that you can stand up for yourself", Emelia Holden, 21, told People on Thursday. "What I get from this is just how inspiring it is to other women. You also have the right to wear whatever you want without having to worry about being groped", she told People.
