Fox NewsEdge iPump -- An Ohio bartender is out of a job, she says, for doing the right thing. Twyla Devito used to work at the American Legion Post in Shelby, Ohio.
Devito says she liked her job and the Legion did a lot of good work for the community and veterans. One day a regular at her bar was extremely drunk, fearing he would get into a car accident, Devito called the police. Because of that, Devito says she was fired.
"They do a lot of good for this community, for our veterans. I came into work, he was already there, pretty much hammered. He ordered a beer, I gave it to him, and then I started to try to slow it down, serving him. I called the police and said we have a very drunk person leaving the bar. He is going to kill someone or himself. He said I'm gonna have to fire you because it's bad for business to have a bartender that will call the cops," said Devito.
Shelby Police Chief Charlie Roub says the patron's blood alcohol level was just over twice the legal limit.
He's not happy Devito was punished for trying to save his life.
"I'm not very pleased by that. I mean here we have someone that's trying to do something right and ends up getting punished for it," said Roub.
The Legion Post Commander won't comment on camera. Mic Hubbard says even though what Devito did was right, the decision will hurt his business.
