Temple police said criminal charges were pending against a woman who threw soup in the face of an employee at a Sol De Jalisco in Temple.
Video shows the entire incident that quickly went viral on social media.
It happened a little before 1:30 p.m. Nov. 7 at the restaurant at 4201 S. General Bruce Dr.
Police said the woman, who they did not identify, first called to complain about the soup she ordered. She spoke with Jannelle Broland who later posted a video on TikTok saying the woman was cursing at her.
The woman later came to the restaurant and is seen in the video arguing with Broland behind the counter. Police said she complained that the soup was so hot that it melted the plastic lid on top of it.
The woman then suddenly throws the entire container of soup in Broland’s face and quickly leaves the restaurant with a man standing next to her.
“My first thought was what just happened, why, like why is this happening and I realized I couldn’t open my eyes and I wiped away and I realized I was like wow, she she really just she threw that at me,” Broland said. “She really threw that right at me.”
