Sodexo workers fight at Norris

Two Sodexo workers got into a fight last week at Norris University Center, police said.

Three workers were talking and joking on May 12 at about 3:45 p.m. when one, a man, became agitated with the female worker present, Deputy Chief of University Police Dan McAleer said. The man claimed the woman was making fun of him, after which he approached her and told her to sit down and shut up, McAleer said.

The third worker placed himself between the woman and the approaching man, and the man began pushing the worker. The three individuals were separated and University Police responded to the scene. The worker who was pushed elected not to pursue criminal charges, police said.

The employees’ manager said the incident would be handled through the human resources department, McAleer said.
