Workers brawl with customer at downtown Leo's

An unwelcome customer at Leo’s Coney Island, 154 S. Old Woodward in Birmingham, reported to Birmingham police that he was attacked by staff when he tried to enter the restaurant on Sunday, January 22.

When officers arrived at the scene, the reporting party stated he tried to enter the diner but was told by an employee he was not welcome and was asked to leave. He also told officers that a group of female employees tried pushing him out of the building, and one punched him in the lip.

Later, the group of staff from the restaurant reported to officers that the man tried to enter but was asked to leave due to a previous incident and he became agitated. He then tried swinging at the group, said the members of the staff, and tried to push past them into the building. The women attempted to remove him when he did not leave.

Birmingham police state the man did not want to press charges or receive medical attention.
