The footage was first posted on Reddit showing a heated exchange between a man and woman. She can be seen swinging her fists at the man as he holds a beer and a carryout container. He eventually threw the carryout food in her face.
Baytown, Texas police officers said the people in the video are a couple. They identified them as Garett Wilder, 26, and his girlfriend, Brittany Farber, 24. They charged them both with misdemeanors for public intoxication.
Wilder talked to our sister station, KTRK, about the incident after KTRK tracked him down. He admitted alcohol played a factor. He expressed remorse about the altercation.
“I’ve got nothing to say about it really,” said Wilder. “I really don’t want to talk about. She was a little embarrassed by it, but now she’s kind of embraced it that everyone has seen it.” Wilder said Farber was at work Thursday afternoon. He said the two are back together and haven’t had any alcohol since the incident.
The restaurant where the incident occured, Bayou City Wings, said they suspended three employees as a result of the video being posted online.
