Bartender fired for calling police: Twyla Devito reported a drunk driver in Ohio

SHELBY, Ohio - An Ohio bartender is now looking for a new job after she was fired for calling the police on a bar patron.

Twyla Devito was bartending at an American Legion Post when she called police after she saw a man leaving drunk. According CNN, Devito said she came into work that day and saw the man, who was a regular at the bar, already hammered.

"He ordered a beer, I gave it to him, and then I started to try to slow it down, serving him," she told CNN.

When he left the bar, she called police. Officers later charged the man with an OVI or Operating a Vehicle Under the Influence, after blowing a .16, which is twice the legal limit.

Two days later, Devito's boss fired her saying that it was bad for the business to have a bartender that would call the cops on customers.

Devito says she stands by her decision.

What do you think, should Devito have been fired?
