The business has been open less than six months, according to Brown. 

Allen and the owner were cited for disorderly conduct, but later dismissed by police Chief Vernell E. Dooley.

The owner and his staffed had to be escorted out of the parking lot by police.

Statement from the Owner:

“A man entered my store and used the bathroom. Our female employee whose job it is to daily clean our bathrooms followed him into the bathroom to clean it. We do this several times daily because of the Covid19 issue!

The woman immediately came out screaming that the bathroom toilet had been stopped up. I immediately went into the bathroom and saw hand towels scattered all over the floor!

I confronted the man, who was black, and asked him why he had put the hand towels in the toilet? And asked him didn’t he know the difference between toilet tissue and hand towels?

He said again that he had not plugged up the toilet and I immediately called him a lier, because he was my first customer that used the bathroom!

A very heated argument started between us and during that argument we called each other names! I called him a Nigger and he told me to go back to Africa!

I want people to know that I did not call him the N word, because of his color! I called him that name because of the type of character he was displaying!

I’m originally from Egypt! I am African which makes me an African American!

Looking back I can see how this might have been taken as an insult, but I didn’t mean it in that way!

However, for using this word I deeply apologize to him, my employees and my many customers”

Allen dropped a napkin in a toilet, which clogged it. The owner who has been open less than six months called Allen and his mother the N-Word. The community showed up in numbers and Shut-It-Down. The owner had to be escorted out of the parking lot. #DiscountAutoCare #GlennHeights #StayOnTheUpnUp
