A frustrated restaurant owner in California turned the situation around with a local health inspector, stranding his vehicle after being forced to close due to Covid regulations.
The man’s plight was caught on camera as police arrived to question him, as his van was parked in the middle of the street, preventing the Los Angeles County Health Inspector’s sedan to get out of his parking space.
In the December 20 video, the owner of Bread and Barley in Covina is heard explaining to a police officer that the health inspector was taking pictures of his business in an attempt to keep it closed.
“I’m blocking his ass because he wants to come here and say nobody can work – so he can’t work either,” restauranteur Carlos Roman told an officer.
“He decided to come today and take pictures of people outside and they will try to fine us … So if we can’t work he can’t work,” says Roman, advising to the officer to summon a supervisor.
“This is what happens when people are desperate,” says Roman. “I’m desperate.”
“Who is going to pay for his car?” he asks, pointing to the person filming. “Who is going to pay my cook’s rent?”
After the arrival of other police officers, Roman shifts his truck a few meters to exit the road, but continues to block the path of the health inspector.
“The problem is,” he said to another officer, “this guy from the health department is coming, we can’t have alfresco dining, we can’t serve take-out food, no one can s. ‘sit outside. No one can sit on the fucking city bench in front of the restaurant. What the fuck do they want us to do? We can’t survive anymore, man. I can’t pay the fucking bills. I am late on everything. I can’t pay the bills. what do I say [employees]? “The health department told me they had a job to do. Do I tell my employees that their pay will come: “We’re all in the same boat”? “
The health inspector was citing the company that day after two customers were seen dining out, according to CBS Los Angeles.
CBS LA reports that Roman had modernized his business to accommodate outdoor dining, but recent Covid restrictions have even ruled out that as an option.
“I think we have entered the realm of a losing situation,” he told local media.
Following the incident, Roman was also reportedly received two fines of $ 500 for interference with the health inspector.
Thankfully, messages of support poured into the company’s Facebook page after the confrontation went viral.
