An off-duty manager of a McDonald’s in Marietta, Georgia, was caught on surveillance tape as she harassed the mother of autistic twin boys because they came into the restaurant with a service dog.

The mom, Jennifer Schwenker, told manager Tiffany Denise Allen that the dog was specially trained to help her boys. But Allen didn’t care for that explanation, and followed the family around the restaurant. At one point Schwenker entered a bathroom with her brood to get away from Allen.

After they left, police say Allen punched the mom in the face.

You’ll find the TV report, complete with the surveillance video, above.

The manager has been fired, and police have charged her with simple battery, simple assault fear and disorderly conduct.

We often hear about this sort of discrimination, but it’s rare to see it. How does it make you feel to witness this, Dogsters?
