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.

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.
