CORAL SPRINGS, FL – Earlier this month, a 33-year-old Coral Springs woman walked into a Subway restaurant to get a sub.
A short time later, Cathy Philistin left in police custody after getting into an alleged fight with an employee over “hygiene protocols.”
According to a Coral Springs police report, the Feb. 12 incident at the restaurant at 10613 Wiles Road ended with a bystander running in to separate Philistin from the employee who Philistin allegedly hit.
The employee told police that she was making Philistin a sub when Philistin rudely told her to switch gloves after touching the oven.
After the two exchanged words, Philistin walked into the restricted employee area of the restaurant and told the employee: “You need me to come back there and teach you how to do your job?” according to the report.
Two then got into a fight in the restaurant’s sitting area.
The report said a customer tried to get Philistin off the employee, and when that didn’t work, the customer ran outside the restaurant and asked for help.
That’s when the bystander came in and separated Philistin and the employee.
After speaking with the employee and witnesses and reviewing the restaurant’s video surveillance, police charged Philistin with battery and burglary.
The employee suffered a bloodied pinky, swelling over her left eye, and redness to her cheeks, the report said.
She also had six broken nails.
