PASCO, Wash. (AP) - A woman who worked at a Pasco casino says she was fired for calling police when she saw a man hit his girlfriend.
Jessica Haines told KNDU she was off the clock and had changed out of her uniform last Thursday when she saw the man strike the woman and drive away from the Lucky Bridge Casino. She jotted down the license number and called police.
She was fired Sunday. Manager Pond Muony says she failed to follow procedures and should have notified casino management and security first.
Haines says she felt an obligation and responsibility to call police when she saw how scared the woman looked. Officers did not find the car and don't know what happened to the woman.
