Yesterday, an employee at the Park Avenue South location of Panera got into a fight with her manager, and the whole, ugly ordeal was captured on a customer's smartphone. The video that's making the rounds shows the manager landing at least two swift blows before the fight gets broken up. The customer that witnessed the altercation tells Gawker: "He legit threw her down a flight of stairs and out the front door for really no reason, she runs around to the other entrance to retaliate and that’s where the video starts."

A Panera spokesperson emails Gawker to explain that an investigation is now underway and both employees are no longer working for the company.
