Woman who hurled hot soup at restaurant worker's face arrested

She’s in hot water now.

An irate Texas woman caught on viral video hurling a bowl of spicy soup into the face of an unsuspecting restaurant manager has been busted.

Amanda Martinez, 31, was arrested Wednesday morning and charged with assault in the shocking caught-on-video Nov. 7 attack at Sol De Jalisco Mexican restaurant in Temple, KWTX-TV reported.

“We do not condone this type of behavior and hold our citizens to the highest standard,” Temple Deputy Police Chief Allen Teston told the station. “If a citizen believes they have received poor service we advise them to remain civil until the problem is resolved.”

Police said Martinez picked up an order at the Mexican eatery but was stewing when she returned to complain that her soup was so hot it melted the plastic cover on the container.

Restaurant manager Jannelle Broland apologized to the irate customer and offered a refund or another menu item.

But Martinez allegedly demanded to speak to another manager and finally blew up, throwing the spicy soup into the face of a stunned Broland before storming out.

“My first thought was, ‘What just happened?’” Broland told TMZ after the incident. “‘Why, like, why is this happening?’ I realized I couldn’t open my eyes and I wiped away and I realized I was like, ‘Wow. She really just, she threw that at me.’”
