CHICAGO (AP) - A Chicago woman who contends she didn’t deserve to be fired from her job at a fried chicken restaurant for throwing a bread knife at an unruly teenage customer has filed a lawsuit against the restaurant chain.

The Chicago Sun-Times (https://bit.ly/1w8SyTD ) reports that Sherita Harrison alleges in her $200,000 federal lawsuit that Popeye’s Chicken violated her Second Amendment rights to arm herself and her civil rights by firing her.

The 30-year-old Harrison admits she threw the knife but says she was acting in self-defense when a group of teens spit at her and threatened her to jump over the counter and kill her.

Franchise owner Ed Obiala says there is no excuse for throwing a knife at a customer and he had no choice but to fire Harrison.
