Emelia Holden, a waitress at Vinnie Van Go-Go's in Savannah, Georgia fought back when a man groped her while she was working.
Surveillance footage shows Holden, 21, taking orders when a man approached her from behind and cupped her backside. She then grabbed him by the collar and slammed him into the counter behind her.
"I looked at him and said, 'You don't touch me, motherf----!'" Holden said in an interview with magazine. "I didn't even think, I just reacted."
According to police, the man in the video is 31-year-old Ryan Cherwinski from Palm Bay, Florida.
Cherwinski told police it was just an accident, and that he was trying to inform her to move because she was in his way, according to a report from a local news station.
Holden instructed a co-worker to call the police after the incident occurred. Though Cherwinski said it was an accident, police arrested him once they saw the video, according to Holden. Cherwinski was arrested on charges of sexual battery, according to People.
"There was no doubt that he did it," she said.
The surveillance footage has been viewed over two million times on YouTube.
Holden said she's received dozens of Facebook messages with praise and support from other women.
"I'm glad other women can see this and know that you can stand up for yourself," she said.
