KERMIT, W.Va. (AP) - A southern West Virginia restaurant where a district manager was caught on surveillance video urinating into a sink is closing permanently.
The video dated Jan. 29 shows the manager at the Kermit restaurant urinating in a metal sink in a food preparation area. The incident occurred after business hours. The employee was fired.
Pizza Hut Corp. spokesman Doug Terfehr said Wednesday the decision to permanently close the restaurant was made Feb. 19, the day after the video surfaced.
The restaurant was owned by Wichita, Kan.-based Rage Inc. The company's website says it owns Pizza Huts in seven states, including other West Virginia locations in Ceredo, Chapmanville, Danville and two in Logan.
