A Best Buy employee who protected her store against a shoplifter has been fired, but the president of UFC is already looking to help her out. The woman worked at a Best Buy in Hawaii, and recently had a video of her stopping a shoplifter go viral. The altercation ended up costing her job. Now, Dana White believes that she was treated unfairly, and he has an offer for her that may work out better in the long run.
Summer Tapasa was working as security at Best Buy when she noticed a man trying to rush out of the door, as reported by ABC 7. The man was carrying an expensive portable speaker that he hadn't paid for, and he was attempting to get out of the store with the stolen goods.
Tapasa knew that the same man had stolen another speaker from that same Best Buy just days earlier, and she wasn't going to let him do it again. She took it upon herself to stop him with physical force, even though Best Buy's company policy does not approve of such action.
Due to the way she stopped the man from stealing the item, she was fired from the store. Thanks to social media, it hasn't taken long for the world to take notice, and that includes UFC president Dana White.
