An angry customer who found spit in his drink after visiting a Chili’s restaurant in Clay, New York, is filing a case against the company that owns Chili’s, the franchise owner and a former waiter.
After having dinner at the Chili’s restaurant in Clay, New York, as they did almost once a week, Ken Yerdon, Julie Aluzzo-Yerdon and their 12-year-old son were driving home when Ken found something disgusting in his to-go drink.
According to Inquistr, the Yerdons contacted police, who performed a DNA test on the drink. The results showed that the spit belonged to Greg Lamica, 25, the waiter who had served the plaintiff and his family on July 28th.

Lamica had initially denied having spat in Yerdon’s drink, but when he was confronted with the DNA evidence he admitted to his disgusting act. Lamica was charged with disorderly conduct, for which he had to pay a $125 fine and is serving a one-year conditional discharge sentence.
Gregory plead guilty to disorderly conduct, and was sentenced to a one-year conditional discharge and a $125 surcharge. The Yerdons plan to sue Lamica and the owners of Chili’s later this week for the emotional trauma they endured following the incident. Because Ken had taken several sips of the drink before he noticed anything was wrong, they were concerned that he could have contracted HIV or hepatitis. While Ken initially tested negative for both, he had to wait an additional six months to be tested again.
