GRAMERCY PARK, N.Y. —  A graphic video shows the male manager of a New York Panera Bread striking a female employee as she quits her job.  PIX11 reports that both the manager and  employee are now out of a job.

The YouTube user who uploaded the video said the confrontation started when the woman was thrown out of the store. It was her return that sparked the video being filmed.

Panera Bread told PIX that such behavior is not tolerated by the company, leading to the termination of both employees.

There’s no word on any criminal charges.

Throughout those episodes Beau Biden continued serving as Delaware’s attorney general, a position to which he…
