Woman billed $5 for using restaurant bathroom

(WKRN-TV) A woman in Erin, Tennessee has spoken out regarding a letter sent to her home asking her to pay $5 for using a restaurant’s restroom that was reserved for customers only.

Patricia Barnes is facing public backlash after the owner of The Flood Zone got her information from the sheriff in Houston County and sent her a letter regarding her use of the ‘customers only’ restroom.

Barnes spoke to 13WHAM-TV’s sister station, WKRN Nashville’s News 2 on Thursday.

She said that after a long October morning at a turkey shoot just across from the restaurant, she went in, perused the menu briefly and left without buying anything.

She also made a pit stop in the restroom.
