Police in Georgia are currently searching for an ex-Waffle House worker who was filmed masturbating in one of the restaurant's booths earlier this week. 

The Smoking Gun reports that 36-year-old Emanuel Williams was recorded pleasuring himself at a Macon, Ga. Waffle House by a co-worker: 

As detailed in a second police report, Williams and a female coworker were the only employees in the eatery Monday when Williams announced that he was preparing to pleasure himself. The woman, who said she was on the phone at the time, told deputies that she did not take Williams seriously.

Upon finishing her call, the woman walked over to the suspect to see if he really was jacking his penis, and he was, an investigator reported. The woman said that she began recording Williams with her phone because she knew no one would believe her when she later recounted the incident.

She stated that as she was recording him, she was telling him the whole time that she was recording him and that he was a pervert, a deputy noted. She stated that he responded by saying he wasn't a pervert he was just a freak.

When the footage made its way to Facebook and local news outlets, Williams got the ax from the Waffle House, and he and his girlfriend reportedly threatened the woman via Facebook messages. She reported the threats to police, who are actively searching for Williams.

All of this could've been avoided.
