A front desk security camera at a hotel in Brazil caught a beat down that occurred between a guest and a check-in agent Saturday night after the 24 year old reception agent insisted on taking the customer’s temperature as they entered the property.
The man, who apparently objected to contactless thermometers the way some airline passengers feel about masks, seemed as though he was going to walk away and leave. He comes back and hits the employee with a pedestal and threw hand sanitizer as well.
That’s when the desk agent goes full on Bruce Lee in Fists of Fury on the customer. A woman enters the view and takes the beaten down man away and they drove off.

The incident, which occurred in Varginha, in southern Minas, was reported to military police by the desk worker. The guest was tracked down and claimed to have been treated ‘rudely’ by the employee whom, he says, ‘demanded advance payment’ for the stay. Naturally, being asked for money up front (or to have funds held on a credit card) warrants the usual response of violence.
Reportedly the guest called the hotel several times after the altercation to threaten the desk clerk. I wonder how the call goes when asking to be transferred.
