She was given a choice: either pay back the money that was stolen in the armed robbery, or lose her job.

Marissa Holcomb, a mother of three with another one on the way, was held up at gunpoint on March 31st at the Popeyes in Channelview, Texas, and it was all caught on surveillance video. She was the shift manager on staff at the time.

A man in a ski mask waves a gun around, demanding money and orders the employees to the floor. Holcomb was ordered to open the safe, which she doesn't have access to. The gunman made off with $400 from the registers.

A couple of days later, the manager gave her an ultimatum: repay the stolen money or lose her job.

"I told them I'm not paying nothing," said Holcomb. "I just had a gun to me. I'm not paying the money."

The local franchise owner refused to comment on the situation. However, the company's HR manager says that this wasn't her first offense, and she was actually fired for leaving too much money in the register. You can read the full story HERE.

Not gonna lie, I smell a rat. I don't believe their story for a second. Ridiculous.
