Health officials have temporarily shut down a West Virginia pizza restaurant after a district manager was caught on surveillance video urinating into a sink.
Mingo County health department ordered the Pizza Hut in Kermit, about 85 miles south west of Charleston, to shut down, local media said.
Pizza Hut released a statement saying it was "embarrassed" by the manager's actions. The company said it has "zero tolerance" for violations of its operating standards.
The employee, whose name was not released, was fired.
The video shows the manager urinating in a sink in the kitchen. Pizza Hut said the incident occurred after business hours.
City health official Brett Vance said the restaurant was closed until it is thoroughly cleaned and there are reassurances of safeguards in place.
