The owner of a Pomona bakery has filed a claim with Los Angeles County after alleging one of their health inspectors groped her while visiting her shop as part of his job duties, according to cbs2. The bakery proprietor says that Magdy Tawadros "used his position to intimidate her and tried repeatedly to hug her in a back room of her business last month." The encounter was captured on the bakery's surveillance camera, and Tawadros has since been suspended without pay. The woman's claim with the county is for up to $10 million in damages.
