Emelia said: "I just did what I felt was best".

Holden told People she at first thought one of her friends had touched her because it was "really intimate". I just reacted. I don't know how I reacted the way I did.

'His hand went further than it should have so I was thinking, there's no way a stranger just did that. Cherwinski reportedly told officers that he didn't mean to touch the waitress and that he was only trying to get her to move out of his way.

After reviewing the surveillance footage taken inside the restaurant, police arrested Cherwinski and handed him over to the Chatham County Sheriff's Office on June 30.

"You have every right to stand up for yourself regardless of what you are wearing", she told Inside Edition. "You also have the right to wear whatever you want without having to worry about being groped".
