MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (WKRN) – It was all in fun and games, just part of the job, but it was no laughing matter to a Texas couple.
A hibachi chef used a toy doll to squirt water as part of his entertainment while cooking.
Water shoots out of a hole when the chef lowers the shorts on the toy, which looks like a boy, but the husband of a woman who was sprayed is now claiming sexual assault.
At the Wasabi Japanese Steakhouse in Murfreesboro, the food here is explosive. It’s served with a bit more flare than your typical restaurant, and folks seem to love it.
“Its entertainment, very entertaining as a matter of fact,” said customer Felicia Vargas.
That’s what Chef Chino Nguyen was doing Monday—entertaining customers.
But a Texas man, who was eating at the restaurant with his family that day, said the chef sexually assaulted his wife by spraying water on her.
He showed News 2 the toy. “You pull down the pant like that,” Nguyen said.
It’s a toy that resembles boy and shoots water out of a hole when the shorts are pressed down.
News 2 spoke with the manager Wasabi who told News 2 when they left the couple seemed to be satisfied, saying the food and service was good.
About 30 minutes later, the husband returned to complain about the toy.
The manager said the man gave her two choices—either refund them for the meal or he would call police and have the business shut down.
He ultimately called 911, telling the dispatcher he isn’t from Tennessee so he wasn’t sure of their protocol about calling the emergency number.
The husband then relayed what happened.
“The chef here that was doing our meal, at the end of the meal pulled out this little freakin’ doll with its pants down and he shot water on my wife out of its d***,” the man told a Murfreesboro police dispatcher.
The man claims management did nothing.
“I tried speaking to the management about it; they’re not going to do anything about it,” the man said.
He continued, “That is a sexual assault against my wife and totally disrespectful,” adding, “I’m not from Tennessee so I don’t know Tennessee laws, but in Texas that is sexual assault.”
The manager of the restaurant believes he was trying to get a free meal and the chef was shocked.
“Real surprised,” Nguyen reacted. “I was shocked, real nervous, wondering what’s going on.”
Customers were shocked, too.
“I just shook my head and thought you got to be kidding me; you got to be kidding me,” Vargas said. “This is the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever heard of.”
Police took an incident report but is not investigating. The Texas man was advised on how to request a warrant if he so chooses.
News 2 reached out to the man, and he told us the last reporter who called him made a joke of the situation. He said no thank you and hung up the phone.

(WISE, Va.) – Although it feels like summer has just begun, it will soon be time for children to go back to school. All school-age children, from preschoolers to college students, need vaccines.
Virginia requires documented proof of vaccinations for children entering kindergarten, sixth grade and new students attending a public or private elementary, middle or secondary school, child care center, nursery school, family day care home or developmental center. The LENOWISCO Health District staff wishes to remind parents to check their child’s shot records or call a public health nurse if you need assistance evaluating your child’s record. Without these required vaccinations, your child’s school attendance may be restricted:
“Vaccines offer effective protection for everyone in the community from serious illnesses such as polio, measles, whooping cough, influenza, meningitis, chickenpox and pneumonia,” said Eleanor S Cantrell, MD, director, LENOWISCO Health District. “Some of these diseases are now rare in the United States because of vaccines; however, they still exist and can lead to many missed school days, missed work for parents, hospitalizations and even premature deaths. Making sure that children receive all their vaccinations on time is one of the most important things parents can do to safeguard their children's long-term health—as well as the health of friends, classmates and other people in your community.”
If your child needs vaccines, visit their clinician now or bring them to the local health department. The health department has walk-in clinics available and no appointment is needed. Call for dates and times. Immunizations required for school entry (K-12) according to the Code of Virginia are provided free of charge. If your child is entering the school system for the first time, s/he will also require a physical. You may also schedule your child’s physical at the health department; fees are based on family income levels.
For more information, call your local health department:

More than 200 jobs could be coming to eastern Kentucky if a proposal for a prison nursing home moves forward.
The Floyd County Fiscal Court backed the decision, voting unanimously in support for the project.
The skilled nursing facility would cater to ill, end-of-life inmates.
"We're looking at a possibility of a $5 million payroll based on 1.5 people working for every one bed," Floyd County Judge Executive Ben Hale told WSAZ TV.
Prisoners with serious medical issues will be placed as parolees in the facility, where a skilled nursing staff can care for them around the clock.
Hales says 24/7 care for end-of-life prisoners is a heavy cost burden for the state.
"Even though they could be paroled, they could have families that aren't wanting them, don't want the expense of taking care of end of life care and it still falls back on the state at that point," Hales said.
Prisoners must meet specific criteria outlined by Social Security -- then medical bills will be paid through Medicaid and Medicare.
Prisoners from across the state of Kentucky would be eligible for the facility.
Officials reiterated that those in the facility would not be a danger to the community. The ill prisoners are bedridden and some can't feed or walk by themselves.
Community members say they can get behind the project, if it means good jobs for the area.
"I think it'll be a good idea," Lakisha Ousley said. "And that'll be more money coming in for everybody else."
The facility would be the second of its kind in the country. A prison nursing home is set to open this fall in Georgia.
The project would require a $7 million to $9 million investment by a private company.
