The video has gone viral

DETROIT (WWJ) - The video posted on social media Saturday shows an employee preparing a pizza and then spitting on the dough, before putting sauce on top. 

Comerica Park representatives report the incident actually happened Friday. 

Detroit Sportservice officials released a statement that once they became aware of it through social media, they immediately closed that food stand and disposed of all the product. 

They went on to state, "Food safety is our top priority and we will take any appropriate action necessary to protect our guests.” 

Nell May, who posted the video on his Facebook page, says that he shot the video of his co-worker who was angry at management for yelling at him -- and was fired after making the video public. 

Lynette Roberts attended the Detroit Tigers game that night and believes she ate pizza that was spat on. 

She's a former neighbor of May and thinks he was trying to warn her not to eat the pizza. 

"It's so sickening to think about," she says. The 43-year-old Roberts said she ordered the meat-trio pizza and said they were cooking it up fresh. "I've literally been sick the whole time. That's the nastiest thing you can do is to spit on someone or something."

She said she's going to file a police report and she's concerned that she might be exposed to any number of diseases. 

She says that May reached out to her on Facebook and told her he tried to find her after she got her food to tell her not to eat it. 

The employee, whose name has not been released, was fired. He is in custody and charges are expected to be filed by Wayne County Prosecutors on Tuesday.
