23-year-old Helen Yanuirian Calilx says her missing cell phone was pinging at Haunduras Restaurant on Murfreesboro Pike Thursday, so she drove to the location at 5:30 p.m. and found her boyfriend, Andy Plata, at the restaurant eating. Security footage from the restaurant shows she then confronts Plata aggressively and follows him around the restaurant yelling at him, while Plata is observed calmly walking with his hands above his shoulders and attempting to walk away and diffuse the situation.
