CHICAGO (WLS) --

A manager at the Poke Poke restaurant in Chicago's Loop was fired after he allegedly threw a chair at a black teen, the company said Thursday.

The manager, identified as Matthew Fezzey, alleged that the teen clenched his fist and made a threat, according to a police report.

The teen, a high school student named John Kyle Johnson, was walking past the restaurant last week when Fezzey motioned him to come inside to confront him and then threw a chair at him. Johnson went to the ER after the chair hit his arm.
