ROSEVILLE, Mich. (AP) -- A 132-pound server with the Hooters
restaurant chain claims she's been put on probation because of her
weight.

Twenty-year-old Cassie Smith told WJBK-TV that she got a
generally glowing review at the Roseville restaurant. But the
5-foot, 8-inch woman said an evaluation related to her uniform
indicated that she needed to drop some weight.

Smith says she was horrified, heartbroken and humiliated.

Atlanta-based Hooters of America Inc. denies the claim. It said
in a statement Tuesday that Hooters doesn't impose a weight
requirement and "no employee in Michigan has been counseled about
their weight."

The restaurant chain that featuring waitresses clad in tank tops
and tight shorts says its standards are legal and fair.
