In L.A. County an owner of a brewery shared that a health inspector broke out into a dance after informing the business owner that he would be shutting down the establishment right before the Super Bowl, according to Fox News.
Bart Avery, one of the owners, said the inspector visited the brewery at about 11 a.m. on Super Bowl Sunday.
The inspector said the brewery was in violation of county guidelines because there was no food truck, and it had to close.
An LA County health inspector dances moments after ordering @BraveryBrewing to close. She ended up being wrong. Ruined BB's Super Bowl business.

Avery said his brewery has been “decimated financially and emotionally.”
Bravery Brewery does so much for our local veterans. The Avery family are committed volunteers in the AV & have suffered financial hardships bc of Newsom’s unsteady leadership addressing COVID-29.

As it turns out Avery pointed out that, in fact, the inspector was incorrect.
The Brewery was pouring draft beer to-go, effectively creating a loophole where they did not need a food truck to operate their establishment.
The inspector’s boss called and apologized for the confusion.
More from Fox News:
Avery eventually went back to view one of the security cameras and said he spotted the inspector break into a dance just moments after delivering the news that the place had to close. Of course, he has no way of knowing why the inspector felt compelled to dance, but “the perception really sucks,” he said.
She had just informed the worker that he could be out of a job, he said. Considering all the pain that these lockdowns inflicted on small business owners, the dance was jarring, he said.
