“The guy that was actually driving my car, I would not mind at all if he were fired," Holland said. "Hopefully he learns a lesson out of it. Just do your job."

The company said it will reimburse Holland.

“The video we recently received isn’t entirely clear and we’re unable to determine the make/model of the vehicle and the driver’s identity,” company officials said in a statement. “Nevertheless, we’re taking the matter very seriously. Valet connections has the highest service standards and if our internal review finds that our driver behaved inappropriately, we’ll take necessary disciplinary action. we’ll also use this opportunity to review our service standards with our employees to ensure nothing of this sort happens in the future.”
