Bug in rice noodles prompts complaint
A deputy was dispatched to an oriental restaurant on Atlanta Highway after the store manager and several customers had a disagreement regarding payment of a bill.
The customers did not believe they should have to pay the bill considering the fact they discovered a small piece of wire in one dish and a dead roach in a bowl of rice noodles which had been served to them.
The deputy noticed several small dead bugs on the floor of the restaurant.
The manager of the store said they had eaten the food and should pay for it.
The deputy advised the customers to pay the tab and call the health department or face charges of theft of services.
The restaurant in question was last inspected in March of this year and scored a 95 with no critical violations noted.
