— A former restaurant worker who complained of being unpaid was arrested Monday for breaking into his old place of work.

Authorities charged Dennis Carter with breaking and entering into the Prime Only Steakhouse & Sushi Bar, 505 W. Jones St.

The state Department of Labor has been investigating complaints from six former employees about bounced paychecks and unpaid wages.

The restaurant owners unexpectedly closed the establishment in early September, citing economic reasons.

    I know one of the owners of Prime Only, I can't remember his name though,He comes to my place of work for his Buisness. He looks very greasy and sleazy, I think he owns a bail bonds company also, He should sell the Lambogini that he drive all over town, maybe then he could pay his ex-workers

    well drcarter, i have to say that it is still not the right or most highly intelligent thing to do, taking things in your own hands, even if you did not take one tiny thing. i can totally understand anyone's frustration in this situation, because the owners of that establishment are messing with a person's way of paying their bills and supporting themselves. but as mamaisalways right said, it is obviously better to handle this in a legal way. good luck to ya.

    drcarter, if i do recall, dont you already have several other criminal charges in your past?

  • clickclackity2 Oct 28, 2008

    Dr. Carter please be wise and not post any sort of involvement in anything or discuss the matter with anyone but your lawyer. And if you don't have one you should probably be reading some law books. In fact, if you have a profile you should probably delete it or at least cause doubt that you are who you say you are. I'm not a lawyer, but I feel your pain and frustration.

    Wow, this hits close to home with one of the posters getting the rap for taking the law into his own hands.

    Drcarter... I know how you feel, getting ripped off and all, but can't believe you'd show up at a place you used to work.

    I have been disgruntled once or twice and made a point NOT to talk to, visit, or discuss former employees and employers. If I were you, bro, I wouldn't even comment on here if you are facing any type of legal action against you. Just my 2 cents.

    I know that you are frustrated Dennis over not being paid, I am frustrated for you. But don't cause more trouble for yourself over this. Everything will work out :)
