The former Genoa Food Co. manager received a ticket after flooding the restaurant’s kitchen and bar at the end of his last day of work there, according to the Lancaster County Sheriff.
Terry Wagner said the 27-year-old manager blocked the drains and opened the kitchen taps before leaving work for the last time on Saturday evening.
By the time employees arrived the next day at Malcolm’s Restaurant, 4 inches of standing water covered the kitchen and water had made its way to the bar, Wagner said.
In total, the incident caused at least $280 in damage, Wagner said, but operators are still monitoring the business.
The 27-year-old was cited for criminal mischief.
Wagner said he quit his job due to disagreements with the owner.
