HR Strange But True!
June 10, 2003

A family's complaint about the service they received from a waiter at a Sizzler restaurant in Norco, Calif., ended with the waiter being arrested later that night on charges that he vandalized the family's home, according to the Los Angeles Times.

The Times, citing police and the family as its sources, reports that waiter Jonathan Voeltner, 20, had his 17-year-old girlfriend followed the family home when it left the restaurant. Later that night, Voeltner, his girlfriend, and his 17-year-old brother bought syrup, eggs, flour, toilet paper and other items at a supermarket. They went to the home, unrolled the toilet paper onto a pine tree, smashed eggs against the house, crushed the eggs on a mailbox - inside and out - and then covered it in syrup and sealed it with duct tape. The other food items were tossed about.

The family called police, who found the trio hanging around nearby.

Wayne Keller told the Times that his family's dispute with Voeltner began when Voeltner insisted that Keller's wife, Darlene, could not have vegetables with her steak dinner. They called for the manager, who apologized for the waiter's behavior and cooked Darlene Keller a big plate of broccoli and cauliflower, according to the Times. But apparently, that did not settle things for Voeltner. After the arrests, the Kellers said they recognized Voeltner's girlfriend as someone who had been sitting in a booth near them at the Sizzler. "At one point, the waiter whispered something to her," Wayne Keller said.
