A former Lonesome Dove employee was really not happy about being let go last winter, so she returned to the Tim Love-run restaurant and spray painted the door with a giant penis on January 1, 2016, as noted by KEYE. The news channel reported:
According to an affidavit, the drawing was approximately five feet high. Police say the manager checked the surveillance video and discovered the vandalism took place at 6:05 a.m. on January 1. He also recognized the the vandal as 27-year-old Carly Lauren Testa, a former employee who had recently been fired.
Testa caused $5,400 worth of damages to the door and received a state felony criminal mischief charge.
Love opened the Austin branch of his restaurant last June. He'll be back at this year's Austin Food & Wine Festival with his two-day massive grilling demonstrations. He also runs several restaurants in Texas, as well as two in Knoxville, Tennessee.
