SAY WHAT! Rich Diner Breaks Waiter's Finger For Bad Service

HUFFINGTONPOST.COM - Sometimes, restaurant service is so bad that certain HuffPost Food editors have voiced the determination to strangle their waiters, but we've never actually done it. Neither has "76-year-old Palm Beach plutocrat" John Castle. Instead, he responded to bad service by breaking his waiter's finger.

According to the Palm Beach Daily News, Castle and his wife Marianne were dining at local institution Club Collette when a server made the grievous mistake of bringing a bill to their table, allegedly at Mrs. Castle's request. (Club Colette members are allowed to charge bills to their accounts without having bills delivered to their tables.) Castle became enraged and grabbed the 57-year-old waiter's hand, twisting it until the pain was excruciating. The waiter later went to the doctor and had his hand X-rayed; his left ring finger was broken. Eater has the full police report.

Palm Beach police have said they're investigating the incident but have not yet uncovered the full story. Castle has denied requests for comment by media sources.

File this one under "food story of the day most resembling a gristly plot detail from Game Of Thrones: Season Two." Castle's last name even sounds Westeros-appropriate!
