A dinner out for one local couple did not end well Wednesday.
According to Newtown Township Police, Nicholas Yiambilis, 41, of Bensalem and Laura Bumgardner, 27, of Newtown were arrested after an argument at the Sycamore Grill.
During the argument, “Bumgardner flipped a table over spilling wine, which splattered onto the carpet, blinds, walls and ceiling,” according to information from police.
The couple was asked to leave the restaurant around 10:40 p.m. That's when Yiambilis flagged down an officer who was on patrol on North Sycamore Street. When the officer pulled over, Bumgardner was “sitting on the step, yelling at Yiambilis,” police said.
As the officer was speaking with Yambilis, he detected a very strong odor of alcohol.
A witness told officers that the couple had caused damage inside the Sycamore Grill Restaurant. An employee of the Sycamore Grill confirmed to police that the two had been in the restaurant and began to argue when Bumgardner flipped the table.
Both Yambilis and Bumgardner were taken into custody and transported to police headquarters.
The owner of the Sycamore Grill told police that the cost to clean up the damage was in excess of $300.
Bumgardner was charged with public drunkenness and criminal mischief and Yiambilis was charged with with public drunkenness and disorderly conduct.
