Police: Pinchers Crab Shack customer keyed restaurant employee’s car

Pinchers Crab Shack - Naples

1200 Fifth Avenue South, in Tin City at the foot of the Gordon River Bridge, Naples, FL

— A regular Pinchers Crab Shack customer didn’t take kindly to his service Sunday evening.

So he took it out on an employee’s car, Naples police said.

Leonard Gordon Hawkins, 73, of Knights Bridge Road, faces a criminal mischief charge after authorities say he keyed a staff member’s car at the Fifth Avenue South restaurant.

The victim told officers that somebody keyed her car one week ago, causing her to move a surveillance camera to the lot where she parks her car. The camera caught Hawkins in the act, and the victim and another employee confronted Hawkins in the lot, a police report said.

Hawkins reportedly swore at the victim and said she had insulted him before.

The victim said Hawkins caused $1,500 in damage and wants to press charges. The surveillance tape was turned over to investigators.
