Favaloros One

A Pacific Grove restaurant owner was arrested on suspicion of battery following a Thanksgiving Day fracas at his business, according to police.

Police were called to Favaloro’s Italian-American Restaurant, 542 Lighthouse Ave., at 10:30 p.m. Thursday by two passers-by who told them they heard yelling coming from the restaurant and saw a man holding and choking a woman, said police Lt. Tom Uretsky.

Officers arrived and were told by a 70-year-old woman who works at the restaurant that Anthony Favaloro, 64, choked her after they argued.

The woman’s name was withheld because the incident is considered a case of domestic violence.

Although she refused medical attention, Uretsky said, officers noted significant redness and bruising on the woman’s neck, consistent with the complaint.

I’d think twice before complaining about the food . .
