Employee Arrested After Causing Disturbance at Dacula Restaurant

The man was subsequently fired and issued a criminal trespass warning.

An employee of the Fish House Seafood Kitchen in Dacula was apparently determined not to go quietly.

Gwinnett County Police were called to the Old Fountain Road restaurant on March 9 after an employee, Tad V. Tran, 27, of Johns Creek, Ga., reportedly used profanity in front of customers and dumped a bucket of water in the floor in the front part of the restaurant.

“When I arrived, I heard the employee at the door telling customers that they had an emergency and would not be able to serve any more people today,” the officer wrote in the arrest report.

The restaurant owner informed the officer she wanted Tran arrested and removed from the building. The officer attempted to discuss the issue with Tran, but, according to the police report, Tran “refused to listen and continued to talk very loud.”

The officer noted that Tran began using profanity that could be heard by customers nearby. At that point, the restaurant owner terminated Tran’s employment and issued a criminal trespass warning.

As the officer attempted to explain the criminal trespass warning, Tran allegedly continued to use profanity and yell at the restaurant owner.

Despite the officer’s efforts to calm Tran and get him to leave the premises, Tran failed to comply. The officer subsequently placed Tran under arrest for disorderly conduct and transported him to the Gwinnett County Jail.

Tran was released later that evening on a $135 bond.

This is no surprise...family & I had been going to the restauraunt often...the food was really good...service was OK...no complaints until 1 night they were really busy...people were walking out the entire time...then the wheels came off...took 2 1/2 hours and when we did get the food, it was not good. When I mentioned it to Tran, the guy in this article, he came unglued..starting shouting at me and told me I better get my ass out. It is a shame. It is obvious the owners want to make excuses & blame everybody else rather than try & fix the problem.

She said she'd pay extra for the broccoli. Instead she was cussed out - No Substitutions! Says right there on the menu. Not on mine, my friend said. BS, the owner lady said - I wrote on all the menus myself. Well, you must have missed this one, my friend said. Get out, the owner lady said. And a few choice colorful adjectives that I had to explain to my kids later -> that their former teacher wasn't really what that mean lady was calling her. Crazy. Sounds like you can substitute now, for a slight upcharge. Wow, what a concept. Now, just add a semblance of customer service, and they may just make it as a real restaurant yet. Nah, I doubt it. Thanks for the entertainment, Fish House people. I liked that so much I used it. In the words of the lyrical prodigy Taylor Swift, "We, are never, ever, ever, ever, ever, going back there again..."

Hello,dacula its seems that there no issues with the fishhouse its you people that have nothing to do and believes of others who are the fishhouse competors. Sending in trouble makers and wanting to get free food the fishhouse is a family place with lots of regulars . And not a bar crowd like others rest in areas ,so someone got arrested this does not mean he or she a bad person everyone has there days and no one perfect by far so dacula it looks to me that customers are coming in to make troy ke for this great place try it for yourself , actually ,Tran is the best we like him alway outgoing and will do anything to make your experience great .don't judge by write up I wish the congressman would put stop to peopleing this kind of bs

If you like people eating off your plate(watched it happen) and dirty dishes (all of them)or to hear tons of profane words swapped between the staff visit the overpriced hole in the wall fish house.
