The restaurant best known as Gladys Knight’s Chicken & Waffles has had another run-in with the Georgia Department of Revenue, with agents shutting down the restaurant Thursday.
Shanga Hankerson, the restaurant’s owner and Gladys Knight’s son, told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution there were some “tax-related issues” he had to get paid before the business license could be reinstated.
Investigators say Hankerson owes sales tax, but has not paid all of it, according to Channel 2 Action News.
In June, Hankerson was arrested on felony theft charges after Department of Revenue agents said he failed to turn over taxes he collected. His employees told investigators he used the money for sex parties and marijuana, an Atlanta Journal-Constitution investigation found.
The restaurant was briefly shut down earlier this month when it failed a health inspection, but quickly passed a re-inspection and reopened.Shanga is in the process of changing the name and removing Gladys Knight memorabilia from the premises.
