    Restauraunter allegedly serves knuckle sandwich - By Drake Bearden, News of Delaware County, PA
    Wells testified that on April 4 he approached 204 Baltimore Pike to ask about the carpentry work being done on the new restaurant.

    "I represent carpenters for the area and I want to make sure area standards are upheld," Wells testified he said to the men working at the site.

    If the area standards were not met the carpenter's union would be forced to encourage their members not to attend the new establishment Wells testified he said to the men. "We don't support people who don't support the area."

    There were about four or five men working at the site, Wells testified, and Senatore allegedly came from behind the counter and confronted Wells.
