Kemah restaurant accused of false imprisonment
A woman is suing over claims she was wrongly arrested as a guest at a Kemah-area hotel and restaurant.
Michel Monique Burrage and her family filed a false imprisonment lawsuit on Thursday, May 31 in the Harris County District Court against Kemah-area Landry's Seafood House and the Boardwalk Inn.
Burrage says on June 4, 2010, a Landry's Seafood House security guard, without reason, grabbed her hand, twisted it behind her back, shoved her face down on a lobby couch and called police to have her incarcerated in the local jail. According to the brief, the arrest occurred in the hotel lobby after a Landry's security guard falsely accused her of feeding the birds while dining at the Seafood House.
The suit alleges Kemah attorneys dismissed the charges Landry's filed against her.
Burrage is seeking attorney's fees, damages and court costs. She is being represented in the case by Houston attorney Donna Roth.
