WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY)-- Former State Senator Julia Boseman is back in the spotlight after an incident Saturday night at a Monkey Junction restaurant.

The New Hanover County Sheriff's Office said deputies responded to an assault call at the Tengu Japanese Steakhouse Saturday night. When they got there they found out it involved Julia Boseman.

Tengu restaurant owner Tom Lin says the argument started over the bill.

"They didn't want to pay and they were very rude with the other servers," said Lin. "I tried to call 911 and then Julia Boseman punched me."

Despite Lin's allegation, the Sheriff's Office says when deputies arrived both Lin and Boseman said there was no assault. They say alcohol did not play a factor.

Lin says nothing like this has ever happened in his restaurant.

"I'm very upset, you know. I don't know the lady, who she was before, then...I'm very upset," said Lin. "I tell them and they come in and punch me on my back. That's very bad."

Lin says he doesn't plan on pressing any assault charges against Boseman. All he wanted her to do was simply pay her bill, which eventually she did.

WWAY called Julia Boseman Sunday afternoon to ask for comment about the incident. Boseman said she did not know what we were talking about.

I don't see it

The reporter didn't dig very deep. Why is this newsworthy? What about the bill didn't Ms. Boseman like? Why did the owner report an assault and then say it never happened? Without some essential facts, it's hard to determine what merited this story. This seems to be the standard for newspaper journalism these days. Just reprint or summarize the police report (or PR release, as the situation merits)and let it go at that. What happened to who, what, when, where, why, and how come?

At least it was local

At least this was a local story instead of another national story copied from one of the wire services. I get tired of the local, news, outlets filling their web pages with stories that are not local. Even though this was not very interesting (to me), I appreciate it being, origional ond local.

Catlin and Davis are the loonies!

You miss the point. The folks you attack may have personal issues but the real embarrassment to our town are the likes of Davis and little Ricky Catlin- along with their buddy sandy best. Lets look at their conduct and actions before you attack julia and others. When it comesw to poor judgment a hard and objective look at those phonies is a lot more telling than with others. If you are worried about shaming our town look at Teddy and Ricky.

Nice try dimwit on

Nice try dimwit on redirecting. No facts nor examples, just accusations; like all typical liberals. What is it like knowing your freeloading socialist lifestyle is dying. And false accusations cannot stop it?

Resturant

The last (first) time I visited this resturant, I got up to leave after waiting for my food for 70 minutes. When I asked the server about my meal she replied, 'Oh, the cook has not gotten around to that yet" (There were only three tables of customers in the entire restaurant). They demanded we pay for our drinks (an ice tea and water) before we left. When presented with the ($8.00) bill, I walked out, never to return.

Wilmington Observer

Enough...

Aren't her 15 minutes of fame up yet? And why are you quoting the owner, who admits he lied to the police?
She's no longer a public figure in my eyes...unless she did something that merited her arrest or an assault charge, then, "Move on - there's nothing to see here!" Cops are called out to incidents all the time and the perps don't get a "Breaking News" banner on their stories. No arrests, no charges, no video...nothing but heresay from one of the parties, who obviously lied to the sheriff's department about being struck, but then told the television station? Lemme guess, he's the one who called...yeah, not it all makes sense...

Julia vs. Berger

Whacko of the year !! Does it go to Julia Bozeman or Brian Berger?
Why is Wilmington being plagued with all these lunatics and idiotic people? These crazed maniacs are so embarrassing to Wilmington and giving us a bad name. Why is it that they can act normal enough to get elected and then after election day all hell breaks loose? This is getting more and more humiliating by the year.

Julia Boseman and restaurant incident at Monkey Junction

Please tell me that some customer in that restaurant used their telephone to record this incident so Julia Boseman can be caught lying. I mean, come on. The police would not respond to an incident at this restaurant if SOMETHING didn't happen. Who is Boseman and Lin trying to fool...okay I can see Lin's point...bad for business....but where Boseman is concerned there is no excuse for this type of behavior. She's not in Raleigh anymore and people in New Hanover County are not going to kiss her butt......

"Police" response

Law enforcement officers don't respond because "something happened". Law enforcement responds because someone summons them (usually by dialing 911) and then they conduct a preliminary investigation to determine if "something happened".

ILM OB.

ACCORDING TO THE STORY, MR LIN DID CALL 911, HENCE, LAW ENFORCEMENT RESPONDED. MR LIN TOLD THE STORY, THEN DENIED IT. I,V BEEN TO TENGU.IT DIDN'T TAKUS THAT LONG TO GET SERVED. HAVE YOU EVER SEEN THE BIG PILE OF FOOD THE FIX (FOR WHAT WE ORDERED). I,M SURE ITS NOT AS MUCH ALL THE TIME DEPENDING ON WHAT YOU ORDER.

There's a line you don't cross

When you do cross it, all considerations of gender fall by the wayside, ladies. If Bozo-ette hit Lin, he should have customized her kisser with a few well-placed punches to teach her some manners.
