Theft charges filed in family feud over Ohio hot dog eatery made famous on TV's 'M.A.S.H.'
TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) ' The grandson of the founder of an Ohio hot dog diner made famous on TV's "M.A.S.H." has been charged with stealing from the family business.
A grand jury on Wednesday indicted executive vice president Tony Packo III and another company official. They're accused of stealing more than $100,000 from the business that's based in Toledo.
Multiple media outlets report the charges stem from a yearlong family battle over control of Tony Packo's.
A private restaurant group backed by Tony Packo Jr. and his son in October won the bidding for the restaurant chain, whose hot dog sauce is sold nationwide.
The dispute grew after a relative of the Packos began questioning them about company spending.
A message seeking comment was left at the home of Tony Packo III on Wednesday.
