SARASOTA, Fla. - A Suncoast restaurant that has recently had problems with the county and nearby residents was hit with graffiti over the weekend.

Someone wrote the words "pay us" on the sign for Bob’s Boathouse restaurant on South Tamiami Trail.

Recently Bob's Boathouse was granted a 30-day temporary certificate of occupancy after paying $77,000 in utility fees it owed the county. Prior to that, residents living near the restaurant complained the live music being played there, was too loud.

Also former employees have complained they are owed money they were never paid by the owner.
