Tick Dock Diner is involved in a crazy family murder plot, our friends at Daily Intel report. Georgios Spyropoulos, the manager of Tick Tock’s New Jersey location, hired an undercover cop (oops!) to kill his uncle, a manager at the Manhattan outpost. It was a financially motived move so that Spyropoulos could take over the business; apparently, he even married into the family with this plan in mind. Spyropoulos got busted while chatting with customers at the Tick Tock in Clifton, and is being charged with conspiracy to commit murder, attempt to commit murder, and weapons possession. Bail is $1 million. In the wise words of Tony Soprano: “You don’t shit where you eat. And you really don’t shit where I eat.” [Daily Intelligencer, NYP]
