Co-Owner of Table 8 and 8 oz. Burger Arrested For Murder (Update)

New, 5 comments

In a sad, strange story, Josh Woodward, who co-owns the various Table 8 and 8 oz. Burger Bar restaurants in Los Angeles, New York City and Miami (which just declared bankruptcy this summer) with celebrity chef Govind Armstrong, has been arrested in Los Angeles and booked for the murder of his unborn child. According to the release on the LAPD website, he was arrested on Sunday, and earlier this month, the police completed an injury report involving the "the suspicious circumstances of a miscarriage" in the 30th 13th week of pregnancy. Woodward's bail has been set at $2 million.

Update: Police did not present their case to prosecutors today as planned. This means that Woodward will be released from jail, since the law says charges must be filed within 48 hours.
