Case continued

The pre-trial conference for Andrew Stopper, a Boulder City restaurant owner, has been continued until April 16 at 3 p.m.

Stopper is facing multiple charges, including battery and assault, stemming from allegations made by a former female employee.

In the complaint, received by the court May 3, he is accused of four misdemeanors: battery, assault, harassment and coercion. It alleges that at the restaurant, he slapped the woman on the buttocks, rubbed her hand, put his arm around her, kissed her on the head and grabbed her with both hands.

The complaint also states that he swung a knife back and forth like a baseball bat while giving her an unfriendly stare.

Stopper owns Anthony’s on the Parkway, 1312 Boulder City Parkway, Suite D. The restaurant was formerly called Anthony’s Trattoria.

Water crucial to good health

Drinking enough water every day is good for overall health. As plain drinking water has zero calories, it can also help with managing body weight and reducing caloric intake when substituted for drinks with calories, like regular soda. Drinking water can prevent dehydration, a condition that can cause unclear thinking, result in mood change and cause your body to overheat or lead to constipation and kidney stones.
