McFadden’s honcho arrested on sex abuse warrant

    McFadden’s has been in the maelstrom of some heavy allegations. Last year, a former employee brought accusations of racial profiling — a matter later settled out of court. And now there are new troubles.

    An Inquirer report claims that Harry Hayman, director of operations for the two McFadden’s bars in Philadelphia, has been arrested on a warrant from Arizona charging him with sexually abusing employees at bars he owned there.

    He was picked up Tuesday by Philly police and U.S. Marshals and was subsequently released after posting $15,000 bail. According to the Inquirer report, after employees of Hayman’s bar and grill in Glendale, Ariz., complained about his behavior in April, he “reportedly has refused all attempts by police or prosecutors to talk to him.”

    He is scheduled to appear at a hearing Feb. 18.
