Diner Manager Posts Bail


Petrick, John, The Record (Bergen County, NJ)


The manager of the Tick Tock Diner charged last month with plotting to kill his wife's uncle -- a co-owner of the landmark Clifton restaurant -- walked out of the Passaic County Jail after posting $600,000 bail Tuesday.

Georgios Spyropoulos, 45, left jail six weeks to the day after he was arrested at the diner on Route 3 during the busy lunch hour and led out in handcuffs in front of other employees and customers.

Released from jail shortly after 1 p.m., Spyropoulos strode past a reporter without speaking and was picked up by a black van with tinted windows driven by a relative, jail officials said. Sheriff's deputies followed in their own vehicle, escorting the van to Clifton, where they planned to inspect Spyropoulos' home, a jail official said, declining to elaborate.

Spyropoulos will be kept under house arrest and will wear an ankle monitor while awaiting further court appearances, according to county officials. Under the conditions of his bond, Spyropoulos must surrender his passport and is barred from being in or near the Tick Tock Diner. He will be permitted to leave his residence for emergencies, medical visits, court and lawyer visits, and religious services.

Spyropoulos also is prohibited from having contact with the alleged victim, Alexandros Sgourdos, his wife or children.

A man who said he was a relative arrived at Spyropoulos' home ahead of him and declined to comment, as did a manager at the Tick Tock Diner.

To make bail, Spyropoulos put up property worth $400,000 as collateral, with the remaining $200,000 covered by a surety bond from a bail firm, county officials said.

His bail initially was set at his April 12 arraignment at $1 million by Passaic County state Superior Court Assignment Judge Donald J. Volkert Jr., who also had barred Spyropoulos from using his home as collateral and ruled that a hearing be held before him to determine the source of bail money.

The reduced bail, with its reworked terms and conditions, are set forth in an order signed May 15 by state Superior Court Judge Rudolph A. Filko in Paterson, with the consent of state Deputy Attorney General Lauren Scarpa on behalf of the prosecution. No explanation was provided for why a different judge was assigned to rule on bail. …
