MADISON, WI – The Madison City Council voted Tuesday to revoke a late-night food vending license for a food cart after an employee allegedly pulled out an assault-style weapon during a confrontation in October.

Leia’s Lunchbox will have its license revoked for one year after employee Ellis Slaughter allegedly took a rifle out of the food cart and pointed it at a man to try to break up a fight Downtown in the early morning hours of Oct. 8. Slaughter, 31, has been charged with felony second-degree recklessly endangering safety.

While the food cart has lost its late-night license — which allows food and drinks to be served in certain Downtown areas from 9 p.m. to 4 a.m. — owner Leia Boers will retain a general street vending license and a license to serve food in the Capitol Square and State Street areas during the daytime.
