Police raided Gladys Knight‘s Georgian Chicken and Waffles restaurants, and not because they were hungry.

Knight’s son Shanga Hankerson is caught up in an investigation involving $1 million dollars, Fox News reports.

Georgia Department of Revenue Special Investigations Chief Jeff Mitchell told Fox the investigation is centered on Hankerson and not his mother or restaurant employees.

“Shanga’s accused of stealing over $650,000 in both sales and withholding tax,” Josh Waites, a special investigator, told WSB-TV. “(With) penalties and interest, it’s up to over $1 million owed.”

Police tried, and failed, to apprehend Hankerson.

It’s unfortunate that his mother’s name is taking a hit due to her son’s improper dealings.
