Centerplates announces the resignation of Hague, after he was caught on video kicking a friend’s dog in an elevator in a Vancouver apartment building. Hague may face criminal charges in Vancouver from the incident. Centerplate’s board chairman Joe O’Donnell:
We want to reiterate that we do not condone nor would we ever overlook the abuse of animals. Following an extended review of the incident involving Mr. Hague, I’d like to apologize for the distress that this situation has caused to so many; but also thank our employees, clients, and guests who expressed their feelings about this incident. Their voices helped us to frame our deliberations during this very unusual and unfortunate set of circumstances.
