If you're a restaurant owner, the last thing you want is for a cockroach to drop on a health inspector when he walks around your kitchen. But that's exactly what happened at one Arizona restaurant.
Matka Indian Cuisine had cans of insecticide in the kitchen, a live roach in the dish wash area and various foods left uncovered. The place is now on notice to clean up or could be closed down.
