One of Spain's leading female chefs has been arrested for allegedly selling toxic shellfish in her restaurant.
Toni Vicente, the owner of a Michelen starred restaurant in Santiago de Compostela, has been detained along with nine others for allegedly selling produce from a contaminated river.
The arrests followed a two-month police investigation into the alleged illegal fishing and marketing of banned shellfish.
Scallops sold in the restaurant, widely considered one of the best in Galicia, in the north of the country, were allegedly illegally harvested from Ferrol's busy estuary.

This has been in the national and the local news the last few days as well. There is a small mistake in the article in the link above, she was actually arrested for buying this toxic shellfish (not selling). She was on local tv last night saying that "This has been a big misunderstanding"... she was arrested while she was exchanging money for the shellfish.

Toñi Vicente (has one Michelin star in her Santiago restaurant).

Let's see how long that star stays :?
