In recent months, people have accused the "1 percent" of breaking the backs and bank accounts of the rest of the population -- but never their fingers. But now one giant of the investment banking world has allegedly broken a waiter's left ring finger, because he was angry that the server brought the check.

John Castle, the 76-year-old chairman and CEO of the private merchant bank, Castle Harlan, a former CEO of a leading investment bank, and director of Morton's Restaurant Group, the world's largest owner of upscale restaurants, was having dinner with his wife, Marianne, last Saturday at Club Colette, an exclusive Palm Beach private club that's not far from his home, a former Kennedy family compound.
