Arrest made in the death of Taian "Andrew" Tian, manager of New Dynasty restaurant

Sarasota County Sheriff Tom Knight is expected to announce the arrest of a man responsible for the death of New Dynasty restaurant manager Taian "Andrew" Tian.

Tian died July 19, five days after a brutal beating near the New Dynasty Chinese Buffet at 6131 S. Tamiami Trail. According to employees and eyewitnesses, Tian had followed three men out of the restaurant after they failed to pay for their meal. Tian was found in the driveway of a nearby business unconscious and with severe head trauma.

Tian was a civil engineer from China who came over to "give his son a better life." His son is a pharmaceuticals student in Gainesville.
