(CMR) Country and Western Bar & Restaurant was destroyed early Saturday morning after 3 a.m. when a man fell asleep in the DJ booth after-hours and awoke to discover he was locked inside.
He was nabbed because the security alarm was on and he was unable to come out.
The man stayed back after a busy night for the bar and managed to elude security guards before they secured the building. There was a birthday partier earlier in the evening and perhaps it provided the perfect cover for the man; who was not a guest at the evening's event.
It was after the guard and owners left that the culprit woke up to discover his unusual predicament. When he attempted to leave he realized that the building hard been armed. Sources indicate that when he called the owner he did not believe him. It was at that time that he decided to destroy the bar out of frustration.
When the owner arrived to discover him the police was called to the property and he was arrested around 5:00 a.m.
The man was said to have appeared in court today but is still in police custody. We understand that the owner is trying to quickly repair the damage so that he can re-open.
