A man decided to stay well-past closing time at an Old Sacramento bar, tripping the alarm when he stumbled awake for a middle-of-the-night snack.
Tuesday night, cops say Calvin Hubbard snuck into the women’s restroom at the Coconut Grove Sports Bar and Grill along J Street. He hid there until the bar closed for the night.
The owner of the Coconut Grove, Mateo Corpuz, told FOX40 his employees had escorted Hubbard out of the bar earlier Tuesday night, but apparently he found his way back in.
After everyone had left, Hubbard allegedly helped himself to the alcohol behind the bar. Cops say he drank heavily and fell asleep.
Corpuz told FOX40 when Hubbard woke up early Wednesday morning, he stumbled around the closed bar and found his way to the freezer for some ice cream. There is a burglar alarm on the bar’s fridge and freezer.
After eating, Hubbard fell back asleep on an employee couch. That’s where Corpuz and cops found him sleeping with his shoes off around 9 a.m.
Hubbard was arrested for burglary.
Corpuz says Hubbard drank about a half a bottle of Patron, half a bottle of Crown Royal and half a bottle of 12-year-old Scotch.
No word on how much it will cost to replace the booze, or how much damage Hubbard did to the bar.
