WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. — A Zionsville man was arrested after police say he broke a window at a West Lafayette bar near Purdue University’s campus.
West Lafayette police responded to Harry’s Chocolate Shop shortly after 2 a.m. Friday for a report of a person who broke a window.
A Harry’s employee told police a customer was refused service because he was intoxicated and was asked to leave. Police say the customer, identified as 21-year-old John Kester, returned to the bar but was denied entry.
According to police, Kester then went to the side of the building, pulled back a protective screen and reportedly broke one of the windows and took off.
A Purdue University police officer found Kester and arrested him.
He’s been charged with criminal mischief and resisting law enforcement.
It’s unknown if Kester is a Purdue student. A search of his name in the Purdue directory did not provide any hits.
