Naked man runs through Starbucks, eats pastries, gets shot by rubber bullets

http://blogging.la/archives/images/2006/09/starbucks-thumb.jpgEver the curious blogger, I asked the staff at the Whitley Heights Starbucks why one of their doors had been boarded up. Their eyes lit up, eager to share the tale.

Here’s what I put together:

At 5am this morning, a “drunken naked guy” used a sock full of rocks to shatter the glass on the front door, and stormed inside to eat “all the pastries”. Police responded and found the guy running around the store, resisting arrest. He had feathers in his hair and an American flag… although it wasn’t explained to me if this was a large or small flag, or where it was placed (or, perhaps, raised). The cops had to use rubber bullets and a beanbag shotgun to subdue him.

After relaying this tale, a Barista chimed in, “In spite of what happened, they still let me come to work today.” Oh, those Baristas can be so witty. All expressed disappointment that they haven’t been allowed to see the whole thing as captured on surveillance cameras.

  1. Reminds me of my favorite fancy chocolatier on Wilshire in West L.A. (“Chocolatt From Belgium”). He was boarded up last month from a 2nd break-in. The last robber stole two chocolate bars.

    Hey, I guess sometimes you just need to fill that sweet craving…

  2. My roommate works there…. the best part of this story is missing…

    They naked guy actually tried to SERVE the first customer of the day that walked up, offering him coffee and/or pastries as he ran around naked. Hahahahahah!
