A homeless man who got locked in a restroom ended up getting arrested.

Around 10 a.m. Tuesday morning, the police and the fire department were called to the old Johnny’s Good Eats restaurant at 5614 McArdle near Staples Street.

When they arrived, they found a 38-year old homeless man had locked himself in the bathroom.

The fire department had to bust through the door to get him out. Now, the business owners who are renovating the building are not happy. They’re going to have to pay to repair the door and the ceiling.

They say for the past four years, they’ve had trouble with transients and drug addicts getting inside their restaurant.

Meanwhile, the 38-year old man who was arrested will be charged with criminal trespassing.
