Denver police responded to a call saying a man had fallen through the ceiling of the Yard House restaurant on Tuesday night. Responders couldn’t find the man, but later they spotted him walking through the rafters. Then, police say, the man managed to trip a water main, which caused flooding in the restaurant and the Sheraton Hotel next door. After checking the ceiling area, police discovered that the man had been living there for some time. Upon further inspection, the man was found lodged in the restaurant wall. The fire department was called in to cut the man out. The suspect faces charges for the damage done to the restaurant. Read more:
