REFUSED BEER, HE BREAKS UP TAVERN
Cleveland, Ohio... Mike "Ickey" Mesko wasn't fooling when he told the bartender at Rolfe's Tavern that he would close him up after being refused a beer. According to proprietor Jack Rolfe, Mesko came in near closing time and asked for a beer -- even though he had no money. Mesko got the beer, but when he asked for a re-fill, was refused. Mesko said: "if the police don't close you up, I will.....I'm going right through your front window." He did. He went to his home, go the truck, and returned. Taking careful aim, he backed his one-ton vehicle through the front window of the tavern.
