Man Charged After Falling From Ceiling

A man was arrested after Storm Lake Police early Saturday morning were dispatched to Mo’s Bar to investigate a report a person had fallen from the ceiling.

Officers were told 27-year-old Jayme Espinosa Perez of Storm Lake had seen officers in the bar on a previous bar check and he thought there were warrants for his arrest so he proceeded into the restroom and crawled into the ceiling to hide. He fell through the ceiling back to the floor causing about 400-dollars damage.

Police located Espinosa Perez in the alley behind the bar and arrested him. Police determined there were no outstanding warrants for Espinosa Perez. He was charged with fourth-degree criminal mischief, a serious misdemeanor… and third-offense public intoxication, an aggravated misdemeanor. He was jailed on a three-thousand dollar bond.
