19 Year-Old Drunk College Student Breaks into Business, Eats and Passes Out
This week, reports came out of South Bend, Indiana, of an unusual break-in at a downtown massage therapy business. A 19 year-old College student attending Notre Dame seemed to have made his way into the business by making a hole in the side of the therapy business. He managed to squeeze through the hole, get inside the business and destroy every item he could get his hands on throughout the building. Before passing out he microwaved some Hot Pockets and macaroni and cheese.
According to WSBT Channel 22 News reports, the whole incident caused thousands of dollars in damage. The drunk college student has been identified as Brian McCurren, of Mainsville. McCurren tried a number of ways to get inside Therapeutic Indulgence late Saturday Evening or early Sunday morning before throwing a 100-pound flower pot through the stained glass portion of the front door.
After smashing a hole big enough for him to crawl through, he found himself inside the breezeway, unfortunately, he found a hammer and started to dig his way through the drywall and into the main part of the building.
The owner of Therapeutic Indulgence, Sara Ros Frazier, told WNDU News, “He went straight into the kitchen and he went through half a box of Hot Pockets. Macaroni and cheese was warming up in an antique style oven and then he passed out eating (ice cream) Drumsticks on a table where the police found him.” Because he was passed out, McCurren didn’t hear the fire alarm when the mac and cheese started to smoke inside the oven. Frazier told WBND ABC 57 that, “The police actually pulled out and threw it in the sink because it was so toasted, but he was sleeping through the firm alarm and everything. He could have burned the house down. Thankfully we had someone coming in here.”
According to WNDU, McCurren was still drunk by the time police arrived at 10 AM Sunday morning. In a standard breath test McCurren blew a .106. Frazier is beyond anger over the thousands of dollars in damage, postponed appointments and the lack of regret McCurren seemed to show. She told the station, “What really burned me the most was he wasn’t apologetic when he came down the stairs. You would think, even if you were that out of it when you come down, you’re coming down in cuffs… but he just had a smile on his face.
McCurren was arrested and charged with burglary, vandalism, and underage drinking. WBND states he told the police he had also been smoking synthetic marijuana.
