CA Bar Owner Thrown in Jail for Serving Burgers Outdoors
Twenty-year old Lucas Lepejian runs his father’s “Tinhorn Flats” burger and bar joint in Burbank. When he refused to close his outdoor dining deck in November, the Burbank city council and police sprang into action, first fining him, then padlocking his doors, and ultimately jailing him. Upon getting out of jail, he promptly reopened the deck. He was arrested again, reopened again, and jailed a third time! Today, while other California restaurants are permitted to be open, his remains shuttered.
