One man, Jermaine, pulled into the parking lot for the IHOP on Saturday afternoon, only to find it closed. He was not surprised about the incident.

“I’m not surprised that something would happen at 3 o’clock in the morning, because after 3, that’s when all the clubs are closing; everybody comes here to eat,” he said.

He said some of the people coming in from the clubs can get rowdy and impatient.
