You can’t make this news up…
Police were called last week to Mullets Sports Bar & Restaurant in Homer Glen to deal with an angry customer who allegedly shattered a framed photo of A.C. Slater, a fictional, mullet-wearing jock played by Mario Lopez in the 1990s television series “Saved by the Bell.”
“I just don’t like Slater,” the man reportedly told the owner after allegedly yanking the photo from its place of pride above a urinal and smashing it on the floor. The owner told police the bathroom door also was damaged.
The man left after another person gave the bar owner $11 for the broken frame, according to a Will County sheriff’s police account. A message left Wednesday for the bar owner wasn’t returned.
A sad day for Mullets’ wall of fame, for sure.
