Here’s a curious incident from the Villager’s police blotter: “Police arrested Edward Wilson, 27, on Fri., July 23, for burglary after an employee of The Spotted Pig, 314 W. 11th St., found him in the bar around 6:30 a.m. with three bottles of liquor. The suspect had entered the place around 6 a.m. through a basement hatch at sidewalk level, police said.” Seems like the definition of petty crime, though not quite as petty as sneaking American cheese onto the Roquefort burger. The blotter also mentions an instance of sexual abuse in the bathroom of GalleryBar.
