ST. CHARLES    •    A Maryland Heights man is behind bars after police say he kicked in a door to a restaurant on Main Street, then launched furniture from a balcony at the officer who responded.

Cody M. Woods, 25, of the 3600 block of Bridget Lane was charged with attempted burglary and misdemeanor property damage and attempted assault of a law enforcement officer.

According to police, on Saturday Woods punched out a window and coach light, then kicked in the door of Alice’s Tea Room, 329 South Main.

When St. Charles Officer Jason Chappel got to the business, Woods picked up a wrought iron chair and hurled it from the second floor balcony, according to court documents. Chappel was able to dodge the chair and escape injury.

Bail has been set at $10,000 cash-only in the case.
