ST. LOUIS • In a struggle between Bud Weisser and Budweiser, the beer company seems to have won.
Bud A. Weisser, 19, received summonses from police Thursday accusing him of first-degree trespassing and resisting arrest after he allegedly entered the Anheuser-Busch brewery property at 9th and Arsenal Streets, where the "King of Beers" is produced.
Police said Weisser abandoned his car after a crash about 6:48 p.m. and hopped the fence into a secure area of the brewery, where he struggled with security officers who had asked him to leave.
Weisser pleaded guilty in July of second-degree burglary in connection with a break-in Aug. 21, 2014, at a convenience store in the 900 block of Lemay Ferry Road in south St. Louis County. A judge ordered him to prison for five years, but suspended execution of that sentence if he meets conditions.
Court documents alleged that Weisser, of the 200 block of Espenschied Street in St. Louis, broke into the store to steal but there was no indication if he took anything.
