A juvenile allegedly pulled a fire alarm during Wild Leap Brew Co.’s Thanksgiving Eve event Wednesday night, causing more than 150 people to evacuate the building.

According to the police report, the LaGrange Police Department responded to the brewery around 11 p.m. Brewery employees told police that four juveniles came in and sat down at a table inside. According to the report, the juveniles began to hide their faces and were obviously too young to be inside a brewery.

One of the owners of the brewery asked that the juveniles leave since they were not of drinking age and did not have their ID on them. When asked, the juveniles left the business but on their way out, one of them allegedly pulled the fire alarm. Officers checked the area, but did not find the juveniles.
