A customer at a Salem, Mass., bar spent the night trapped in a bathroom but told police in the morning he was "comfortable" and even offered to pay his tab.

    1. C'mon — what's not to like?

      Hoof it over to Facebook to join the weird news herd.

Laura Walton, the manager of Gulu-Gulu Cafe, says staff arrived at about 8 a.m. Saturday and heard noises coming from the bathroom area.

She tells The Salem News they called police because they thought someone was breaking in.

The 26-year-old man told police he got locked in the bathroom when the bar closed at 1 a.m. Saturday but spent a "comfortable" night there.

Walton says the man was apologetic, offered to pay his tab and quickly left.

Police did not release the man's name. They recommended that bar staff check the bathrooms before locking up in the future.
