Officers responded to the Budweiser Brewery after reports of an altercation between the facility’s security officer and a suspect, St. Louis police said. Weisser had entered a secure area of the brewery and was asked to leave by security, police said.

Weisser was taken into custody after resisting arrest and was issued a summons for trespassing in the first degree and for resisting arrest.

Weisser appears to have a history of trespassing. He was caught trespassing at a local Exxon facility in 2014, according to local media. Weisser allegedly turned himself in a few days later after investigators found evidence that linked him to the scene. Documents show that was charged with burglary in the second degree.
