CPD said that the situation was resolved early Tuesday morning, when the man left the business and drove away on his own. Police first closed the area around 9:30 p.m. Tuesday because the man was smashing doors and throwing bottles out of his business, Martha’s Rock n’ Roll Spirits. He returned Wednesday afternoon, and police monitored the situation without closing the area down until early evening.
