Weisser, 19, was taken into custody after allegedly driving his car into the brewery’s gates and entering the site, according to reports.

Police said Weisser abandoned his car after the crash at about 6:48pm and broke into a secure area of the brewery, where he struggled with security who had told him to leave, St Louis Today reports.

Weisser was arrested for first degree trespassing and resisting arrest.

In July, Weisser was handed a five-year suspended sentence for a convenience store break-in in August 2014.
