Lisa Vanderpump’s West Hollywood hotspot PUMP was the scene of an attempted break-in on Sunday, May 24. According to TMZ, police arrived at the famous restaurant after receiving several phone calls reporting a possible burglary in process.
As TMZ reports, eyewitnesses spotted a man wearing a blue face mask and a backpack attempting to cut the lock on the eatery’s main gate with a pair of shears. After three bystanders witnessed the suspicious activity and called the authorities, several police units and a helicopter arrived on the scene.
“Someone tried to break a lock,” a representative from the LA County Sherriff’s West Hollywood division told Page Six. “They didn’t get in and the person was arrested for something not related [to the attempted break in].”
Lisa and husband, Ken Todd, were reportedly not on the premises at the time of the incident. The restaurant is currently closed, per Los Angeles’ ongoing stay at home order.
This isn’t the first time this year that PUMP has been at the center of an incident involving law enforcement. In January, a driver crashed a Ferrari into the patio area and front part of the building, smashing a window. "No. We are not a Drive-Thru. Thank God no one was hurt,” Lisa wrote on Twitter at the time.
