Butt dial foils barbecue robbery… where police chief was having dinner


(WLEX) Two Kentucky men are behind bars after an accidental call to 911 revealed their robbery plans.

Danville police say Robert Bourne and David Grigsby were overheard discussing the possibility of robbing Brothers BBQ and Brewing, the same restaurant where Police Chief Tony Gray was eating dinner at the time.

Investigators were able to ping the cell phone’s location and discovered the men were actually in the restaurant’s parking lot at the time.

So far the pair have only been charged with public intoxication.

The 911 tape will be turned over to the prosecutor’s office to see if other charges will be filed.
