CLINTON, Ind. (WTHI) - An Indianapolis man is behind bars on a warrant charge after a Clinton, Indiana restaurant employee received a phone call saying the man would "shoot up" the restaurant.

It happened Thursday morning at Hardee's.

An employee of the Hardees said an unknown person called telling them a man currently inside had made threats to "shoot up" the restaurant.

When officers arrived, they approached 51-year-old Robert Brown.
