A Southern Tier man was jailed Sunday after “trashing” a tavern when the bartender there cut him off from alcohol, state police said.

Donald Paulson, 21, of Greenhurst, became unruly after a bartender refused to serve him, police said, striking the door before picking up a large flower planter urn and hurling it through the front window of the bar.

Some patrons were struck by glass from the 4 foot by 8 foot window, police said, although none was seriously injured.

Paulson was arrested and charged with criminal mischief, reckless endangerment and marijuana possession. He was arraigned in Ellery Town Court and remanded to Chautauqua County Jail.
