Ryan Long’s dreams of opening his Michigan brewing business may be dashed after a group of teen vandals left $200,000 in damages on the construction site.
The DirtBag Brewing Company owner told “Fox & Friends First” Friday he fears there will be “zero accountability” for the 13-year-olds accused of destroying the property he planned to open this summer.
“They showed up three days in a row last Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday,” Long began. “They broke every window, every overhead door, over 100 windows that were destroyed, ransacked the building. They destroyed a sky track that was in the building. They removed the oil cap, the hydraulic lines, they filled everything full of sand. They destroyed a 15-passenger van that we had there… to move things around and get things done. And completely, you know, put a huge setback on the building and the project to move forward.”
The owner described the attack on the construction site as “very malicious and violent.”
Long said that he does not know the vandals or their parents and he is not sure why they did what they did to his dream buisness.
He told Fox News, “I’ve spent the last seven to 10 years, seven years in the building process… I had saved, saved my money, saved materials, and put everything into this building. It’s all self-funded. It’s a labor of love.”
“I’ve exhausted everything in this. This is my savings, my retirement, you know, we planned on moving forward this summer and in getting things at least a soft opening available for the weekend. But at this point, it’s you know, it’s not even recoverable. We were uninsured due to prior thefts and vandalism… at this point it’s a total loss for me,” Long added.
