Leon's Lounge Closes Abruptly...Sort of

The scene outside Leon's about an hour ago. Note HPD officer in the left doorway and "Private Property" sign on the right door.
What should we come across on our way to work this morning but two HPD patrol cars and a U-Haul truck parked in front of Leon's Lounge, and the staff removing furniture from the wizened Midtown bar as fast as they could carry it?

Owner Pete Mitchell, who was standing outside with his wife, Vera, and a couple of Leon's employees, said his lease was up at the end of the month anyway, but it appears his landlord forced his hand. She was also there, but did not seem like she was in the mood to be interviewed. The last thing we heard was one of the officers asking Mitchell, "Do you have an attorney"?

Mitchell said he and his landlord were constantly arguing, particularly about the condition of the old building. The sewer line, which Mitchell said he thought it would take "massive" repairs to fix, was a principal sticking point. Even the deck out front, which Mitchell installed a few years ago, was being dismantled piece by piece. Although the situation looked like it arose out of nowhere, Mitchell said it was nothing new -- that he had been considering moving on for the better part of a year.
