Misunderstanding leads to SWAT situation at Clear Lake Bar

Police say a SWAT Team situation has ended without incident at a Clear Lake Bar.  Officers responded to a burglary of a Clear Lake bar, Davenport Lounge on the 1200 block of Clear Lake city Boulevard near Crescent Landing Drive. When they arrived, officers couldn't get anyone to come to the door, and then called in a SWAT team.

After further investigation, police said that a customer had walked into the bar and told everybody to "Get Out!" It was apparently a joke, but one patron took it seriously, left the bar and then called 911. When police arrived, the patrons did not believe they were cops. Several people were then taken into custody for public intoxication.
