A 36-year-old man faces a felon charge after he apparently wreaked havoc on the 16th-floor restaurant at Trump Tower on Monday evening.

Holdson Marcelin, 36, faces one felony count of criminal damage to property (between $10,000 to $100,000) after he was arrested in the 400 block of North Wabash on Monday at around 5:30 p.m., police spokesperson Michael Carroll told Chicagoist.

According to the Crime in Wrigleyville + Boystown blog, police said that Marcelin smashed glass, flipped over tables and poured red wine on the furnishings.

A police spokesperson did not confirm if the incident was captured on video, but according to CWB Chicago, police said surveillance cameras, and cell phones, recorded the frenzy.

Marcelin, of Philadelphia, was released on his own recognizance after appearing in bond court on Tuesday, according to the Tribune.

Sixteen, the much-acclaimed, Michelin-starred restaurant on the 16th floor of Trump Tower, was in the news last month after Twitter had a good point-and-laugh at the restaurant's "wound"-esque steak and suspect plating technique that was on display in a much-commented-upon tweet.
