Deer runs through Price Hill eatery

        Price Hill Chili had an unexpected late lunch guest Monday afternoon — a deer that smashed through the front window.

        The deer crossed busy Glenway Avenue before crashing through the 6-by-8-foot window next to two customers and two employees about 2:30 p.m.

        “He knocked a table over and came running on through,” said manager Steve Beltsos. “He ran through the whole restaurant. He ran from one end to the other. I let it out the back door. He jumped a 6-foot fence.”

        About 15 employees and customers were in the restaurant at 4920 Glenway Ave. at the time.

        “They were standing on booths,” Mr. Beltsos said. “Nobody had any time to panic. It was more of a shock.”

        There were no injuries to anyone in the restaurant. The deer appeared to be bleeding slightly, Mr. Beltsos said.

        The deer episode was a first for Price Hill Chili. “I've never seen one on Glenway, much less come through the front window,” the manager said.

        The timing couldn't have been better, though. Economy Glass & Window Co. employees were at the restaurant Monday afternoon hanging mirrors, so Mr. Beltsos ordered up one plate glass window — for here.
