HOUSTON, TX – Police have arrested a man for allegedly barricading a populated bar’s exit and then setting the bar on fire.

On the night of April 19, 30-year-old Jaime Mata and his buddy, known only as “Pepe,” were kicked out of an East Houston nightclub, the East End Bar, for fighting with staff.

Apparently they felt that if they weren’t to be allowed a full night’s fun, no one else should be either. Witnesses state that as the pair were being ejected, Mata called out the subtle warning, “This place is gonna burn!”

Mata and Co. left and fetched some gasoline from a nearby Conoco station. They then returned to the bar where, as is clearly seen in surveillance video, a shirtless man with ‘Mata’ emblazoned on his back (and tits bigger than mine) accompanied by an equally shirtless friend, closes the burglar bars over the front door of the bar. He then wedges a large piece of wood between the burglar gate and the ground, effectively jamming it closed.

Further video shows the men rounding the building and pouring the gasoline along the bar’s back wall and rear exit, then lighting it. Lucky for patrons and staff, the building was equipped with a third door and everyone was able to safely evacuate.

Mata waited until April 28 to surrender himself to police, and has now been charged with arson.  On April 30, a judge raised his bond from $50,000 to $100,000 and has ordered Mata to stay at least 100 yards from the bar (which is now closed). No word on whether or not Mata’s cohort has been charged, or even located.

    what a shitstain fucker didn’t care who he would have killed 

  • Sam

    What’s the point of ordering him to stay away from a closed, burned-down bar?

  • malq

    This gives me a brainstorm for my next family reunion.

  • Sam

    Arson?? Just arson??? Why not attempted murder, or even terrorism – since this is EXACTLY the kind of thing you’d see misguided afterlife-hymen-searchers doing. If the third door hadn’t been there the whole club would have perished. Douchebag moobhead.
    Thank goodness no-one was hurt or even killed.

  • JohnQknowitall

    If I can’t [fill in the blank], then no one else can either. Selfish fucks.

    Why is he not charged with attempted murder? Was the fire extensive enough to destroy the bar or just a decision by the bar’s owners?

  • OutOfBubbleGum

    I told you to first buy Hersey Chocolate bars, graham crackers, and some marshmallows before buying gasoline. 
    Dam, how are we supposed to have a campfire with just gasoline?  Didn’t bald, hairless Girl Scouts teacher you anything?

  • Was anyone at all hurt at the bar during this? That is my question. Also agreeing with the masses, this should totally be an attempted murder, not only did he ignite the building, he tried to stop their exit so this is more than just property damage! People like this are really fucking ignorant, and unsafe walking among us.

  • JGo555

    Ya’ll know his last name means “KILL” in Spanish right?

  • JGo555

    I assume this asshole tends to be like this with women: “if I can’t have you then no one can”.

    And comparison pics of tits or it didn’t happen!

  • reapre

    If I remember right, “terrorism” requires the intent to strike fear for political, religious, or other similar reasons…just being a douchey-McDoucherton doesn’t qualify you.

    I agree with the attempted murder, of ALL bar goers at that bar, when they were in there.

  • sugarpie

    All this drama makes Jaime a “bitch”. 

  • Zazen

    This is totally attempted murder–because this is the result of success:

  • This is the first time I see someone on this website that I know (knew) I went to middle school with this retard. And I agree getting charged with Arson is not nearly enough

  • Texas Ranger

    I cannot tell a lie Ginny Leigh…I watched the survelliance video to only gauge how big YOUR tits may be. Nice, I might add…*wink* , *wink*.. Oh yeah, there was a fire in there too.

  • Tits and fire, who could ask for more?

  • onlyme356

    This is why you should have a no white t shirt and bald head policy to enter a club.

  • Texas Ranger

    beer in the mix of those two is always a good addition.

  • I’m a whiskey girl, beer is terrible.

  • Texas Ranger

    Hush your mouth.

  • Lena60

    Put the lil gang bangers in prison for life.He is just a waste of tatooed skin anyways.

  • pikeman

    Have you ever noticed many of these Chicano gang banger types always have this obscure sidekick only known as “Pepe” or “Chico” or “Pedro”?

    Yeah we caught him but his obscure sidekick only known as “Pepe” got away.

  • pikeman

    Way to go, tattooing your name on your back and walking around with your shirt off when you burn down a bar, dumbfuck!

    There’s this idiot in the fucked up town I recently moved to with “Webster” (his last name) tattooed in big letters across his back. He hangs out with a black dude, yet is a total skinhead racist. They were going to beat my friend up one night because he dresses like a punker, so I called Webster on being a skinhead racist and he sucker punched me, so I used my boxing on him. This town I moved to is full of a bunch of douchebag wannabe gangbangers just like these idiots that burned down the bar. This kind of shit is always happening around here, but I recently changed my ways and have been staying away from downtown. I actually know the guy hit in the head in this article, and the brother very well. No, I am not involved with the drugs they do, I only smoke weed. What the article doesn’t mention is that the guys that showed up with bats are a local gang known as “The Black Knights”, and there are several such other gangs like that in northwest Montana, including the ICP gang which causes a lot of trouble. Most people around here don’t realize that, but I got caught up in that shit for a short time. I know it isn’t really relavent to the article, but I thought some of you who know who I am on here might find it interesting. Heres the article.

  • DangerousKindOfSnark

    She’s right.

  • Califboy

     Deport if illegal,plant them if not. I recently watched a documentary where the Dept Of Justice deports 600 gang members a week back to El Salvador and 1000 more new arrivals return. We need to take back our borders.

  • Califboy

     How about within city limits.

  • Heather_Habilatory

     He looks skinnier in the photo. Guess he spent too much time at the bar. There will be plenty of water for him to drink in prison!

  • Abroad

    Fortunately, this place was not unlicenced and actually had alternative methods of egress that were not barred.

    (Sounds absolutely horrific!)
