WEST ALLIS - A bar owner could be in serious trouble with the federal government. A bartender was videotaped burning a statue of President Obama.

And the whole thing was video taped. Click Here to watch raw video of the incident.

So far, the bar owner hasn't explained why the bartender torched the statue of the President a cheering crowd.

People in West Allis were shouting and laughing as the bartender torched the statue for the crowd. Flames tore through the statue with what looks like duct tape wrapped around it's neck.

West Allis Police say they found out about the incident after it was reported at Yester Years Pub and Grill on Greenfield Avenue.

West Allis police say the Secret Service is also investigating. The Secret Service investigates any possible threats against the president.

TODAY'S TMJ4 obtained video from someone who watched the fire and said they feel upset.

The President of Milwaukee's NAACP is outraged and worries it could be racially motivated. "Very offensive. And it sends a terrible message to other people," said Jerry Ann Hamilton.

Yester Years Pub and Grill is owned by Karen Schoenfeld. We wanted to ask her what the bartender meant with the fire. But a message left at the bar wasn't returned. And no one answered the door at her New Berlin home
.
"I regret that it happened, that it happened in our state. I think that's the worst image that a person can send out," said Hamilton.

Wednesday afternoon the Secret Service told me they can't comment on this case, saying they don't comment on any so-called intelligence cases.

NAACP leaders maintain they're going to push for a full investigation.

LBC, that's the way they roll! Not because of the white part, but, because of the black part.

... burning an "effigy" of obama. I'm surprised he didn't bow down to the president of mexico.

The man takes himself seriously and truly doesn't have a clue as to what a boor he is.

as much as I dislike obama, behavior such as this does nothing to help the opposition's cause. It simply makes us look like a bunch of radicals (even though I secretly throw darts at his image, I refrain from doing so in public).
Yep, if I was the boss "pyro boy" would be kicking turds down the highway as I would be anxiously awaiting being audited for the last 30 years or so and generally enjoying all branches of government crawling up my ass!
