UFO in Augusta turns out to be restaurant light

AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) — Several Augusta residents called police and the local newspaper to report a UFO hovering over the capital city this week.

But there were no little green men invading. Just chimichangas and fajitas.

Deputy Police Chief Jared Mills tells the Kennebec Journal (http://bit.ly/1bL5EOh ) the source of the UFO rumor turned out to be a spotlight being used by Margaritas Mexican Restaurant to celebrate its reopening on Wednesday night.

Manager Rob Michaud says the restaurant recently completed renovations and was shut down for about two weeks.

Mills says police asked the restaurant to shut off the light because of the concerns.
