What’s worse than running out of beer?

Posted by Rob on Thursday, 25 September, 2008

Police in Fargo, ND arrested a guy for stealing a beer truck. Unfortunately the truck was empty, so the guy dumped the vehicle and took off. Apparently one of the guys friends tipped off the police, probably because the thief failed to show up with beer…

Speaking of running out of beer, in South Charleston, WV, another guy was charged with battery on a police officer. Apparently the guy was pulled over for driving without headlights… And he smelled of alcohol, slurred his speech, failed a couple field sobriety tests and was taken to the police station.

So where did the battery on a police officer charge stem from? According to the report, while a breathalyzer machine was being set up, the suspect scooted the chair closer to the officer, raised his leg, and loudly passed gas and fanned it towards him.

He was also charged with driving under the influence, driving without headlights and two counts of obstruction.

Our last beer incident of the day comes from the Fond du Lac County Fair in Wisconsin. Father of the year candidate goes into the beer tent and orders 2 beers. One for himself, one for his 4-year-old son and 2-year-old to share.

When confronted by a police officer, the guy actually responded that it is legal for underage children to drink in Wisconsin as long as they are with a parent.

Are you kidding me?

Next the guy became belligerent, gets kicked out of the fair and is cited for disorderly conduct. I’m kinda hoping they can drum up some other charges…

Beware: Attack Python on Duty

Posted by Rob on Tuesday, 17 June, 2008

A man in Bridgeport, CT as arrested after he attempted to order his 9-foot-long albino python to attack two police officers. Lucky for the cops, pythons rank near goldfish on the pet obedience scale. None-the-less, the 21-year-old man was charged with disorderly conduct and threatening the police after the incident.

The cops were called to investigate a call that the man was threatening his girlfriend with the pet snake. The building superintendent opened his apartment door for the police officers and the man allegedly threatened them with the animal and told it to “Get them!” Although the python did not comply with the order, the man was taken into custody and the python was relocated to the city’s animal control shelter.

I’m sure the officers shared laugh after the incident, it can’t be very often that a lazy “attack” snake is used to protect its owner from authorities. Even with laser sighting, it would be rather hard to taser a 9-foot-long python if it did become aggressive.

It would be nice to believe that nothing will happen to you, but the reality of it is that an ounce of protection could be worth more than a pound of cure. What is Worth Protection to you? Your belongings? Your family? Your personal well-being?

Yours in Safety,
