From the Times Herald-Record of Middletown, NY: A man facing a felony driving-while -intoxicated charge showed up at Court with a bag full of beer — and was thrown in jail without bail. Keith Gruber, 49, had a scheduled 10:30 a.m. pretrial hearing. Gruber came to court about an hour and a half late carrying a black bag that contained four cans of beer. He also was carrying an open can and was obviously drunk, officials said. He tried to throw away the can, but officers stopped him.
The bag was confiscated by court officers at the security check and was presented to the Judge, who asked Gruber if he enjoyed his “liquid lunch.” Gruber indicated he did and said he was sorry. He was promptly jailed without bail.
I wonder if he had a nice wine with dinner?
