So we all make mistakes, right? And sometimes it’s not easy facing your mistake. And sometimes it’s tough going to court. And sometimes it’s tough going to court without being a hour-and-a-half late, with a can of beer.
I’ve been to court (once or twice, or more times) and I don’t remember seeing any sign saying you can’t bring beer with you when you’re a hour and-a-half-hour late. Which is why it’s an absolute miscarriage of justice that Keith Gruber of Swan Lake, New York, got busted for having four unopened cans of beer in his bag when going through the metal detector.
Hey’s it’s not like he was drinking … all of them.
Gruber was appearing on a … wait for it … felony drunken driving charge. And, believe it or not, he has prior DWI convictions. After being apprasied of the situation, Judge Frank LaBuda asked the 49-year-old Gruber is he enjoyed his “liquid lunch.” Ha Ha. Judges can be real cut-ups. Then he revoked his bail and sent him to jail.
No word on what happened to the beer.
Well, that must’ve been some tasty beet to prompt Gruber to risk getting in trouble by smuggling them into the courthouse. Maybe a microbrew, or something from Canada?
