Drunk Texans Thrown In Jail After Botched Beer Run In Wyoming
A busted beer run In Gillette culminated with the arrest of four men from Texas on Saturday night.
The saga began when a local gas station called to report that a man in a "fancy white car" had stolen a case of beer from the cooler, according to County 17. The culprits of the beer run could have been home free, but the white Mercedes Benz pulled over on Highway 59 after two of the passengers got into a fight.
A Campbell County Sheriff's Deputy was passing by when he saw two of the Texans wrestling in a ditch on the side of the road. The driver of the car failed a sobriety test and was arrested for DWUI. When the driver told deputies that one of his passengers was behind the wheel at the time of the beer run, the passenger was also arrested for DWUI. Another passenger admitted to stealing the beer and was charged with shoplifting.
The fourth man in the car was driven to a nearby gas station and released. Later in the evening, deputies were called back to the gas station after the man was reportedly harassing customers inside the store. The last passenger soon joined his friends in jail after being charged with disturbing the peace and public drunkenness.
