In today’s DISCOUNT NEWS we are chatting about all the BOOZE, BEER, and KRUNKIN CRIMINALS! Its all stories involving some sort of getting all kinds of BOXED UP DRUNK!
Police say a 21-year-old man who was killed Thursday morning in Lake Delton was drunk and lying in the roadway when he was struck by a passing motorist. The driver of the vehicle faces a homicide charge for being drunk and behind the wheel. Friends of Wisconsin Dells resident Michael Weatherford told investigators that he was celebrating his 21st birthday and was “extremely intoxicated” when he stumbled into the roadway early that morning. The friend said he tried pulling Weatherford off the road, but could not. Instead, he began flagging cars to go around his friend. He said the first two cars to pass heeded his signal and went around Weatherford, but a third vehicle, driven by Rigoberto A. Ernantes, did not. According to a criminal complaint, when police arrived at the scene at about 4:40 a.m., they found two men standing over Weatherford and Ernantes allegedly said, “I can’t believe I hit him.”
We mentioned this yesterday, the chick in Belleville where a 36 year old called 911 SIX TIMES because her boyfriend wouldn’t let her get beer. But, we have an even better story.
A young Heidelberg Township man on Monday admitted knocking out a friend at a house party in January after the victim, who suffered a skull fracture and brain bleeding, arrived with the wrong kind of beer. Jeremy J. Kegarise, 19, pleaded guilty to simple assault, a misdemeanor that carries up to two years in prison. In return for the plea, felony aggravated assault and summary harassment were dropped. TheCounty Deputy District Attorney Anna-Kristie Morffi Marks said the fight occurred around 11:30 p.m. on Jan. 28 at a home in the 7400 block of Camp Meeting Road in Lynn Township. Kegarise had given Antonio M. Inzillo, 21, of New Tripoli, $15 to buy beer and wasn’t happy when Inzillo came back with the wrong kind, according to testimony. Inzillo was asked to buy it because Kegarise is under age. “What type of beer did he buy?” asked Judge James T. Anthony, as Kegarise smiled and looked downward. “He bought Yuengling (lager); he was supposed to buy light beer, judge,” responded Kegarise’s attorney, public defender John Baurkot. Authorities said Kegarise and Inzillo had been drinking. Kegarise said he had broken up two fights Inzillo had been involved with days before his fight with Inzillo.
Buying the wrong type of beer can apparently upset more than a person’s palate. According to the Tuolumne County Sheriff’s Office, 27-year-old Sonora resident, Danielle Holt, was arrested after her boyfriend told deputies she had slapped him for refusing to go back to the store after buying her the wrong type of beer. Holt’s boyfriend called 911 around 9:30 p.m. after receiving his alleged punishment. He informed arriving deputies that Holt had gotten drunk and talked him into walking to the store to pick up some more beer. When he returned with the wrong suds, Holt got angry, ordered him to go back to the store, and walloped him when he refused. According to the Tuolumne County Sheriff’s Office, deputies arrived and arrested Holt, who began fighting and screaming. As they were physically removing her from the house, Holt kicked a chair at her boyfriend, then kicked out at the deputies as they were placing her in the back of the patrol car. Finally, deputies used a Hobble restraint to safely transport Holt to County Jail where she was booked for Battery and resisting arrest.
