Man cracks a few open after being locked in beer cooler

It sounds like some kind of mixture of a dream and a nightmare: being locked inside a beer cooler overnight.

A Wisconsin man was perusing the selection in the walk-in beer cooler at a convenience store, when the door automatically locked at midnight, trapping him inside. Rather than pounding on the doors so an employee would come let him out, he decided to stay and help himself to a few brewskies, since he couldn’t purchase any alcohol after midnight. By the time a customer let him out at 6 a.m., he had killed a tallboy of Icehouse (of course) and three cans of Four Loko, which is apparently still around.

But because there is no justice in the world, the man was charged with theft. The store locked him in there, and yet he’s the one who police say has committed a crime.
