Light Beer - Odd Stories from the Web

The last 36 hours have been tough for beer lovers, reading about Michael Jackson's death and the beer world's remembrance of the great man. So, in an effort to provide beer stories that are a bit lighter in weight, I submit this story for your reading pleasure, forwarded to me by my brother-in-law, who happens to live in Wisconsin [thanks Cool-Hand].

You just can't make this stuff up, by the way....

ABBOTSFORD, Wis. - Police in Wisconsin have cited a legless man and his friend on a drunken driving charge, saying the amputee was at the wheel while his friend worked the pedals.

It was the third and second such arrests for the men, respectively.

Police say the amputee was sitting in the driver's seat and told officers he had too much to drink. But he argued he wasn't really driving since the other man was on the brake and accelerator.

Both men also were cited for driving after their licenses had been revoked.

Police say a third man in the truck, who was also drunk, walked himself home after the traffic stop.
