A man wearing a beer costume has been arrested for driving under the influence.
I mean, this seems pretty on the nose, no? Well, you are what you eat.
According to a Facebook post, officials had intervened during a routine stop when the man underwent a breathalyser and sobriety test.
When police discovered that the driver had allegedly had a few one too many, they transferred him to Franklin County Jail.
“A career in law enforcement is exciting, and you get to experience something new every day. Sometimes you see things you can’t believe! Yesterday, our deputies were notified of a possible intoxicated driver traveling northbound on Interstate 35,” the post read.
“The vehicle was located and eventually pulled over. Deputies were surprised to see that the driver was wearing a beer can costume. Yes, you read that correctly.
"The driver was eventually placed under arrest for driving under the influence of alcohol and transported to the Franklin County Jail.”
Of course, users were having a field day with this bizarre yet amusing story.
One person wrote: “Is that considered an open container?”
Another said: “Is he trying to get shot by Kid Rock?”
A third joked: “An early Halloween costume!!”
While another commented: “Must have been a slow day! There were three patrol cars there.”
Similarly, in 2014, a man dressed up as an elf made headlines when he was charged with a DUI after being found asleep in his van in New Jersey.
He definitely ended up on the naughty list; either that or Santa made him redundant.
SBS reported that the 23-year-old man was discovered passed out in his car in the early hours of the morning, wearing an Elf on the Shelf costume.
Lieutenant James Macintosh told that outlet that the New Jersey native was asleep behind the wheel of a van with its engine running, lights on and music blaring.
He said Chellis was in a red shirt, red pants and a white ruffled collar.
Macintosh said that Chellis seemed confused about where he was and had an open can of beer in the car as he woke up.
He was then issued a summons and released to a family member.
