Ok ok ok – I know . . . I’ve already made excuses for a man caught riding a bike drunk, and now this . . . Honestly, though, this story made me laugh harder than anything I’ve read recently, so for that reason alone it should be important. Remember, it isn’t true unless it makes you laugh.
So, with that in mind, here is yet another drunken loser trying to make life more fun, and being brought down by the greyfaces again. Don’t let the bastards grind you down!
Here is the story:
DEVILS LAKE, N.D. (AP) – A man is accused of driving an electric-powered shopping cart around a grocery store here while drunk, endangering other customers.
Clifford Mattson, 27, was charged with disorderly conduct, a misdemeanor, Detective Sue Schwab said Tuesday.
Schwab said police went to the Leevers grocery store Monday afternoon, after reports of a drunken man driving the shopping cart into people and nearly knocking them down.
“He appeared to be actually driving after them,” Schwab said. No one was hurt, she said.
The maximum penalty for the misdemeanor charge is 30 days in jail and a $500 fine, Schwab said. A court hearing was set for July 19.
